Remote working - good for your employees, good for your business

Our Guide To Building Remote Teams

Benefits for your employees


Significant savings on travel and childcare

Employees need to spend far less on travel and parking. Childcare costs often go down too, particularly for employees with younger children. 


Reduced stress

Cutting out the commute can remove a major source of stress. Some employees also prefer a quieter home-office work space, where it’s easier to avoid office distractions. 


Improved work-life balance

Working from home fits well with family life. It can be great for some employees with mobility issues or other health conditions, too. And less commuting means more time in the day for the fun stuff.  


Save the planet

Working from home means employees can cut their personal carbon footprint – something that is becoming increasingly important to many people.

Benefits for business

Save money

With more of your team working from home, you can shrink your office space – and your office costs. 


Find the talent you need

Advertising a role as remote means you can hire from a much wider talent pool. Reach people living beyond commuting distance of your organisation.


Boost productivity

Research shows remote working can boost productivity and reduce workplace stress. And you won’t loose days to traffic problems or bad weather. Sick days can also be reduced, as employees aren’t bringing minor coughs and colds into work with them.


Build happy teams

Surveys show many people would prefer remote working to a pay rise. Better work-life balance gives you a healthier, happier team.

Cut your carbon footprint

Less commuting will help your company cut its carbon footprint, boosting your green credentials.

Let's work smarter

Many people – including parents, carers and people with disabilities or health conditions – struggle to find suitable work that fits their lives.

In the UK we waste 22 million hours commuting, every day. One quarter of the distance we travel in cars is due to commuting, driving up carbon emissions. Yet we already have the technology to bring work into our homes. Working remotely offers more choice of jobs, to more people: saving time, saving money, reducing stress, and cutting pollution. Let’s make work fairer, greener, and happier – for all of us.
