Remote work in the IT industry - what are the benefits for the employer?

Over the past few years, remote work has gained great popularity. Thanks to this, employees can work in a mode that suits them, while performing their duties faster and better. The flexibility offered by remote work is so attractive that often specialists decide to change jobs to choose better-suited conditions.

However, the remote mode has many advantages not only for employees. Businesses can also profit by hiring remotely.


Remote work shows the employer's confidence, thanks to which employees feel more confident about what they are doing. In addition, working outside the office, the employees have the opportunity to organize their work and environment in a way that suits them best, thereby minimizing the number of things that will distract them.

Work in the office naturally creates small situations that interfere with smooth work, such as coffee breaks, meetings and consultations lasting several minutes. Teamwork is common in the IT industry, so sometimes an employee can spend even a whole day participating in "meetings" without completing any task. Research indicates that remote employees are up to 40% more productive than their colleagues who are in the office every day.

Employees retention

The financial aspect accounts for only a quarter of the reasons for changing jobs. Much more often employees focus on what they can gain from employment in a new company, including more responsibility, better working conditions or flexibility of working hours. In today's world, the opportunity to work remotely may be crucial for people who prefer to work at other times than the standard 9-to-5. Because of this, they are able to retain employees and reduce turnover by offering benefits in the form of remote work.

Besides, enterprises have the opportunity to employ people from other regions of the country or even the world, thanks to which they have access to a larger group of specialists. This is especially important for companies from smaller cities, where the number of highly qualified candidates may be too low to build a whole team.

Work quality

Thanks to the fact that the employees can independently decide where, when and in what conditions they want to work, the quality of the tasks performed is much higher. According to statistics, remote employees make 40% fewer errors, which reduces the duration of projects. Also, increasing the quality of work means that employees are more satisfied with their duties and loyal to their employer. 75% of those working remotely indicate that they are ready to continue working in the event of a crisis (terrorist attack, epidemic or natural disaster) as opposed to 28% of office workers.


Office workers need the right conditions to perform their work. In addition to renting space, the company should also provide the necessary equipment, software, and other tools. In most cases, employees in remote mode use their own laptops and mobile devices, so companies do not have to spend money on buying and maintaining a greater amount of equipment.
