But, although the arrival of the COVID-19 has marked a before and after in relation to remote work, this way of working brings a list of benefits that facilitate the organization of both the employee and the company.
It should be noted that it is not always possible to practice it, not all jobs or all people can perform their tasks remotely, but many of them can, and the option of choosing teleworking should be considered whenever possible. It is estimated that more than 40% of the work performed in companies can be done remotely.
- Increased productivity: 85% of companies say that productivity has increased because of the greater labor flexibility thatr remote work brings.
- Improved work/life balance: 75% of employees who are working remotely say that working externally has improved their work/life balance.
- Stress reduction: 40% of teleworkers say they are usually “not stressed” during a normal workday.
- Improved employee morale and reduced turnover: Fifty-seven percent of employers say telework flexibility has improved morale and reduced turnover.
Consequently, you will make your employees happier and feel freer, the 8-hour working day is over, if one of your employees is better off working from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm and then take a 2-hour break because he wants to attend some training courses, and then reconnect from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, why can’t he do it? As long as your employee keeps to the hours he/she has to work per day/week, it is very positive that you give him/her the freedom to organize himself/herself, and telecommuting makes it very easy.
According to the latest INE data, telecommuting can increase productivity by 5 to 25%.
Cost reduction for companies and employees
All these benefits that we have been discussing and developing translate into a better attitude of workers, who see how their working conditions improve, can take care of their families, reduce their stress levels and have more energy. Thus, employees tend to be more motivated and involved with the company.
And you: have you started to implement telecommuting as a result of COVID-19 or had you already done it before? What positive aspects have you and your employees gained by starting to work remotely?
