Remote work

Remote work has many names including work from home, telecommuting, teleworking, or distributed work. This type of work takes place outside of the traditional workplace, whether that is at an employee’s home, a local café or coworking space, or on the road.

Keep your employees healthy, happy, and productive working from home.

Remote work has many compelling advantages for organizations to:

·       increase productivity,

·       reduce turnover

·       decrease operating costs, in turn boosting the bottom line.

·       be environmentally sustainable, reducing your GHG emissions from commuting

·       For employees, remote work means flexibility and autonomy.

An Angus Reid survey found that 77% of respondents said that the flexibility and autonomy to determine when and where they work directly affects their decision to stay with their employer. This is critical for businesses who want to retain top-performing talent. 

Despite these advantages, many organizations are unable to reap the full benefits of remote work. This is due to outdated policies and practices, and insufficient resources. The Canadian Institute for Safety, Wellness & Performance (CISWP) found that 80% of their survey respondents felt tired at the end of the workday at home, indicating burn out, and nearly 70% had signs of musculoskeletal disorders. When employees are unwell, they do not perform optimally.

Addressing the concerns of remote employees early can reduce potential complications and help organizations build a strong workforce. The time is now to take your organization to the next level with our support.
