An innovative way of working and living

SUMMARY

This report is focused on remote work in IT companies, which is experiencing a significant increase due to the coronavirus crisis. The research's goal is to take a look at how remote work companies operate and analyze the pros and cos that home office offers compared to conventional firms.

The paper goes more in-depth and poses the question of whether remote work is just an organizational working method or it could actually go beyond that and become a lifestyle option.

With regards to productivity, among this document's findings is that more than three out of four employees who work remotely have reported more productivity than professionals who work in conventional work environments. The paper highlights that remote companies do not have pay for offices so they have the option of recruiting more employees with the cash saved on office space, which is among its main advantages.

Communication is crucial when organizing projects but also for employees to follow the business flow. For completely remote-companies, missing the flow and the general status of projects can be a risk that should be carefully considered by management. For that reason, it is particularly important that remote companies count on an adequate communication system where all employees are aware of what others are working on. Disciple, organization, and politeness are key skills to have when working for a remote company to show empathy for clients and other co-workers.
