Working Remotely Makes Employees Happier and More Productive

Published in:

        Technology has changed the way we work. According to Gallup, 37% of of U.S. workers say they have telecommuted, a dramatic increase from the just 9% who reported the same back in 1995. And, as the number of remote workers increases, a new study from TinyPulse finds that employee reports of job happiness and productivity are rising as well. While there are many factors to consider when assembling your workforce, the trend in remote work has three critical advantages for small businesses:

  1. Find talent anywhere in the world. No longer limited by geographic location, small businesses can theoretically source top talent from around the world, without having to worry about relocating employees to a company headquarters.

  2. Avoid top-tier salaries required by candidates in big cities. When your talent pool consists of anyone with an internet connection, it’s likely you’ll find a candidate with salary requirements in line with your small business budget.

  3. Boost productivity. Remote work makes it possible for the employee to choose the environment they prefer working in. This might explain why remote workers report they’re substantially more productive than their in-office counterparts.
