What are Remote Employees?
A remote employee does not go into a designated office every day and generally works either from home or a remote location away from the normal office.
The reason? Mostly cost. For many businesses, there is a cost of desk to take into account, and if the tasks pertaining to an employee doesn’t require that they be at the office, a remote situation can be more cost-effective.
An article from Forbes highlights that because almost 50% of the workforce works in telecommunication and another 85% have said they would prefer to work remotely. This means remote working is an attractive benefit to offer staff.
But, are they still part of the main office?
