Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the corporate world has relied on remote work to keep operations going, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of remote work.
Amid the coronavirus crisis, the clearing of roadways has also given way to clearer airways, and waterways. Even in Los Angeles, a major city desperate to control pollution, “EPA air quality data shows that the city of Angels experienced its longest stretch of “good” air quality since at least 1995 beginning in early March of this year.” Across the U.S., a report published by Science Daily showed that, “nitrogen dioxide decreased 25.5% during the COVID-19 pandemic compared to historical years, [and] “fine particulate matter declined in urban counties and those instituting early business closures.”
The economic benefits of eliminating work commutes are beginning to show as well, as workers can now save the hundreds, and even thousands, that they spend per year on merely getting to and from work. And there’s an implicit health benefit as well, given that limiting public transportation use has been a notable way of preventing the spread of COVID-19.
But, what’s the best part that can come out of companies permitting more remote work? Increased diversity, more empowered workers, and less costs for the corporation overall.
Overall, remote work has several, undeniable advantages. And with the COVID-19 crisis continuing throughout the country, it is clear that transitioning to remote work will be necessary for all companies, in some capacity.
