Remote workers can actually save businesses’ money and time; and they can also drive operations and increase the spirit of teamwork as a whole. Despite being physically apart, desktop sharing, for example, ensures that those inside and outside the company are able to work together, supporting clients, creating value and increasing the overall quality of the provided services.
Studies are very clear: remote workers tend to be more productive than office workers. And the cause seems to be the freedom to plan their own schedules.
It’s only natural that organizations are encouraging their staff to work remotely; leaders and administrators are beginning to recognize the importance of working from anywhere, at any time, on any device. Every business is always on the lookout for a competitive edge, and employees continuously connected to the office can make a difference when there’s an urgent mail waiting to be answered or a serious problem needing to be addressed “as we speak”. So staying at home is no longer a euphemism for “missing work”; it’s an “I’m always ready” statement.
