Building A Remote Workforce
14 Apr 2021
Not everyone can work remotely, but our friends at Golden Shovel have a few pointers for getting the most out of a workforce that can.
Building a remote workforce is key in an age where more and more employees are choosing to work remotely. 2020 changed the perception of remote work for many employers and employees, bringing with it a rise in worker satisfaction, increased productivity, and better mental health for many. The benefits of the environment and housing market are other indicators that remote work is here to stay. As the trend of remote work continues to rise, you may be wondering how to include remote workers in your workforce attraction strategy.
THE REMOTE WORK TREND WILL CONTINUE TO GROW
Remote work has grown 400% in the last decade. 57% of employers are now offering a remote work option. By 2025, an estimated 70% of the workforce will be working remotely to some extent. 9% of adults ages 18-29 are on the move due to COVID, and 22% of adults overall are moving as a result of the virus. Many people are moving to find more space to work from home and others want to get away from congested areas to limit the spread of COVID. Remote work is growing and people are moving. Communities that attract the remote workforce are set to prosper.
