Benefits of Working Remotely
The benefits are evident. You can simply grab your computer and work from the local coffee shop or the other side of the world, allowing you to move, travel, explore, and enjoy life all over the globe, as long as you remain responsible.
Remote working isn't for everyone or every company. Offering remote work with a 9-5 schedule essentially means providing the option to work from a local coffee shop, which isn't quite the goal. As a company, we had to become as agile as possible.
As an individual seeking a remote job, you must be well-organized, disciplined, and able to resist the temptations that traveling or living abroad presents. With great freedom comes even greater responsibility, and you need to be aware of that. It's all fun and games, but if the job isn't completed, there's no point in having you.
- The company needs to be agile in scheduling
- The employee needs to be highly responsible and reliable
