We’re always talking about the benefits of hiring remote workers for your business. Employees are certainly in agreement with the advantages of working from home, as they have better control over their activities. A Stanford University study found that attrition rates amongst home workers dropped by 50%, while Harvard Business Review published an article on the results of a similar study, which found that home workers completed 13.5% more calls than office staff. It is thought that the flexibility of being at home if you have kids and other commitments outside of work, makes life easier for remote workers, and those very commitments inspire them to do more, quicker. Another contributing factor to the increased productivity, could be the quieter environment in which to make calls and do work that demands silence.
