A recent article, Entrepreneurs: 4 Reasons to Join the Location Independent Revolution, by Dave Boehl,believes that the concept of a traditional office is shifting– the office of the future will provide employees more location independence than ever before.
Below are 4 reasons why telecommuting has become so popular.
- Virtual Office
All you need for your very own virtual office is a laptop with a Wi-Fi connection. Cost-friendly video streaming tools like Skype, Join.me, and Google Hangouts are so effective that they serve as alternatives for real face-to-face meetings. Now, people from all over the world can come together, without being in the same room.
- Co-Working Spaces
Business owners and team members will occasionally need the use of a collaborative working environment. Renting out a shared office space is more flexible and cost efficient than renting a traditional office space.
- Flexible work schedule
What matters most for a business is that the job gets completed, and that employees give it their best effort. In some business settings this can be accomplished without an established 9-5 work day. Employees can craft a flexible work schedule that meets the needs of the company and accommodates the needs of their personal life.
- Cut down Costs
Setting up a fully furnished office with all the required amenities is expensive. You have to pay for rent, utilities, furniture, and technology. Not to mention all the extra costs, like unexpected repairs and other incidentals. Your business will save money if your employees are responsible for providing their own workstations. Content team members lead to a higher retention rate and fewer sick and personal days.
Managing a remote workforce requires some adjustments, but the benefits are proving to be a great advantage for businesses.
