Remote work benefits

Remote work: benefits for you and your employees

Remote work is a very effective work trend for companies and very attractive for employees, so it is not surprising that it is increasingly implemented in companies around the world. At present, and especially because of the advent of COVID-19, this way of working has become a reality for many employees in Spain.

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.
But all this is best seen with data, so here are the 4 most important benefits of implementing remote work for you and your employees:
  • 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.
In this article we discuss and develop the main advantages of implementing remote work for your business and your employees.

Technological improvements

One of the main reasons for the growth of this new work model is that nowadays both companies and employees have the necessary technological tools to carry out their tasks online and remotely. In this regard, internal communication tools, online collaboration platforms and social networks, which facilitate communication among employees, must be taken into account. Among them, from TalentFY We want to highlight Slack, which allows fluid communication with other colleagues and creates a feeling of proximity and Team Spirit; Google Drive, which allows several people to work on the same document; and Google Meet, ideal for conferences and meetings, and/or to deal with topics that are more complicated to work on via written message.

Reconciliation

The increase in telecommuting in Spain and the rest of the world is also closely related to the demands of workers, who are demanding solutions that allow them to better reconcile their work and family life. Responding to these pleas from workers, many companies have decided to allow their employees to work from home. This makes it easier for the employee to organize his day, not only with his work tasks, but also with his personal tasks and activities.

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.

Increased productivity

As mentioned above, it is important to note that companies have realized that telecommuting increases employee productivity, you may ask: why? Among other things, because workers can dedicate more time to their tasks than they end up devoting to them when they are in the office. In addition, it avoids the constant interruptions that are quite common in offices and reduces time wasted in meetings.

According to the latest INE data, telecommuting can increase productivity by 5 to 25%.

Cost reduction for companies and employees

Companies have also realized that teleworking can lead to considerable cost reductions, since a physical location is not necessary, or at least not as large. In addition, companies save on per diems and travel expenses. For their part, there are many workers who do not yet have this type of incentive, in these cases they can also save on commuting and, more importantly, on time. And we must not forget that a good part of the day is wasted on the way to and from work.

Better attitude

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?
