At Affirmative Portfolios, we firmly believe that hiring remote employees is the easiest way to improve your business. While many employers tend to overlook the benefits of hiring remote workers, simply because they were raised in a time where people woke up, went to work and went home, technology has allowed for many of us to take our work practically anywhere. This makes it beneficial for both the employer and the employee: a real win/win!

5 Reasons to Hire Remote Employees

We can assure you that you will experience many more benefits once you hire your own remote workers. Keep reading the blog to discover 5 good reasons to hire remote employees and why it is such a great option for your business.

1. Remote Workers Tend to Be More Productive

By having employees that are able to work on their own time, skip the stressful commute to and from work every day and reduce the distractions of the working environment and other employees, you are creating relaxed and happier employees who tend to be more productive than full-time employees in the office.

By giving them the option to take breaks when they feel necessary and offering a more flexible and appreciated work schedule, remote employees have shown high levels of self-motivation resulting in higher levels of productivity; this may be due to the reward of freedom that accompanies their work and the familiar working environment of their home or local café.

2. You Have More Options for Employees

When you are hiring an employee to work at you company, you are limiting yourself to only a small pool of potential candidates in the area convenient for commuting daily to your business’ location. By hiring remote employees, you are potentially allowing for more skilled and suitable candidates to apply. Rather than limit your business and prevent greatness, broaden your horizons by venturing outside your area.

3. Reduction in Business Costs

Having many people in one area can be taxing on your wallet. Hiring remote employees allows for you to downgrade dramatically or eliminate a business base all together (depending on the business). Rather spend the money you would be paying towards larger premises on improving and bettering your company. Having less in-house employees will also cut the costs on numerous other expenses, such as stationery, electricity and water- not to mention the staff Christmas party at the end of the year!

4. Happier, Healthier Employees

Productivity is not the only thing you will notice about your remote employees. Employees who do not have to deal with rushed, early mornings, conflicting colleagues and late home arrivals are happier and healthier individuals. Why? Simply because they have more time to do the things they enjoy, such as exercising, spending time with their family and keeping on top of the household chores.

5. Improve Your Company for Your Clients

More productive, happier, healthier employees mean one thing for your business-guaranteed excellence. Businesses with satisfied employees are proven to offer the best possible service for their clients. If your employees are satisfied, their standard of work is above average, and you will be able to offer the best possible service to the public.
