Remote jobs might be in danger of reverting back into their more traditional, in-person models around the world, but some UK companies are standing by the benefits remote working has delivered for their teams. 

Remote Worker CEO Joseph Boll said the fact that so many organisations are deciding to continue with remote or flexible options shows the viability of this modern way of working. 

“We have continued to vouch for the many benefits of remote work,” Boll said.

“Businesses large and small can absolutely thrive in this model. 

“And it’s not just businesses but employees who work remotely who all say they love the same things about remote work, showing the benefits aren’t just one-sided but something the entire organisation can take advantage of.

“That’s a tremendous accomplishment and we hope to see more businesses embracing remote and flexible work well into the future.”

Remote Worker is one of the leading recruitment services in the UK, specifically geared towards connecting jobseekers with the best possible remote jobs. 

Several small business owners spoke with Remote Worker recently, providing testimonies on how their offices fared with the transition to work from home. 

Ana Andres, co-founder of TidyChoice, said her team has been working remotely for two years now and has found it extremely beneficial for getting the job done. 

“We’ve learned many lessons along the way about what makes remote work successful and what doesn’t — as well as how to overcome the challenges of being distributed across multiple time zones and cultures,” Andres told Remote Worker. 

“We found that remote working has a positive impact on productivity, employee retention and workplace culture… 

“It allows everyone to be more flexible and gives you the ability to get your job done without having to be at an office.”

Louis John, of What’s Good Online UK, felt the same way. 

“We have embraced working full-time from home and it has been a good experience for all of us,” John said.

“I don’t think we are going back to in-office arrangements any soon. 

“Working remotely allows us to be flexible in creating our own schedules.”

He added, “We found that maintaining just the right amount of communication leads to more initiative, innovation, and engagement among the employees.”

Absolute Digital Media Founder and CEO Ben Austin said his company has gone fully remote since the start of the pandemic, and has found ways to turn initial challenges into positives for the whole team. 

“The decision to work remotely was made by our team,” said Austin. “We asked if they wanted to stay remote and they all agreed.”

He added, “Here at Absolute Digital Media, maintaining company culture in a remote company was a challenge. 

“We are fully remote, and we do believe that this is more convenient for everyone involved.”

Tracy Acker, CEO and recruiter at UK online loan broker GetPaydayLoan, said her team of nine have been working remotely since the company was first launched. 

“I realized that my employees adopted remote working immediately after setting up the firm,” she told Remote Worker.  

“Most of them are happy working remotely, and sometimes they come to the office to socialize.”

Acker said she and her team alike love the flexibility of working from home, which allows them to focus more clearly on performing their best on the job.

Boll noted, “This is just a fraction of the kind of feedback we’ve been receiving from jobseekers and employers alike in providing the key reasons why remote work has become a permanent feature for them.”
