The home office is this incredible trend through which employees can now be working from our homes in the same way as being in the office and even with greater productivity. The home office in addition to being one of the forms of work that millennials demand the most today, it is also one of the ways that Entrepreneur magazine recommends in order to retain talent within an organization.
What is very interesting is that many times we see the home office as a benefit that only impacts employees, but the reality is that it is a dynamic that positively impacts both the environment and the company itself, and not only for talent retention.
In Mexico, at the beginning of October, deputy Lyndiana Bugarín, from the Green Ecologist Party of Mexico, proposed establishing staggered entry and exit schedules, as well as making home office mandatory once a week, with the aim of reducing emissions of carbon generated by traffic in the City.
The home office generates impacts for you as a company and for the whole world, for this reason we share 5 benefits of this trend:
- Reduction in traffic, travel time and pollution
In Mexico City the average speed by car is 17 kilometers per hour, but a road congestion reduces it to only 4. And when a vehicle is trapped in traffic, emissions increase up to by 79%, according to SEMARNAT data. On the other hand, by implementing the home office, your employees will be able to get to work on time without excuses and without the stress generated by being trapped for hours in traffic.
- You can hire the best employees
Becoming a company that operates with a culture of telepresence and home office, gives you the opportunity to hire staff not only in your area but also abroad. This will give you the opportunity to always hire the best no matter where they are.
- You will save on office supplies, electricity, water, etc.
Your employees cost you more than their salary, there are many indirect costs that are necessary to maintain your employees such as electricity, water, the amount of paper and office supplies they use. If your employees work from home, these expenses are considerably reduced.
- You will become a talent magnet.
If you are one of the first to implement home office, you will make all the employees of the competition begin to see you, generating even jealousy of your corporate culture and a place where more and more people would like to work.
- Your employees will love you
Ultimately, your employees will benefit the most and, therefore, the company as well. With home office schemes your employees will become more loyal and productive, the problem of training personnel who later choose to work elsewhere will be reduced to the maximum because they will not find a better place to work than yours.
