It is now over a year since I started working for Particular Software as a Solution Architect. I work 100% remote, and I enjoy it. In fact, I even believe that remote working should be the new business imperative in the Software Industry. Many employees like me, like working without walls! The top ten benefits of remote working, according to a Microsoft study and quoted by Kevin Kruse on Forbes, are:
10) Environmentally friendly (23%)
9) More time with family (29%)
8) Less stressful environment (38%)
7) Quieter atmosphere (43%)
6) Eliminate long commute (44%)
5) Less distractions (44%)
4) More productive (45%)
3) Avoid traffic (47%)
2) Save gas (55%)
1) Work/home balance (60%)
I experience these and more benefits day-by-day while remote working. I’ll explore the topics of remote working a bit more on this blog in upcoming posts.
To quote Szymon Kulec, one of my remote-workmates:
Working remotely, not to mention working for Particular Software, is a life changer. I think that aftera months I won’t be able to go back. On the other hand, why would I even consider going back at all?
Happy remote working and reading ;).
