Business owners might be interested to learn that recent research has revealed the benefits of providing flexi-time and remote working for employees.

ONS data found that use of flexi-time increased by 12.35% from 2012-2016 and last year TUC revealed the number of people working remotely has risen by nearly a quarter of a million over a decade.

Statistics show that remote working creates:

  • Increased productivity – by 16%
  • Higher morale – a study showed that those who work from home love their job more compared to those in an office
  • Higher employee retention
  • Less stress – one in five employees say that juggling their work and personal lives is the main cause of stress.

Daniel Rowles, a lead coach from Target Internet explains his reasons for having his staff work remotely, “We’ve made the choice to be a fully distributed company, meaning everyone on our team does all their day-to-day work from home.

“This approach has proven effective in a number of ways. Our staff are happy to be free from the stress of commuting and to have the opportunity to work flexibly; it’s good for our budget and the environment, as we don’t have to keep an office running; and because we do much of our work online, it doesn’t negatively impact our operations.

“This strategy has allowed us to expand our workforce, and pick those with the best talent rather than those who live near Brighton. All our staff meet up for meetings and socials, but remote working works best for us day-to-day.”
