While some leaders worry that remote work will affect productivity, research suggests that when businesses have an effective policy of remote working it can boost key metrics and employee morale.

There are many questions about remote working, including how it compares to the flexibility of flextime to whether businesses have a fully distributed workforce. There are many benefits of offering remote work options. From reducing the commute (according to a survey by 2020 FlexJobs) and enhancing employee engagement and retention, it’s an excellent option to give employees the flexibility they desire.

Flexible work arrangements occur the situation where an employee or group does not have to report to a physical workplace at least for a portion of the time. It could be working at home for a couple of days a week or working completely remotely. It could also include working from a satellite office, like a coworking area or cafe, or working from a mobile workforce.

Whatever your company’s policy decides to define flexible work, it is important that leaders and managers give regular feedback about performance and communication. It’s also recommended to arrange regular standups and meetings via virtual means to foster collaboration, innovation and communication. Don’t forget congratulating your remote team members whenever they deserve it. If your employees are not inspired or feel unappreciated, their performance will be affected.
