The Top Benefits of Working Remotely

When COVID-19 forced businesses across the globe to send employees home to work virtually, remote work had its “moment.” While the rush to provide workers with what they needed to work from home was sudden for many employers, most people settled in quickly, and one thing was clear – employees could remain focused and productive working remotely. Today, the prevalence and availability of remote work are growing thanks to so many people realizing the benefits it offers. It has even led to the emergence of the hybrid workplace, which combines in-office and remote work. Learn the top benefits of working remotely (for employees and businesses) below.


Improved Work-Life Balance

Most remote jobs are combined with flexible schedules. This allows workers to start and end their day based on their needs if the work is done. This results in better outcomes for most businesses. The control workers have over their schedules is invaluable when it comes to accommodating their personal life needs. The improved work-life balance is something that benefits everyone involved in the remote work arrangement.


Reduced Commute Stress

The one-way commuting time in the U.S. is approximately 27.1 minutes. That means workers spend almost an hour getting to and from work every day. This really adds up. In fact, commuters are spending about 100 hours commuting and 41 hours in traffic every year. Commuters with a longer trip face much longer times, including commute times of 90 minutes or more one way.

However, wasting time commuting is just one of the downsides of getting to and from work. It’s been found that over 30 minutes of commuting each day in one-way commuting is related to increased anxiety and stress levels. Individuals who must commute 10 miles (or more) to work every day also have a higher likelihood of developing health conditions like depression, increased blood sugar, and higher cholesterol.Eliminating the community helps support workers’ physical and mental health. The time saved also allows them to focus on priorities beyond work, such as getting more sleep in the morning, taking time with family, eating breakfast, and working out.


Location Independence 

Another benefit offered by working from home is having access to more job opportunities that are not limited by a person’s geographic location. This is especially beneficial for those who live in a rural community or small town where local positions may not be available. With no set job location, fully remote workers can also live and travel as digital nomads and enjoy a meaningful career. Even individuals who must regularly move, such as military spouses, can benefit from remote work that can be done from any location without starting over completely.


Improved Inclusivity 

Remote work opportunities allow companies to embrace inclusion and diversity by hiring individuals from different cultural, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds with varied perspectives. This is often difficult to accomplish when recruiting is restricted to just one locale, especially if it is one many people don’t want to live in. By hiring workers who can work from home where they live, companies support family, community, and diversity. Remote work opportunities give those who may find it hard to find steady employment at an on-site job, such as caregivers or those with disabilities, the ability to achieve their career goals without worrying about commuting. It also provides workers with more flexibility to handle healthcare needs, like appointments, as needed.


Save Money

People working from home can save approximately $4,000 each year. Things like a professional wardrobe, gas, parking, lunches and car maintenance are reduced or eliminated when working remotely. This results in employees keeping more of the money they earn.


Working remotely offers more than a few benefits for workers and businesses. Today, it is something that is offered by many companies because of all the benefits mentioned here, among others. Keep the information above in mind to decide if working remotely is right for you or your company.
