Remote work is changing the game.
The ability to work from anywhere in the world has opened up a lot of doors for freelancers and small business owners. It's easier than ever to find clients, create a brand and work with people worldwide.
But there are other benefits to remote work that go beyond the bottom line:
A more diverse workforce. Remote work allows companies to hire employees who may not have as many opportunities in their area, like veterans or single parents. It also gives workers access to jobs they couldn't otherwise get because they live in remote locations or can't afford to relocate.
Flexibility and work-life balance. Remote workers have more freedom over their work schedule and what they do while they're working. They can set their own schedules, which gives them more time with friends and family, who might also be remote workers. And since it's easier to take time off when you need it, people are happier at work and less likely to quit or look for another job — which is good for employers because turnover costs money!
Better payment rates: Most remote workers cost less to employ than their in-office counterparts because they're not paying overhead costs like rent, utilities, equipment and supplies — they just need internet access and perhaps a space to meet with clients (like a coffee shop).
Less cost for business owners: If you have an employee who works remotely, there are fewer expenses involved since they don't need an office or parking at work each day. You also don't have to worry about paying rent for office space or depending on location various government taxes as you would a full-time employee.
Remote work is a great way to attract talent, increase worker satisfaction and business value. We're moving into a time where knowledge and information is valued over physical presence when it comes to getting jobs done. Remote work allows businesses to hire out the best talent regardless of where they live geographically; with so many people looking to work remotely I think that this trend will only increase in popularity.
