“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.” – Charles Darwin

Take a look around: The business landscape is a lot more flexible today than it was a decade ago. Now, at least 50 percent of the U.S. workforce now holds a job that is compatible with at least partial telework. And 80 to 90 percent of the workforce wants to operate remotely.

So, is it time to follow the trend and embrace a digital workforce? If you want to be seen as an innovative and worker-friendly company, the answer should be yes. You don’t want to be the last company in your industry to make the change…

Plus, it’s hard to ignore the benefits for your company:

Cost savings: By enabling a digital workforce and giving employees the chance to work remotely, you can consolidate or even close your brick and mortar offices by making them entirely Web-based.  By doing this, you can save money on overhead like floor space, utilities and other daily expenses. Just think of the money you’ll save on Keurig supplies alone…

Higher employee retention: As remote work becomes more popular in the coming years, it will become a top demand for employees. Many will jump ship for better offers that include remote work opportunities if you don’t start to offer them.

Higher employee productivity: 91 percent of those surveyed say they are more productive when working remotely.

Increased revenue: It’s simple, but true: Happier and more productive workers will yield stronger returns for your company.  Workers who are happier and more adjusted will work harder, and some for longer hours. Customer service will naturally improve, too.
