How Remote Work Can Boost Your Businesses

Many businesses across the board had to adapt to the pandemic, and many chose working-from-home (WFH) as the best alternative to traditional practices. However, as the pandemic era begins to wane, so too does remote work. At present, only 12.7% of employees primarily work from home, which is down 22.3% from the pandemic peak of 2020.

Though, despite the decrease in popularity, WFH has many benefits over traditional work practices. A majority of employees report enjoying the elimination of a daily commute to and from work. In addition, remote work helps employees to save money on gas and lunch, as well as more overall flexibility in their job. As a result of all the advantages remote work offers, over 98% of employees prefer working remotely at least some of the time. However, the benefits are not for employees alone.

When implementing remote work, the flexibility and better work-life balances helps to foster a more positive work environment. In turn, employee productivity increases by 68% and employee turnover falls 50%. Furthermore, the ease of getting to work means employee absences fall by 56% employee absences and 50% fewer employee sick days.

Fortunately, letting employees work from home is made easier with remote work platforms like Unrubble. With AI scheduling and cybersecurity tools, there are plenty of options for just about any businesses.
