The enormous increase in remote work during the pandemic was an immediate response to a temporary public health emergency, but a large number of our local businesses have allowed the majority of their employees to telecommute after the pandemic. This is a good thing.

A solid policy for remote work is an essential option for companies and organizations which value employee engagement. If employees feel loved and appreciated, they are more likely to support the company’s goals. Furthermore, the ability to telecommute during times of emergencies, shutdowns, or disasters allows for business continuity.

In addition to its flexibility and productivity advantages, offering remote work options can help companies retain and attract top talent. Research shows that businesses that offer flexible schedules have lower turnover rates and higher levels of engagement than those that don’t. It also allows organizations to save money on overhead expenses through reducing expenses for real estate, utilities and office equipment.
