If ever a person needed a reason to work remotely, it would be a simple look outside in the month of January. At least this is the case in the city of Toronto, where Melo Technology is headquartered. Over the past couple of days, snowfall has reminded us of just how frigid it is during this time of year. Working remotely means avoiding commutes on snow-filled streets. But, of course, there are numerous business-boosting benefits to working remotely.
Flexibility and work-life balance boosts productivity.
To many remote workers, having flexible schedules is a top benefit. It enables them to create their own schedules and work during their most productive hours. Productivity, in fact, is the name of the game. “By working on my own schedule, I can easily tend to my tasks with greater ease,” commented one of Melo’s team members, “It lets me manage my personal life and handle family commitments so it’s puts me in a better mental state to handle my job.”
The betterment of work-life balance cannot be understated. It has long been known that a happy staff is a productive staff. At Melo Technology, we’ve noticed that the flexibility given our remote workers helps them to produce high-quality work. Not to mention, modern technology, such as video conferencing, makes it easy for everyone on our team to stay in touch regardless of their locations.
Cost savings add to bigger bottom lines.
As we noted earlier, working remotely helps to eliminate unnecessary commutes. Naturally, this can result in significant cost savings for both employees and employers. Employees can save money on commuting expenses, work attire and meals. Meanwhile, employers can reduce overhead costs associated with maintaining a physical office space.
Let’s not forget the wonders of modern technology that we mentioned earlier. The allowance of virtual meetings and conferences eliminates the need for expensive travel arrangements and accommodations. Of course, this all contributes to a lot of money being saved.
Access to a global talent pool strengthens staffs.
Gone are the days when a person’s living location was a factor in an employment decision. Today, remote work opens up opportunities for companies to hire people from all over the country – or the planet! By hiring remote workers, businesses can access a diverse range of skills and expertise without being limited by geographical boundaries.
Once again, modern technology comes into play here. It facilitates seamless communication and collaboration between team members, regardless of their locations. Remote work enables businesses to build high-performing teams composed of the best talent from around the world.
Take advantage of Single Number Reach!
Modern technology at its finest, Single Number Reach (SNR) is a remote worker’s dream come true. The feature allows incoming calls to be routed and received on multiple devices using a single phone number. With SNR, when someone dials a specific phone number, the call is automatically directed to multiple designated devices simultaneously. This ensures that the call is not missed by the intended recipient.
