Why work from home? Greg Hanover, Vice President of LiveOps Community Operations, has a few good reasons for you to consider.
Ovum, a respected global analyst, recently predicted the work at home agent community will reach 160,000 individuals globally by 2017, representing 18% growth year over year. When I look at how fast the work from home community is projected to grow, the only question I have is why aren't the projections higher? It's no secret that there are numerous benefits for both individuals and companies who embrace working from home. Here are a few I'd like to note.
Simply put, the work from home model provides a level of flexibility that especially important for those not able to physically show up at a place of business. We hear on a regular basis that LiveOps provides many people with a unique opportunity that isn't possible elsewhere.
The work from home model can help people achieve a better work-life balance and has been proven to drive higher worker satisfaction and productivity. Working from home allows individuals to take control of their work schedule to accommodate their personal needs and be more productive.
As a result of driving higher worker satisfaction, many enterprises are seeing higher retention rates. Not only does this allow them to keep top talent but it also provides a significant cost savings for sourcing and recruiting, which leads to my next point.
Companies are able to truly attract top talent with limited or no geographic restrictions, while individuals are able to work for companies that would otherwise be too far away. This is especially attractive to people in rural areas or anyone who hates a long commute.
Last, and certainly not least, is the positive impact from an environmental standpoint. As companies and individuals take more responsibility and place emphasis on reducing their carbon footprint, the work-from-home model allows both sides to be a more responsible partner to the environment.
LiveOps gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the all benefits listed above. You can build your business in a way that meets your needs and provides the work-life balance that you deserve.
If you're already taking advantage of all our model has to offer, great! If not, I encourage you to ask yourself: Why wouldn't I want to be part of a community that allows me to control my destiny?
