There is a huge rise in the number of professionals who are working from home around the globe. And its working very productively for both workers and employers. But mostly people tend to equate this benefit from worker perspective and not from employer’s perspective. Although both are equally benefited with such remote work.
What is remote working?
Remote work is the work which is completed from any environment other than employer’s environment. This may include working from home, beach, hotel, terrace or anywhere, where you can Internet connectivity.
Here, I am sharing few points that will highlight the benefits of hiring remote resources from employer’s perspective.
Cost-effective recruitment, salary and perks
The great benefit for hiring resources online is that you do not have to spend entire day and money for the recruitment. You can take interviews via video calling at your own comfort zone with low salary. Also, by hiring a remote candidate, the process is faster and the job offer can take into consideration that working remotely is one of the perks.
Access to global talent
When you hire remote resources, you have wide number of options to hire resources across the globe according to your needs. If you want to expand your business in some other area or region then the best way is to hire a resource from that region and let him work for you. You can conduct interview online and hire.
We all know lot of things are required to run an office which includes electricity, computers, brick and mortar of course, paper and ink etc. These things are already not counted in environment friendly. By not commuting to office as daily work routine, you reduce traffic and pollution. Also, fewer office supplies are used and electricity to run their office is lessened.
More productive resources
When your employee works at their own pace and comfortably, then ultimately they are more productive. In addition to this, remote workers often incorporate more physical exercise into their day than office workers, who are either stuck in the office or commuting to and from their homes. This helps to maintain their health and they can work with more productive.
No more commuting
Employers can dedicate more time to work as they do not need to travel daily with heavy traffic. Without having to start their workday with a lengthy commute, crushed into a train car, smashed on a bus, or being jostled on a busy city sidewalk, telecommuters can start their workday earlier and dedicate more time to the job. This will reduce their time and energy which will help them to be more productive and energetic. Even you as an employer need not to hear more excuses like “I was stuck in traffic” or “my car smashed”.
Less sick leaves
Workers can manage to work from home even when they are not feeling well. Many of the times we take leaves from office when we are not well. However, when you are at home, you can take care of yourself and still get work done. Researchers have found that remote workers are off ill less frequently than on-site workers.
Accustomed to technology
Ofcourse, remote working lets you get more familiar with advanced technology and tools. While working in office you communicate face to face with colleagues without any delays where there is not much use of technology. But when it comes to work remotely, you get dependent on technology and Internet. It is important to use required tools and high speed connectivity Internet connection to communicate with colleagues.
