Remote work offers great advantages for those who find it appealing. Here are some reasons why remote work is the bomb (in our humble, Y2K-laced opinion, of course).
- Ditch the Commute! Since transitioning to remote work, I’ve found that one of the things I miss least is the daily commute in my car, stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. If you were to calculate the amount of time, energy, and money you spend commuting to and from work, you might just find that joining us on the remote work side could be a game-changer!
- Increased Productivity I’ve heard from several remote workers that they experience greater productivity when working from home. They say that there are fewer interruptions and distractions. Personally, I’ve adopted a technique called time-blocking to help me stay focused on my projects and tasks. It involves setting aside dedicated periods of time for specific tasks and silencing message alerts during those periods. This has been a game-changer for me!
- A Healthier Work-Life Balance At Order Desk, we value the flexibility that comes with remote work, allowing you to run errands, attend mid-day appointments, or attend your child’s school events without sacrificing work time. We also understand the importance of taking mental health breaks when needed, so don’t hesitate to take time for yourself when necessary.
- Work From Anywhere…in the World (at least with us you can!) Imagine having the freedom to work from a co-working space, your cozy home office, or even your favorite coffee shop! With remote work, the world is your oyster, allowing you the flexibility to work from anywhere you desire. You could take an extended trip to another city or country and work from there, or even become a digital nomad and work from various countries!
- Work Within a Diverse Community At Order Desk, we believe in sourcing talent from all over the world, creating a diverse, dynamic team that spans nearly every continent. Working with individuals from all walks of life, each with their own unique background, culture, and accent, has been an incredible opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the world around us. Our team is constantly learning from one another, sharing stories, and building strong connections that transcend borders. With remote work, the possibilities are truly endless – you could be working with someone from across the world, without ever leaving the comfort of your own home!
I am truly passionate about the topic of remote work and could easily list 95 more reasons why it is such a game-changer. However, rather than bore you with a not-so-mini thesis, for your sake, I will exercise restraint and end here. Suffice it to say that we at Order Desk have been working remotely since the very beginning, and it has proven to be an incredibly effective model. By sourcing talent from all over the world, we are able to build a team of the very best individuals, regardless of their location.
