What is remote working? In its simplest terms remote working means that you have no fixed office or place of work and you are free to work from wherever you want.  Sometimes this is from home, or a one of a variety of company locations; it could even be from the nearest Wi-Fi hotspot or a local park.


Why are employees choosing remote working? For employees there are a number of very obvious benefits. You can cut out the daily commute which saves time and money. You can work the hours which suit your style the best; some people work best in the morning, some people work best later at night. If you have family or childcare commitments you can work your hours around these; this offers flexibility. 


Why are employers choosing remote working? After taking into account things like security issues and how productivity is managed, there are multiple benefits for employers too.  They save on office space which is an expensive premium; employers also save on associated costs like, heating, security, electricity, telephone bills and even things like tea and coffee.  Remote working is seen as flexible and family friendly; this means that the talent pool that employer has to choose from is much more diverse and accessible.


Studies by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) have shown that well-managed remote and home working arrangements actually increase an employee’s productivity and their engagement levels. 


In a nutshell using a remote working workforce carries many benefits to an employer; benefits which cannot be ignored if you want to be an employer of choice and move with the times in terms of innovation.  It’s something every employer should consider.
