Benefits of Offering Remote Work
- Employees are overall happier and more productive. There is reduced stress levels associated with commutes (or lack thereof). Why not have a pajama day at work (from home) if you didn’t sleep well last night? Employees in surveys have noted that they get more work accomplished when they work from home. For those employees who do not get to work from home, they are looking for companies that do offer those options.
- Employees at home reduce your overhead costs. When employees work from home, they use their own utilities and eat their own food. That means reduced costs associated with water, lights, heating & air, etc.
- Profits are boosted by happy employees. The Wall Street Journal found that companies who allowed remote work at least 3 times per month were more likely to report a revenue growth.
- Attract and retain talent. A popular benefit in the talent acquisition process, work from home benefits are what candidates are looking for these days. Many candidates are referencing the lack of remote work options as a reason to turn down job offers. This also has an impact on current employees in determining if they leave a company.
