Before the pandemic, there were many reasons why employees worked from home. For some, it was about removing distractions and focusing on work. For others, they simply lived too far away from the office. Working remotely is about maintaining a work-life balance.
Allowing employees to work remotely offers numerous benefits such as health and safety benefits during times of national emergencies. However, for some employees, working remotely has provided improved employee satisfaction, reduced attrition, increased productivity, and decreased unscheduled absences. For the company, it offers a greatly expanded pool of talent and less overhead costs for the entire company.
