Having a workforce that can work remotely from any corner of the world, especially during these times of a pandemic, can present challenges, but at the same time this arrangement can offer flexibility and numerous other benefits to companies. Outsourcing has never been easier or more readily available to help your business grow.
Whilst it may be difficult to arrange meetings at reasonable times or catch certain coworkers online when you’d like to ask a quick question, there are also perks that come from having multiple time zones covered, one of which is capacity for international growth. Having employees available in different regions can help alleviate any time zone differences you may face with customers or clients, leading to customer retention and growing your business internationally. Here at VS Integracija in Belgrade, we start work 6 hours before New York and 1 hour before London, completing any tasks waiting for us and getting ahead for the day.
Work Life Balance
As we’re discovering, employees enjoy flexibility and having the choice to be able to work from home. Maybe they want to try living in a new place for a couple months or want to take a longer, more flexible, vacation, taking fewer days off. Giving employees these flexible benefits can lead to better job satisfaction, thereby reducing employee turnover.
Geographical diversity also gives employees to grow their networks, further increasing job satisfaction. No longer do they just get to meet people living and working in the same city, they’re now exposed to multiple cultures and personalities from all over the world. Social connection and networks are a huge motivator for all of us, and growing networks can open many doors professionally, leading to employee development and retention. This is particularly evident though the burgeoning ‘digital nomad’ culture. Our team at VS Integracija is spread across the world, from Europe to North America to South America, giving us insights into different cultures, traditions, personalities, and most importantly all the things that link us all together.
Though not without its challenges, a global workforce can present many benefits. As our world grows seemingly smaller with advancements in technology, we can open ourselves to an even more diverse workforce and to opportunities all over the world, cutting back on costs such as rent, whilst at the same time increasing employee satisfaction and productivity.
