Companies of all sizes are embracing remote work because employees want flexibility. While some leaders worry that a remote option will hinder productivity, research has shown that when companies have an effective remote working policy it actually boosts key metrics and employee morale.

However, there are plenty of questions regarding remote work arrangements, ranging from how it compares to flextime to which companies operate a fully distributed workforce. There are many benefits for offering remote working options. From reducing the commute (according to a survey by 2020 FlexJobs) to increasing employee engagement and retention, it’s an excellent option to give employees the flexibility they require.

Flexible work arrangements are when an employee or a team does not report to an office at least for a portion of the time. This can be working from home for a few days of the week or being completely remotely. It could also include working in a satellite office such as a coworking space or cafe, and even employees who travel.

No matter how your company decides to define flexible work it is crucial that managers and leaders provide regular feedback on performance and communication. It’s a good idea, also, to organize regular virtual meetings and standups to foster communication, collaboration and innovation. Don’t forget to congratulate your remote employees whenever they merit it. If your employees aren’t feeling appreciated or aren’t happy Their performance will be affected.
