We live in a world where the office no longer exists. The people we work with are not in the same city or even the same country. We communicate with them through emails, phone calls, video calls, and other digital tools. We can work from anywhere as long as there is internet access and we can meet our performance targets at any moment (with bi-weekly check-ins). This remote working requires new ways of operating and organizing. Do you want to know why? Because remote working has many advantages:
It gives you freedom to work anywhere you want.
One of the greatest benefits of remote working is that you can work from anywhere. You can travel and still be able to access your job — provided you have a laptop and an internet connection. You can still be productive and make money while enjoying your vacation. You can work wherever you want and whenever you want. You can work in a small tropical island, in a snowy mountain, on a sandy desert, or in a bustling city — you have the freedom to choose. You can even change your working location whenever you want to experience something new.
It increases employee engagement and productivity.
In an office-based job, you may have to work with people you don’t like. You may have to work with people who aren’t as equally talented as you are. You may have to work with people who aren’t as committed as you are. This may cause frustration, stress, low morale, and low productivity. With remote working, you can choose to whom you want to connect. You can cultivate relationships with people who are committed, skilled, and who have the same goals as you do. You can create a network of like-minded people who want to achieve the same thing as you do. This will improve employee engagement and productivity because you’re working with people who care about their work and are committed to achieving their goals.
It fosters communication and collaboration.
Office-based working requires frequent communication and collaboration between co-workers. If you want to succeed in that environment, you need to communicate properly with your team and connect with them. You need to collaborate with them on everything from your project to office parties. But with remote working, you don’t have to talk to your co-workers every day. You can only communicate when necessary — when you want to ask for help, want to provide an update on your project, or want to organize a meeting. You don’t have to be constantly communicating with your team members in a remote work environment. You can focus on your work and only talk to your team members when you really have to.
It makes hiring more flexible and selective.
The traditional hiring process requires you to hire people who are geographically close to you. You have to hire people who live within your city or at least within your country. It’s not easy to find talented people who are willing to relocate to another place. You can only hire people who are willing to move to a different place. This hiring process is very limiting. It only lets you hire people who don’t mind moving to a new place. This remote working hiring process is more flexible and selective. You can hire people who are committed to their work. You can hire people who are equally talented as you are. You can hire people who are as committed as you are. You can hire people who have the same goals as you do.
It makes firing less painful.
In an office-based job, you need to fire people who aren’t as committed as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as equally talented as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as committed as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as committed as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as equally talented as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as committed as you are. You need to fire people who aren’t as equally talented as you are. It’s painful to fire people who don’t fit in your team. You may have to go to their office and talk to their co-workers. You may have to have a face-to-face conversation with the person who’s getting fired. This remote working firing process is much easier and less painful. You don’t have to let that person go to your office to talk to their co-workers. You don’t have to let that person go to your office and talk to you face to face. Instead, you can fire that person through a video call.
The Remote Work Space or Why You Shouldn’t Have an Office is a very interesting thing to read and is something that people should start taking note of. There are a lot of added benefits to this and people should be able to see that the traditional way of working is less effective and not as productive as this method is. It is important for people to understand that the traditional office is not a thing of the future and that there are ways to make the remote work space even better than it already is.
