To capitalize on remote working trends and make working from home feasible and productive, employers are developing remote work rules. Changes in tax jurisdictions, permanent establishment, and immigration issues can
cause a lot of headaches that could have been avoided with a remote work policy. Such a policy ensures that you are not putting yourself or your employees at undue risk.
Cybersecurity in remote work will become increasingly important for companies. When confidential information needs to be accessed remotely, better thought needs to be given to who can access what, where and how.
The fact that these high-level employees are no longer forced to live in the world’s largest cities to find the most competitive jobs in the world is a remote work trend that will likely affect everyone, everywhere. Workers can transfer their skills and money to the smaller cities and
rural areas of the country, bringing prosperity to areas that have had less in the past.
After some reflection, 94% of workers who used to commute are looking for a hybrid work solution where they can work from home at least some days. The 10% of workers who have transitioned to working from home instead of an office have realized the benefits of
their commute and, surprisingly, are 47% more productive than those who operate in an office setting.
Hiring remote workers allows you to choose from a larger pool of candidates than just those who live near your headquarters and can commute to work.
Of course, the preceding arguments result in a plethora of options available to workers. They no longer have to search for the best job in their nearby city, but can search for their dream career anywhere. The ability to hire from anywhere in the world creates an incredible
pool from which an employer can choose – and from which the best employees can be selected.
