COVID-19 has caused serious disruption to almost every SME in every market space. Indeed, most countries including the Philippines have already begun mandating that non-essential business should close their doors. While the term ‘non-essential’ may be true to others, it’s hardly a description you’re likely to use about the company you work for. For the foreseeable future, Telecommute or remote working is going to be the new normal.

You can reduce the office costs by limiting space and furniture requirements, which is a good way of reducing overall costs. The extra space can be used for other organizational purposes. You can even rent the space to someone else. Telecommute will reduce your total cost of doing business by almost 30%.

Wider Pool of Talent

By embracing the flexible work arrangement such as telecommuting in your business, you can hire only the best and most talented employees without limiting yourself to geographical location.

Increased Productivity

employees tend to be more productive when they are working from home than when they are in an office setting. While working from home, employees concentrate more on their job as there are few interruptions. Moreover, working from home allows employees to work on a schedule that reflects their lifestyle. In the end, they can perform better than they would while working full time in an office.
