Remote work is a dream for many but convincing your boss you should work remotely might not be. To make it easier, we’ve put together a list of the key benefits for both you and your employer in addition to our helpful Resources page.

Here’s some top reasons, to get you kicking your daily commute to the curb: 

  • Remote workers are 20% more productive

    • Employees that work remotely are twice as likely to work more than 40 hours a week on important tasks
  • Remote work saves your company big bucks

    • Office space is expensive, as are office supplies, equipment and events
    • More than half of professionals have left a company or considered leaving because it lacked flexibility
  •  Flexibility creates more loyal employees

    • Loyalty means higher productivity and decreased turnover (more $$ savings)
  • Remote workers are healthier and happier

    • Healthier employees are more productive employees
    • Remote workers take less sick and personal days
    • The average commute is half hour, which is about the same time it takes people to run three miles
  •  Inspired and refreshed by a change of scenery and adventure

    • Being away from the office, especially in a new city, allows for fresh perspectives, increased creativity, new ideas and new experiences

To help sell your boss on the idea, suggest trying a remote work month during a slow period at the office.
