At Range, we’re always looking to understand how people work today and how they will work in the future. One workplace trend that can no longer be shelved for future discussions is remote work. That future is already here.
Remote work is becoming increasingly common — by Gallup’s estimates, 37% of workers work remotely at least some of the time. Other studies have indicated 70% of global workers work remotely at least once per week.
Remote work is essentially about flexibility. What you, as an employer, are saying to employees is, “We trust you will get the work done. You can get it done on your time and in a location that makes sense to you.”
But getting started with remote work at your company likely isn’t as simple as making that declaration. There are a number of misconceptions about remote workers that distract from the very substantial benefits remote work brings to both an employer and their employees. And then there’s the very real question of “What processes do we need to put in place to set everyone up for success?”
We’ll discuss those topics and a whole lot more in this remote work white paper, which unpacks:
After reading this white paper, our hope is that you take what you’ve learned back to your company to begin having more focused discussions on remote work. And when you begin working to determine what remote work looks like on your team, remember Range is here to help.
