By: Jay Allpress, GreatAmerica – Working from home has become the new normal for a large portion of the global workforce. For a number of businesses both big and small, keeping their workforce healthy amidst COVID-19 has spurred their first large-scale venture into remote capabilities. Many business owners are beginning to see the benefits of an approach that provides greater remote flexibility to their employees as an established post-pandemic strategy.
There are certainly many benefits to a remote work scenario – even beyond the protection it can provide from a health pandemic! Hiring remote workers can expand hiring pools beyond your immediate geography, reduce daily commutes, and possibly increase performance and productivity.
