5 Reasons to Allow Your Staff to Work From Home

Aug 16, 2019

At PCM UK we recognise that our employees want the flexibility to work outside of the traditional nine-to-five setup and as a result, many of our staff have chosen to work from home for part of their working week. What are the main business benefits of allowing your staff to work from home?


Staff satisfaction

Our employees were able to improve their work-life balance by spending less time travelling to the office on a daily basis, allowing them to spend more time with their family and save money on commuting costs.


Staff efficiency

81% of office workers report that noise and interruptions are the biggest barriers to concentration. Put simply, some people can focus better at home where there is less distraction.


Save costs

By introducing hot-desking your organisation could save on office space as well as the expenses of travelling, not to mention lost productivity! We have recently introduced hot-desking in our Hamilton HQ and it’s been a great success.


Make better use of collaboration technology

Solutions such as Jabber, WebEx, AnyConnect and Spark help our staff work efficiently, with quick and reliable access to colleagues even when they are away from the office.


Team development

Research by Powownow suggests that 70% of millennials say that the option of working flexibly would make a job more attractive to them. Our flexible working policy allows us to attract and retain the best talent, no matter where they are located.


Evolving technology has a huge part to play in shaping the remote workforce. At PCM UK we use a range of communications solutions that really help our employees maximise their productivity when working from home and collaborating remotely with colleagues. If you would like to find out more about the technology that is enabling remote working, get in touch with PCM UK today: ukinfo@pcm.com or 0800 069 8512.
