7 Benefits Of Working Remotely That Can Make Everyone Happy
Updated: Oct 28, 2020
In 2015, after many years in the Corporate world, many of us started dreaming of working remotely. For me, the most difficult part of the corporate world was office politics, as well as dealing with difficult personalities, specially with senior managers who weren't ashamed of shouting to show their superiority (which wasn't). I always dreamed of finding a workplace where employees would come to work and be appreciated for the work they were delivering, for the efforts made, and the initiatives taken. Unfortunately, it's an Utopia, people use the workplace to acquire a status and a position to use power over others. For me, the goal was always to learn more, acquire knowledge and know how, not to delegate work, or having more employees under me...
This is why working remotely was the perfect solution for me, as I could just focus on my work without being affected by all the social aspects of the workplace (the jungle). But with the culture of not trusting and controlling the employees, the dream faded away. Managers preferred to have their staff under their nose even if they were not productive. Now with the pandemic paralyzing all the workplaces, I am pleased to see that this way of working is (almost) the only solution. Although managers are still afraid to lose control over employees, it seems like employees are getting their freedom again to just do their work. As the pandemic has affected all sectors and all businesses, it is quite funny to see how working from home can benefit employees and employers. I will explain below the 7 business benefits that employers can enjoy.
