Whether working from a physical office or a virtual workplace, productivity has been proven to stay the same. So why hire remotely? A Stanford University study has shown that companies can save up to $2000 per employee by hiring remote workers. But there is another element at play: employee happiness. A recent Gallup poll shows that employees who spend at least some of their time working remotely are more likely to be engaged in their jobs. And it has been consistently proven that employee engagement should be at the top of any company’s list if they want to increase profits.
