One thing that seems to be fading away in today’s times is loyalty. Whether it be to a person, or an entity. Loyalty, by definition, is a strong feeling of support, or allegiance. This can be obtained by the employer from the employee through appreciation of workplace flexibility.
One surefire way to achieve loyalty from staff is to make them happy. Happiness can mean many different things to many different people, but in the end, letting someone work from home (in their native habitat) with everything they need around them, will provide comfort, less stress, a sense of empowerment, increase in morale, and so much more.
So what does inspiring loyalty grant the employer?
Workers tend to be grateful and will stick around longer creating a smoother business experience and lower turnover rates which, in turn, decreases training costs.
Productivity is also a byproduct from a happier employee, and that means more work and motivation will be designated to completing tasks.
Another incentive of company loyalty is appreciation. There are circumstances where employees require remote flexibility such as caring for elderly parents, or newly born children. Allowing them to feel appreciated leads to employees working harder.
Empowerment is a great incentive to the employee as well. With control over their own environment they can work in peace and comfort and are free to prosper. They will know who to thank (their employer), and loyalty like this is something that is above today’s standards.
In conclusion, allowing your staff to work from home creates loyalty and is the smart thing to do. Everyone wins! As an employer, you will also increase employee morale and with that comes a better, more productive, smart way to do business. Working remotely is where the world is headed, and the desire is there. With such an overwhelming crowd desperately trying to work from home, you can pick the best of the best.
