Fremont, CA: Any company that intends to allow employees to work anywhere must implement these four major adjustments to its benefits program.

For global firms and corporate employers, remote work is becoming the new normal, with companies all over the world requesting their employees to work from home. Working from home provides various advantages for both organizations and people, including increased productivity and cost savings.

Employees gain from the option to choose when it comes to remote work. Here's how people can better their lives while working from home and still be productive:

Work and live anywhere

Employees can set up shop pretty much anywhere with a WiFi connection as long as they can do their task at the same high-quality level and communicate with their core team as needed.

Accommodate special needs

Employees with physical limitations and mental health issues may benefit greatly from remote work. Not only are employees' residences better suited to help people thrive while working, but they can also provide enough self-care as needed.

Have flexible hours

Working nine to five isn't a viable option for most employees due to varying energy levels, task durations, and personal calendar requirements, including childcare dropoff or fitness & wellbeing days. Remote work enables individuals to remain productive at the hours when they are most creative, allowing them to prepare for the appropriate amount of job time while also accommodating fundamental necessities.

Eliminate or reduce commuting

In 2019, American employees set a new record for commute durations, clocking in at 27 minutes one way. Long commutes are detrimental to everyone involved, including individuals, their families, and perhaps even their businesses. Eliminating this will save each person around nine entire calendar days of traveling or biking back and forth.
