Post available in spanish

The most valuable resource of a company is its staff. Therefore, the companies try to generate a better labor climate every time. One of the many advantages of remote work is that employees can feel comfortable.

Introduction to remote work

Thus, it is clear that telework has been the primary modality in many jobs during the pandemic. One only needs to look at the data to prove it. Thus, the statistical portal Statista points out that in Spain, we went from having 951,800 people who usually worked from home in 2019 to more than 3 million in 2020. That is an increase of 216.8%.

Thus, for many salaried professionals, remote work has become an exciting way of working. However, not all companies intend to continue promoting this new form of employment. Consequently, this can end up being a problem for themselves since there are many benefits that this modality can offer to their business.

Benefits for workers

In this sense, the benefits of remote work to workers’ lives are pretty well known by the population.

Some of these are greater ease in reconciling work life with personal and family life, a benefit that, in turn, improves the employee’s mood and happiness. Another advantage is that it provides transportation savings and a more economical and healthy diet. It also increases productivity through better time management. And, related to this, flexible hours.

Benefits of remote work for companies

However, it is not common to know the advantages this type of work offers to companies. However, several managers advocate these advantages. Among them, we find:

  • Higher productivity. Various studies determined that 74% of the business people in Spain have perceived an average increase in productivity of 28,5% during forced telework.
  • The more outstanding personal commitment of the worker to the company. Its values and objectives by being flexible with them.
  • The attraction of talent. This type of work modality has become a competitive advantage for many companies.
  • Reduction of absenteeism. When working from home, the employee is in charge of regulating their time and fulfilling their tasks. As a result, there are fewer requests for days off or shift changes.
  • Access to geographically dispersed professionals. In the past, communication between work teams required face-to-face meetings. However, with the advent of technology, companies can conduct their conferences online. Because of this, they can recruit workers from anywhere in the world. They are expanding their networks and working with the most talented people, regardless of where they are.
  • Reduced business expenses. Saving on rent, electricity, water, and other costs of having offices at total capacity.
  • Digitalization of the workforce. Remote work involves mastering technological tools and platforms to share information and work material. Therefore, workers have to acquire digital skills.

 

Conclusions

In summary, and concerning the above, adopting remote work practices has clear benefits for both employees and business growth. Moreover, this is not necessarily an all-or-nothing proposition. In most cases, the most productive solution for business owners and employees is to split time between telecommuting and in-office work. In addition, if your company is prepared to telecommute. In times of crisis, you guarantee the continuity of your business and that of your customers.
