It seems as though everywhere we look there’s an article about virtual employees and working remotely. And almost consistently, the opinions are positive and hopeful. Take this article in Forbes for example. It states that by 2016, approximately 63 million Americans will be working as digital employees. That’s about a fifth of the American population working from their homes, coffee shops or even from a different country. If you ask us, working remotely has taken a shift from being a trend to being the new standard.
So why the sudden change? Giving employees the freedom to work when they want, where they want keeps them engaged, efficient and happy. Imagine the productivity we’d see if everyone felt that way about work!
The Forbes article says virtual work has the potential to be world changing. We couldn’t agree more.
