Remote workers are on the rise in many modern workplaces. The changing culture and daily work habits that our society has acquired over the past decade contribute largely to this increase.
Lauren, the Senior Account Executive at OpenSesame, is a full-time employee who has been working remotely for the past fifteen years. “I have my own office in the house with a desk, printer, and computer,” she states, all things you would find in a traditional office space. Work doesn’t always have to happen in a traditional office space. Working from home eliminates all of the daily distractions in a workplace, such as chatter, visitors, phone calls, etc., and allows you to focus on your job.
Some people may believe that remote meetings are counter-productive but sometimes, virtual space meetings can be more efficient. Because of time differences and location, we make sure that meetings are concise, unlike some traditional meetings that tend to drag on and on. Although technical difficulties do exist, Lauren has said that she experienced very few issues that would impede on her productivity.
