Remote work has become increasingly commonplace in the past years. According to FlexJobs, half or 41.8% of American workers have started working remotely since the pandemic began. In addition, some workers felt they were 35-40% more productive when working remotely instead of at the office.
If your company has plans to shift to a fully remote setup or a remote-first hybrid work arrangement, it’s essential to have a formal strategy for your employees. Without one, you may encounter problems as you transition people to remote work. For example, there may be a lack of clarity regarding working hours or cybersecurity vulnerabilities arising from your employees’ environments. Having a clear policy for working from home (or anywhere else, for that matter) ensures that everyone is aware of expectations.
