Tips For Managing Remote Employees Across Multiple Locations

Αccording to the Global Workplace Analytics, 50% of the global workforce engage in telecommuting and 80-90% of all employees desire to work remote on a full time or part-time basis. With the millennials making up a significant part of the workforce, working from home seems to be the most effective way of luring this job group into attractive positions.

More companies have adopted the practice over the last five or so years, citing that employees are more productive and can attain a healthy work-life balance.
