The rise of remote working

In the UK, the number of remote workers increased by 25% in the decade from 2008 to 2018. That rate was mirrored in mainland Europe. As digital capability transformed the way we live inside and outside of work, it shaped our behaviour and expectations. Post-pandemic, it’s anyone’s guess what percentage of the workforce will keep working remotely. One thing’s for certain – the country won’t be ‘going back’ to work.

What are the benefits of remote working

Remote working comes with a plethora of benefits not just for employees, but for managers and employers too. With remote employees looking to make work fit around their own daily schedules, many now have the opportunity to create a working environment that works for them. The remote employee can juggle childcare and home life alongside their work duties and tasks in a more flexible working environment, ultimately restoring a better work-life balance.

Benefits for remote managers:

Remote managers now benefit from having the tools and technology at their fingertips to manage their team efficiently from a distance. Without the distractions of the office, team leaders can focus less on the demands of daily face-to-face meetings and a stressful commute, and more on guiding their team members through their daily duties from afar, delegating effectively and reaping the rewards of improved productivity.

Benefits for business leaders:

For business leaders, the benefits of remote working are manifold. Introducing a structure of remote teams means you can put greater focus on the health and wellbeing of your staff. Improving trust in a remote working environment means happier healthier working relationships across your organisation. This, in turn, means you can improve productivity, efficiency and staff longevity all while also driving down the costs of expensive office space and other operating costs of running a successful business.
