Why Flexible Work Increases Productivity
Is it true that working from home, working while traveling, or coming into a coworking space can make you more productive than your 9-to-5 counterparts? It’s a question many traditional work establishments are considering today.
A recent Clutch study looked a working remotely versus working in an office. It discovered that flexible work options achieved a 13.5% higher efficiency during the work-week. In short, allowing workers to work from where they want made them more productive at their job.
That’s not all that’s been uncovered in recent studies and surveys on the topic of remote and coworking arrangements. Beyond the flexibility and higher productivity, it has also been found that 26% of employees who have some degree of flexibility say a better work-life balance is the top benefit of working outside of the office.
In that same survey, 21% listed the flexible work hours as their top priority, followed by 18% citing fewer distractions.
Being able to control WHERE you work, WHEN you work, and HOW you work can make you more productive, make work more enjoyable, and help achieve a work-life balance that makes you more passionate about your work. It’s a win-win, and it starts with a commitment to working with flexibility.
