Roundup No. 18: Remote Work Benefits

R

Welcome back to another Weekly Roundup, Remote Work Tribe! We hope you’ve been having a stellar October. With various areas of the country getting hit with some rough weather these past few days (torrential rain, a snowstorm, and wildfires, anyone?), there’s never been a better time to work from the comfort of your own home. In fact, we’ve been using this entire month to reflect on the various remote work benefits our lifestyle brings.

Of course, seeking shelter warm at home while the world outside is cold and wet sounds like an obvious benefit. But aside from comfort and flexibility, there are a ton of remote work benefits not everyone in the remote workforce saw coming pre-pandemic. 

Consider this thread by Firstbase Founder and CEO Chris Herd.

Chris hits an enormous amount of nails on the head, specifically the remote work benefits we may have not anticipated when we all embarked on this lifestyle.

From receiving more individualized attention to more hours of sleep each night, a remote work lifestyle helps each employee perform to the best of their ability. Plus, with less distractions at home, most of us are also experiencing a streamlined workflow and improved concentration.
