We have wrapped up the growing trends and existing models in remote, best practices with clear recommendations on how to implement remote mode into your organization, highlighting the benefits of such a model for any company, no matter big or small.
At Jobgether, we believe in a future of flexible work and the possibility of being able to work remotely, addressing employees' desires and aspirations and thus allowing everyone to be able to work in the way they want.
For some, this is a new form of work that has been introduced only during the spike of the Covid crisis, while for others, this form of freedom has been already a reality for many years.
Today, thanks to technology, the company can meet their goals while allowing its employees to work remotely.
Why is remote possible?
- Customer contact is no longer limited to a single geographical area. Call centers, applications, and websites (with chatbots that respond immediately and 24/7/365 to the least complicated consumer requests) have decentralized customer relations for even more responsiveness and interaction between the customer and the brand.
- The secondary sector is also experiencing profound upheavals. As a matter of fact, last December, Unilever launched a pilot project which allows its factory employees to run the machines from their homes using a simple laptop.
- Of course, digital technologies remove the obligation to all be present in the same workplace. Team communication now involves new tools like Slack or Trello.
- The remaining question is the corporate culture. This dimension clearly goes beyond technology and should be addressed in a specific way. However, the existence of successful fully remote companies demonstrates that corporate culture is possible even when all its employees work remotely.
