The Benefits Of Virtual Working

Modern Thinking for the Modern Business

The way we work has changed. The 9 to 5 is increasingly an outdated business model as the benefits of virtual working - for both businesses and clients - are becoming too hard to ignore.

Just a few years ago, it seemed the only people for whom working from home was an option were those who mysteriously claimed to be ‘doing something on the Internet’ or ‘an entrepreneur’. However these not so dim and distant days are now behind us as more and more employers begin to realise the benefits that virtual working can have for their company, their employees and their customers.

The benefits of working virtually

When a company does not have to maintain an office - or they are able to downsize due to employees working remotely - business owners can significantly reduce their operating costs. Assuming they’re one of the good guys, this of course enables them to pass on the savings to their loyal customers!

Benefits for businesses

  • Reduce rental costs by scaling back the size of your office - or closing it altogether
  • Employee work time is maximised by banishing the daily commute
  • Having less equipment running onsite means lower electricity bills...
  • ...and lower electricity usage means you leave a lighter carbon footprint

Benefits for clients
