With many small businesses and accounting professionals experiencing snow, bitter cold, and high winds this month, it’s a great time to explore the benefits of working remotely. Here are the top 5 reasons to work remotely this winter.
Save time by avoiding the commute
If you do the books for one or more small businesses you need to maximize the amount of time you have to do productive, useful work. If you’re running a business, you know how few hours there are in the day. By working remotely, you can save time spent on a long commute, and avoid the extreme weather situations and everyday traffic jams that make commuting difficult. With the time you recoup, you can focus on new offerings and services – and growth!
Be more efficient
The phone rings… someone stops by your desk… if you are currently working in a small business office you know how much there can be going on all at once. Remote workers have fewer distractions and less down-time. That means more projects completed faster, and more efficiency for your business.
Stay germ free
Winter is the classic time of year when someone coughs, someone sneezes and then suddenly the whole office is sick. Want to avoid the sick time? Work remotely this winter and watch the sick days plummet.
Maintain balance by changing up the scenery
Remote work is truly remote — you can work from a home office, a coffee shop, or even an outdoor park. Some remote workers elect to use their freedom to travel the country or the world. These professionals experience and learn about different cultures via immersion. And, in the coldest parts of winter, why not try working from the beach?
Everyone is doing it
The majority of Right Networks customers work remotely at least a few times a month and many work remotely every day. Why not join the club and equip your team to do their best work from anywhere? Throw out those winter boots and opt in to sandals!
