    How remote work can be an opportunity for your company

    In the home office, we trust

    Letting people work from the comfort of their own homes gives them the most valuable thing an employer can give – trust. And you can be sure that your team is going to not only feel but also act the same way, putting all of their trust in your decisions and supporting your leadership. But trust comes with a lot of engagement. People who work from home are more willing to take responsibility and ownership of their projects. These are things that we see everyday in our work and it’s something we really appreciate. . Despite the fact that more and more people are seeing the benefits of having flexible working conditions, according to Owl Labs; “Around the world, 44% of companies don’t allow remote work at all.”  This is surprising, knowing that – according to Buffer – 99%! of people want to work remotely at least some of the time.

    What are some of the benefits of remote work? 

    1. More attractive job offerings – you stand out on the current employee-driven market,
    2. Talent from all over the world – you can pick the best people for the position, not just the best in your location,
    3. Clients from all over the world – Working remotely allows companies to attract customers and employees from different time zones.
    4. Cost savings – maintenance costs for offices have killed off a great number of new companies. When your employees work from home, you can invest more in their development and the development of the whole company.

    Fewer sick days – home office mode lets people work when they’re feeling just a little bit unwell. Due to Coronavirus, we’re starting to be very aware that – no matter whether people have an option to work remotely from time to time or they are fully remote – if they stay at home when they feel bad they’re protecting  their co-workers from also  getting sick.
