Remote staff-members may work from home, from a remote office or from their vehicles at no fixed location. They may work a few miles from your premises or in a country on the other side of the world. Hiring remote employees can be an efficient and cost-effective way to solve problems for small businesses. For many business owners, knowing the benefits of remote hires can open up a variety of benefits, from cost savings to efficiency.
Here is a rundown of hiring remote workers from Berenike Bion. Cost savings. Not having a full team in your headquarters or primary location means saving money on expenses like office space, supplies, heating, and more. Plus operations that have remote staff usually have less turnover, meaning that you save time and money on training and hiring in the long run.
A larger recruiting pool. With remote hires, you won’t be limited to just the talent pool in your geographic area. If you’re able, it’s a good idea to offer benefits aimed at enticing remote workers to want to work for you, such as stipends or reimbursements for home-office expenses. These will give you even more hiring power, and the ability to nab the talent that you want.
Improved tools. If you had a negative or frustrating experience with remote workers in the past, finding that wrangling everyone and organizing meetings was too hard, keep in mind that the technology for conference calls, meetings, and day-to-day communication has improved dramatically. Tools like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Skype are options you might consider for increasing daily conversations and workflow management for team members in any location. Of course, you’ll want to spend some time investigating which will work best for your team.
