The Benefits of a Remote Work Business Policy


The huge increase in remote work during the pandemic was a direct response to a temporary health crisis, but a lot of our region’s businesses have allowed the majority of their employees to telecommute in the aftermath of the pandemic. This is a good thing.

For organizations and companies which value employee engagement, a robust remote work policy is a critical option to think about. When employees feel appreciated and valued they’ll be more motivated to support the company’s goals. Furthermore, the ability to telecommute during times of emergencies, shutdowns, or disasters can ensure continuity of business.

Remote work is an excellent way to attract and retain top talent. In fact, studies show that companies with flexible work schedules have lower turnover and higher engagement rates than those that do not have them. It allows organizations to reduce overhead costs, such as utilities, real estate, and office equipment.
