Welcome to the world of remote work, where distributed workforces are taking over! With the ever-increasing need for flexibility, efficiency, and cost savings, businesses and employees alike are turning to remote work as a powerful solution. And let’s not forget about the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced many companies to shift to remote work, proving its effectiveness in ways we never thought possible.
That’s why we’re excited to share our experience at the Lisbon Running Remote conference held on April 25 – 26, 2023. The event was simply amazing! Packed with valuable insights, it was an incredible opportunity to connect with other professionals in the industry, not just during the conference but also during the memorable post-conference gatherings.
If you are thinking about running a remote team, here are some advantages to consider:
Remote work allows team members to work from any location, allowing them to manage their work around their personal life. This can lead to better work-life balance and greater job satisfaction.
Running a remote team can save businesses money on office rent, equipment, and utilities. This can be particularly beneficial for small businesses and startups with limited budgets.
Access to a global talent pool
With remote work, businesses can hire the best talent worldwide, regardless of location. This allows for a more diverse and skilled team.
Many studies have shown remote workers are often more productive than their in-office counterparts. With fewer distractions and interruptions, remote workers can focus on their work and complete tasks more efficiently.
Better employee retention
Remote work can improve employee retention rates. Allowing employees to work from home can increase their job satisfaction and loyalty to the company.
Overall, we learned a lot about managing remote teams, and we’re thrilled to embark on this exciting journey with everyone. We’re always looking for ways to collaborate and share our knowledge, so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you think our employer of record services can be of great help to you or your friends. Let’s grow together!
