Whether it’s a full time remote job or the ability to work at home occasionally, remote working is a growing trend across industries. Companies may be dragging their feet in terms of creating workplace flexibility policies, hiring remote workers and deciding how to secure corporate data away from the office, but these companies are doing themselves a disservice.
Not only has the number of people who work remotely (either for a company or freelance) increased over the past decade, employee-driven desires are likely to continue pushing the trend – particularly as younger generations enter the workforce. Companies that embrace this trend rather than fight it will see increased access to top talent, improved employee retention and even increased employee productivity.
Still not convinced? Here’s a quick look at how workplace flexibility trends have been developing, what workers want and why allowing remote working is actually good for both employees and their employers.
This isn’t a trend that’s on the horizon – it’s one that’s been steadily growing for the past 15 years or so. Improving technology and connectively has allowed it to pick up momentum in recent years and it’s likely to continue growing aggressively as solutions like secure virtual desktops become more widely implemented.
Technology is making workplace flexibility feasible, but the main catalyst is employees. Today’s workers are placing increased emphasis on better work-life balance, minimizing stressful commutes, the ability to focus uninterrupted and other desires that align with working away from the office. And workers are increasingly letting these desires steer their careers.
Workplace flexibility isn’t something employees simply want, it positively impacts their work experience and productivity. Between increased productivity and a noticeably improved ability to hire top talent, employers should be just as enticed by flexible working programs as employees are. Happy employees can have a major impact on organizational success.
