It’s been just under a year since Covid-19 came about, which means that – you guessed it – there are more of us working out of the office than ever before. But what do you actually know about remote work?
Business leaders are slowly coming to grips with the idea that remote work isn’t just a temporary phase, it is here to stay.
So, whether you’re looking to work from home full-time or just want to find out a little more about the remote work lifestyle, we’ve compiled some shocking (and a few not so shocking) statistics about work from home. You might be surprised by some of them!
As expected, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the way we work.
Nowadays, employee satisfaction is everything. Companies with happier employees have been found to have less turnover, are more likely to out perform competition, and be more profitable.
So, how does remote work fit into all of this?
o Better work-life balance (91%)
o Increased productivity/better focus (79%)
o Less stress (78%)
o Avoiding a commute (78%)
But while there are many benefits to work-from-home, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine.
In order to maximize the benefits of working from home, it is crucial that employers implement policies to support their employees such as offering mental health perks.
Plus, if working from home does get too lonely or difficult for some reason of another, companies can consider using the BOOQED app to help workers find a temporary workspace near their current location.
It’s clear that employees prefer and appreciate having the option to work from home, and if done correctly, can benefit your company too!
