The COVID era came with unprecedented changes to how we see life. Humans had to adjust to wearing a mask in open places, virtual birthday parties and even religious gatherings were not left out. One thing that has come to stay, even as we draw the curtain on the pandemic, is remote work.
Remote work, as we have come to know it, simply means working outside of the designated workspace and with tech, we have several employees working out of a completely different country. Even with the world now fully open, remote work is here to stay. Projections from data scientists at Ladders indicate that by the end of 2022, 25% of professional jobs in North America will be remote and this number will continue to increase through 2023.
It is easy to see why this mode of work is being adopted by companies around the world. Remote work eliminates the cost of renting and maintaining an office space, which is a cost tech startup companies are happy to save on. Productivity numbers are also known to go up with this model of work because the employees are able to work from the comfort of their own spaces and not lose time commuting. It is a win-win situation. An Owl Lab State of Remote Work Report of 2021 showed that 90% of the 2,050 full-time remote workers who took part in the survey said they were more productive working remotely.
Above all of these, one of the most important impacts of remote work on conventional workplaces is the diversity and quality of talent that companies now have access to. With the limitation of having to work from a central location taken out, tech companies can now recruit experienced talent from all over the world. Companies like eSoftresponse offer top-notch remote service on app development services for businesses and brands around the world. There is no limitation to the quality of that service because they operate a remote model with the best of talents from the UK, Nigeria, Philippines and India.
In conclusion, remote work has affected the structure of conventional workspaces in many positive ways. Adjusting to fit this model of work will not only save money but also improve the results they get.
