Yes, it is. More than just a trend, remote work recognizes the possibility of finishing tasks without the need for physical presence.
Gone are the days where you have to pay people to sit in front of their computer, in their cubicle, from 8 am to 5 pm just to finish tasks.
With the modern era and technological advancements, we say goodbye to seat warmers and hello to the laptop lifestyle!
Without thinking too complicatedly, remote work has offered us so much more than just personal benefits.
Lighter traffic flow
With the reduction in the number of employees going to work, other people can experience lighter traffic flow and faster travel time.
As an added benefit, there will be less pollution since lesser vehicles will travel.
Less paper consumed
Paper is made through trees.
With the increased usage of the digital space, lesser volume of paper is consumed.
This will definitely benefit the environment.
Updated workforce training
Because workers aren’t trained for in office environments, independent professionals need to train themselves for self-management, online etiquette, and asynchronous communication.
As a result, a new breed of leaders are rising.
Because of the flexibility of your schedule, you can now go out with your family and friends, travel more, maybe sleep more. Whatever you want to do, you now have the freedom to do so.
Conserving natural resources
Since you’re now working at home, you don’t have to take a bath everyday! You can even wear the same clothes for days.
Kidding on this one!
Never forget your hygiene.
So now, what do you think? Is remote work a trend? Or is it here to stay?
