Millions of workers across the UK have delved into the world of remote working for the first time ever, and workplaces will never be the same. Now, the concept of Remotopia is now on the horizon.
Remotopia refers to the idea that remote working will be the norm for workers that are able to get their work done wherever they want. This shift has been slowly occurring for years now, but the pandemic has thrusted it into the spotlight.
As we adjust to this new way of working as a society, workers will have a better grasp on how to remain engaged and connected through various tools and resources. Even home offices will be equipped with ergonomic furniture and natural lighting to allow employees to get their best work done.
Remote working has long been touted for its numerous benefits for both workers and their employers. For instance, flexibility can help eliminate commutes, which means less stress and more time at home, allowing for better mental health.
Additionally, employers are able to access a much wider talent pool when adopting these policies. Instead of limiting their search to just one area, remote working gives them the opportunity to scope the entire world for top talent.
Companies and workers also save money with remote working arrangements without spending money on gas for commutes, lunch and office space costs.
