Working from Home Is the Way of the Future; Strengthen Your Professional Potential Now

Workplace flexibility is an enduring trend. Following the pandemic, many organizations, including Works, have adopted a remote-first approach, capitalizing on the benefits of teleworking in terms of both lifestyle and productivity.

At Work, we believe that employees should have the autonomy to create their own work-life balance and ideal workplace, regardless of their location. We are a remote-first organization, so your workplace is wherever you are most productive.

On 29th June, the global community celebrated National Work From Home Day, recognizing the modern workplace and its increased prevalence of remote and flexible employment opportunities. This shift in focus from traditional working hours and physical locations to professional development is indicative of the future of work.

The emergence of Working from Home (WFH) has created an opportunity for individuals to exercise greater control over their professional and personal lives. This requires a certain level of self-management and personal accountability that was not previously required. The growing trend of telecommuting amongst tech companies has opened up a range of possibilities for tech workers to shape their own careers.

Okay, but why should you WFH? Explore the ways in which working from home might boost your professional prospects.

  • It’s possible to do remote work for a multinational corporation:

    With the growth of remote working, it is now possible to access senior-level positions in a range of locations without having to relocate. This opens up a wealth of opportunities for technicians and businesses alike, allowing for a greater variety of perspectives and experiences and the chance to utilise the expertise of employees from around the world. This is a beneficial situation for both parties, providing increased flexibility and access to higher-paying roles.
  • Your schedule at work is entirely up to you:

    Do you find it more productive to complete tasks in the morning and schedule meetings for the afternoon? Would you rather have your meetings done before continuing with other duties, or would you prefer to do the opposite? Remote employment offers you the freedom to arrange your work schedule around other commitments.
  • Get more done with less time spent commuting:

    Working remotely offers several advantages, such as financial savings on transport costs and time saved in commuting, as well as improved health benefits such as reduced stress and more sleep time. Furthermore, depending on the region you are in, you may also be eligible for better medical coverage as an employee of Worksn. Additionally, you can set your own hours as a remote worker, allowing you to be more productive and get ahead on assignments. Therefore, why spend two hours a day travelling to and from an office when you can work from the comfort of your own home or any other remote location?
