At the same time, employers roll over their heads about how to increase productivity and make the office more user-friendly. Some of the most successful companies implement a simple working method that helps both sides – a remote work policy.
Researchers have already predicted that remote work will cover companies globally in a few upcoming years; there are weighty arguments for implementing this too.
Many can mention it as a distracting factor, but studies suggest it’s about the individual’s motivation. First of all, many employees are provided with laptops, so it is easier for them to connect to the work environment, but at the same time enjoy the coziness of their home office. On the other hand, some people use collaboration spaces of cafes, where they can change the environment but stay closer to their home.
Remote work also raises productivity. It lets workers manage their daily schedule more productively, making them happier and increasing the entire company’s outcome. Researchers found that people are more productive outside the office for at least 4 hours a week (during standard business time) than those stuck by their desks for the whole week. Those who work with a flexible schedule evaluate their productivity at the highest level because the surroundings leave space for creativity and do not create tension.
Lastly, mentioned working practice is stress-free. Employees do not necessarily have to commute when for example, it’s hellishly hot outside, their managers are not looking over their shoulders, or there are no noisy colleagues nearby. Employees can allot their time conveniently without office noise and do the tasks more accurately. With this in mind, we have released an ability for people to book the time whenever they work remotely. In that case, managers and colleagues can see when you aren’t in the office. Also, it can be integrated with Slack that can inform colleagues about your plans to work remotely.
