The key to increasing productivity among remote workspaces
Millennials have redefined the meaning of collaboration in today’s age. Freelancing and remote working are a big part of this generation’s means of work, so ensuring you have the right software tools to reach full productivity, while offering a work-life balance, is key to retaining talent.
Many traditional offices offer various amenities to increase company morale and productivity such as balanced desk design; an office environment with plentiful lighting; an opportunity to personalize workstations; a positive, collaborative work culture; and quality software tools.
Remote working is much different, in that a worker’s office might be their homes or a beach house which already gives the employee control over their environment and preferred design.
