Work from Home is Here to Stay
Many companies have had some kind of work from home policy in place for years before the coronavirus pandemic forced everyone’s hands. For those who were on the fence before COVID-19 took over the world, they’ve been launched into an experimental phase to see just how efficient and productive their workforce can be from the comfort of their own homes.
For those who embraced telecommuting in some way, shape or form, it is business as usual.
No matter your company’s policy on working from home before the coronavirus pandemic, you’re bound to see plenty of benefits from this setup as we collectively do our best to flatten the curve and stay safe:
- Access to a nationwide or worldwide labor pool – Soon enough, your company will need to make hiring decisions. After successfully navigating a work-from-home environment, you won’t be limited to candidates within your town or region. Candidates with the skills you seek can apply for positions with your company no matter where they’re based.
- Managing labor costs – Unfortunately, you may see a dip in business during the coronavirus pandemic, and you may need to make difficult staffing decisions as a result. However, that means you’ll find out just how efficient you can be with the employees you have and where you should ramp up once the economy bounces back.
- More integration – One would think having your staff distributed throughout the world lead to a lack of connectivity between employees. That doesn’t need to be the case. Having employees far from HQ means you’ll need to be in constant communication to ensure clients are being served and deadlines are being met. On the flip side, it also gives employees the autonomy to accomplish what they need to get done without distractions and move on to the next task quicker – especially once school is back in session!
