Remote Working is Big Business in 2019
Where going to the office used to be a mandatory requirement, companies are now designing their workplace culture to fit in with a variety of flexible lifestyle choices. Fundamentally, businesses are becoming people-centric rather than work-centric. Flexible and remote working has become one of the most recognisable workplace trends over the past few years and the biggest enabler of this has been technology.
With a huge expansion in the number of devices and mobile applications which are driving better communications and efficiencies among the workforce, more so than ever, people can set up the office from anywhere. An increasing number of companies across the globe are adopting a flexible approach, where people can work from home or remotely. Some team members even work remotely full-time if their job does not involve meeting external clients or stakeholders. This is commonly the case for technology engineers, digital marketers and in-house designers. Hence the rise of the “digital nomad”.
According to a report published on Vitality.co.uk, in 2017, UK employees lost 11.7% of their working hours due to absence. The productivity loss is highest in the wholesale and retail trade sector and in the education sector. Employees who are able to work flexible hours and/or work from home lose less working hours due to absence, do more physical activity and feel significantly less fatigue than those who don’t.
