Working remotely is all the rage. Both businesses and employees are experiencing the huge range of benefits that remote work has to offer.
From the business standpoint, companies can save money on office space, have a more focused workforce, experience less employee turnover and contribute to the sustainability of the planet, since people aren’t commuting to the office.
Employees can enjoy an improved work/life balance and be more productive because they have fewer distractions. This can help them accomplish more in a shorter time, experience less stress and be more engaged.
With these perks, it’s no surprise that remote work is catching on. In 2012, 39% of Americans reported that they worked from home at least some of the time. Today, 70% of employees work remotely at least once a week, and 53% are telecommuting at least half of the week.

They enjoy the flexibility of working from home, and we’ve discovered that they are, indeed, more engaged and happier with their jobs. Happy employees = a better company!

Don’t worry if your team members seem to have lost some of their drive; it’s never too late to start cultivating passion in your company. Here are six tips to get you started.
Once again, Thanksgiving is here. It’s a time for hanging out with your family and friends, eating delicious turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce, watching the Macy’s parade and learning about our country’s history.
