Working while in pajamas? Sign me up! Working remotely or working from home has become one of the biggest trends in the workplace. Companies are starting to see the benefits of having their employees work remotely. Working remotely gives employers opportunities with more options when it comes to hiring the best employees. Employers can focus more on skill set versus the location of the potential hire. As an employee, working from home means less stress of commuting and more time to focus and be productive.

Here are some of the most useful tips for working remotely.

Working remotely allows for better work-life balance

For many businesses, even a couple of decades ago, working remotely would have been nearly impossible. Without the right technology, an employee had to go to the office to get their work done. The downside to these technological advances? Blurred lines between work and home life. So maintaining a healthy work-life balance is top of mind for so many employees. The ability to balance these two worlds has become the key to feeling happier and more productive while at work. Saving time that would otherwise be spent on a long commute allows employees to have better work-life balance and adds hours back into their days.

Remote employees have more freedom

It’s clear that the advantages of remote work help keep employees happy, engaged, and fulfilled. According to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace report, “The optimal engagement boost occurs when employees spend [around] three to four days working off-site.” Need to take a trip across the country to visit family? Or be home in the afternoon to attend a child’s soccer game? A traditional employee would need to request time off in order to do so. But a remote employee can still clock in from home or a regional headquarters at their destination, as well as check in, as needed. From working from home to traveling abroad to being in the office one day a week or three, employees enjoy the freedom of remote work.
