Boost Employees' Satisfaction and Talent Retention
It's should be secret to anyone who manages teams, that one of the best ways to improve your staff retention is workplace flexibility. Working from home often allows for fewer interruptions, a quieter noise level, and less or more efficient meetings. Add in the lack of a commute, remote workers typically have more time and fewer distractions, which leads to both increased productivity and staff satisfaction.
Go Green and Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
One of the fastest, cheapest ways for organisations to reduce their carbon footprint and to affect climate change is by reducing commuter travel. This year we have seen congestion, and traffic during the pandemic decrease significantly and analysts have suggested we may see change in how our business districts look and function moving into the future.
Challenging traditional working environments
Remote work enables companies to create a more diverse workforce by hiring people from different socioeconomic, geographic, and cultural backgrounds and with different perspectives. By hiring employees and giving them the tools they need to work from home companies enable their employees to manage illness or disability that may make commuting difficult or helping employees deal with caretaking schedules.
Better work-life balance for employees across the business
Remote work can cater for workers with the desire to work to flexible schedules. Employees can choose to start and finish their day at a time which suits them. Studies have shown performance based goals rather than time-based can lead to strong productivity and employee satisfaction outcomes. Whether it’s balancing school schedules, medical appointments, and errands, attending an online fitness class, or even being home for a contractor can all be done a little more easily when you work from home.
