Remote work has become the norm now more than ever. There are additional benefits to hiring remotely, including financial benefits for employees and employers, a wider pool of talent to choose from and increased diversity within a company.
Remote has surveyed 1,505 entrepreneurs who work remotely across the UK, US and Canada to determine how founders around key markets are working remotely on their businesses, and how they navigate their teams.
Almost half of entrepreneurs (47%) said their priorities have changed for the better since moving to a remote model
The pandemic taught many workers to take an alternative approach to work. These new arrangements, particularly flexible work arrangements, have brought into question traditional employee-employer relationships, work time and working hours, and work-life balance.
46% of entrepreneurs in the UK said their priorities have changed for the better since adapting a remote work model; for example, prioritising a better life-work balance and more time for friends and family.
