What Makes for Successful Flexible Work Arrangements?

2020 will be remembered for a lot of negative reasons, but one of its most defining positives has been the widespread acceptance of working from home. With the pandemic in full swing, many had to abandon their offices and log on from their own residences. At its peak, 42% of Americans were working from home, according to one study. And even once this pandemic has passed, the trend looks set to continue, with large companies such as Twitter and Microsoft already stating that their staff can work from home indefinitely.

For many, working from home has been something of a revelation – no commuting, more flexible hours, a lessened environmental impact, and being able to choose where they work from. All this is made possible thanks to technological advancements, yet again – a perfect marriage of hardware and broadband.

That’s not to say working outside the office doesn’t have its challenges – organising employees who are spread across various locations successfully can certainly present problems. But yet again, our friend technological progress comes to the rescue, this time with remote working software, which can aid in organisation, time management, goal focus and structure.
