How remote work is stressing you out

Most professionals already work remotely at least a day every week. While there are certainly benefits, there are also a number of pitfalls.

Remote working is becoming more popular than ever. A study released by the Swiss office provider IWG found that 70% of professionals work remotely at least one day a week, while 53% work remotely for at least half of the week. Some multinationals have their entire staff working remotely, with no fixed office presence at all, which can result in having employees situated all over the world.

Remote work is huge already! And of course there are these companies who are entirely remote – they event don't have an office! (I think @doist and @buffer don't have an office?)

"Nearly 70% of millennials would be more likely to choose an employer who offered remote working"

To find a great talent, you *need* to offer a remote possibility. Not in the future, but already today.

I think the benefits make remote work a no-brainer. For a start, you can hire talent from anywhere in the world instead of your local city.

But the remote culture needs to be done right in the company. One of the main problems is probably being "always on" so that you don't know when you are working and when not. Work and life boundaries are not clear anymore.

I really like how @doist is communicating their clear and organized remote work culture. They even built an app for this – https://twist.com
