This post from Harvard Business Review beautifully illustrates the benefits of allowing employees to work remotely:
- The company benefits. Removing location as a limiting factor offers organizations access to (literally) all the talent in the world.
- Hiring managers benefit because they have an opportunity to create diverse teams. For instance, it’s widely accepted that people who come together from different backgrounds bring new information and diverse perspectives.
- Individual employees benefit, because they can live where they want, close to family or perhaps in a place that has the type of climate they prefer.
