The spread of the novel Coronavirus has taken a toll on the corporate world and has also shaken the working atmosphere where people are helpless but to step into a workplace with fear of contracting the virus. It has shaken the confidence in people for the foreseeable future and given rise to a new trend in the working conditions. Remote working conditions have become the recent trend that people are watching out for. Not only does it keep the daily workers and corporate works at the safety of their house, but also helps in enhancing and managing work efficiently, without fear.
Many of the leading job fields and companies, especially in the UK, have introduced the idea of innovative work-from-home options like:
- Virtual Assistance
- Virtual Graphic Designers
- Online Teachers
All these work from home jobs in the UK, mentioned above have also become an inspiration and fed the idea of thought into the business and companies of the mind in other countries as well. On that note, let’s understand the advantages of remote working and their effects beyond the pandemic.
Enhanced Work-life balance
It is one of the topmost advantages of working from home. Not having a work-life balance has remained one of the major complaints of the corporate salves. According to studies, over the past few months, 53% of the employees projected that they had developed a fixed routine which allowed them to spend time with their family and friends.
Commuting from one place to another is quite a hassle, especially in times like these when your workplace is pretty far off from the residence. While the world is still waiting for vaccination for the virus, it is a dangerous world out there, even for the foreseeable future. Hence, avoiding the commute, either through public or private transport, is a boon in disguise.
Enhancement in productivity
Although some employers believe that working in remote conditions can diminish productivity, studies show that it has enhanced 13% of global productivity. This means that many of the leading companies like Microsoft are also taking necessary actions to convert all their jobs to remote working roles, to maintain productivity.
This is both an advantage as well as a disadvantage. The employees must be available for communication, just like in-person communion without hampering the work potency. Hence, this enhances the chances for specific tools of communication and collaboration. But many companies have provided their employees with the right tools, which has not hampered their communication. This includes collaborative software, team check-ins, daily meetings, etc.
Lesser chance of sickness
In times like these, any reputable company will wish to keep their employees safe from the war of pandemic. Hence, working in remote conditions is the only way to keep them away from sickness and also boost their mental working capability.
