THE READY BUSINESS PODCAST: Lose the office - why remote working is the future
Did you know that 91% of workers are more productive when working remotely and by 2020 it is estimated that 60% of the global workforce will be working remotely for part of the week?
Business woman, Vanessa Tierney, has launched a new platform, Aboddo.com, to address the growing needs of employers and employees in Ireland looking for a remote working solution and she joins Brian Purcell on this week’s show to explain why the future of work will be from your home.
“The workplace is transforming and there are some brilliant companies that are leading charge in this revolution,” she explains. “We have spent the last year building www.abodoo.com a free to access platform that is connecting companies with people who want remote careers.”
Brian also finds out how and why Ireland can embrace the growing phenomenon from John Riordan of Shopify which is a 100% remote working company, and Mairead Fleming from Ascension Recruitment.
With a shortage of office space for employers and more and more employees looking for a better work-life balance, the flexibility and freedom that remote working provides might just be the answer for many workers in Ireland in the years to come.
