At the outset, the Alliance’s goal was to build a

Advice for Remote Work

Is Your Business Prepared for a Remote Workforce? Today’s workforce looks vastly different from that of just a decade ago. More companies are not only allowing employees to work from home, but they are encouraging it. In a recent report by FlexJobs and Global Workplace Analytics, remote work was found to have increased by 44 percent over the last five years and 91 percent in the past decade. Today, 4.7 million people, 3.4 percent of the U.S. population, now work from home. A FlexJob survey discovered that 74 percent of respondents believe flexible working has “become the new normal.”

Successful team

When you think of “team-building activities” you likely picture trust falls, cheesy motivational speeches and forced participation in boring office games. While developing teamwork and improving office camaraderie is important, the team will only improve if its members actually enjoy the activities. If everyone’s miserable, no one is going to take anything away from the exercise. Instead of trying to bring everyone together through trust falls, try injecting a bit more fun into your activities. Not only will they bring your team members closer together, but they may even help them to work more efficiently as a unit as well.

Though not every company allows it, there are distinct benefits to working remotely. Remote employees are often more productive, have higher degrees of job satisfaction and may be more likely to come up with unique solutions to problems. There are benefits for companies as well, since companies that hire remote workers have access to a larger talent pool than what they would find only hiring those who live nearby. If your company hires remote workers, it’s important that you find individuals who are well suited to working remotely. This can sometimes be difficult, as people who can’t handle the unique

Some people see working from home as a dream come true, imagining days spent working in pajamas and only tackling tasks when they feel like it. The reality of working remotely is a bit different, of course. While you do have more control over your schedule, you still have deadlines and responsibilities along with a wide range of distractions that you never run into while at the office. This isn’t to say that working remotely can’t be a rewarding experience, however. It’s not for everyone, but for those who do thrive in a remote work environment, it can result in

Business owners often develop a number of habits as a result of how they run their businesses. Some of these habits are good, helping them to drive the company forward and ensure that everything keeps running smoothly. Other habits aren’t so good, however, and can actually start to hinder the growth of a company over time. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between the two types of habits. Some bad habits can actually result in short-term gains, which is part of the reason that they become so common. To prevent your bad business habits from dragging your

There’s been a major trend in recent years for companies to allow some or all of their employees to work remotely. There are a variety of reasons why a company might let its employees telecommute; not only can the practice save money for both the company and the employee, but it also improves employee morale and may even increase overall productivity. It seems like a win-win situation, so it’s no wonder that some of the largest companies in the world have been leading the remote working revolution. The only problem is that some of these same companies have started winding
