Is your company prepared for remote work?

Is your company prepared for remote work?

Working remotely has become noticeably more popular over the years. Given the current circumstances, some might even say it’s become a necessity. In a study conducted by Global Workforce Analytics it was found that:

  • 36% of the participants would choose remote work over a pay raise, and 37% would even take a pay cut.
  • For 95% of companies, remote work increases employee retention.

Remote Work is the Future

The above responses make compelling arguments, but this is just the beginning. Experts will even go as far to say that employees that are able to work from home will be more productive as their stress levels are significantly lower than your regular, everyday office worker. Employees are also more likely to do you a favor, as they are grateful to be able to spend more time with loved ones. It makes perfect sense, times are changing, and people are becoming more aware of the personal life benefits of having their own workspace, flexible working hours etc. In conclusion the future of work may very well be remote. Any forward-thinking company will make sure that they have a correct policy in place.

UNITECO

While others remain hesitant, many companies have already bitten the bullet and adopted this method of working. One recent example is the case of Uniteco.

Recently, this insurance company adapted their commercial offering to the online environment with the help of AuraPortal. This action allowed them to market the first professional liability policy that is entirely online.  As a result, they can now easily take measures to guarantee the safety of their employees and healthcare professionals, eliminating any negative effect on their operations as well as their customers.
