Best of Remote Work: Lessons Learned
Let's face it, working all bunched-up together in small cubicles may just be a thing of the past for office workers. Covid brought in a new era of workforce (the remote worker) and legitimized it. Now human resource managers across the country are figuring out how to handle these remote workers post-pandemic.
For some of our clients, moving to a remote workforce proved highly successful. We did it here at Benefits Redesigned. Our lease was $3,500 a month prior to Covid. Now we pay each remote worker a stipend toward their internet, electricity and phone adding up to 14% of our previous office expense.
Do we like remote working? Yes and no. As the owner, it's harder to know what employees are doing throughout the work day – but there are tools to help with that uncertainty. We've also had our share of gaffs -- where the family dog, toddler, cleaning lady and even pest control guy all spilled into the background on webinars.
