The Rise of Remote Working: Top Global Industries Leading the Way
Posted by Insightlink on 11/08/18
More business owners are swapping rigid 9-5 schedules and traditional office environments in favour of flexible space and remote working as an option for saving costs, retaining employees and encouraging a healthy work-life balance. With this in mind, Instant Offices investigates what industries are leading the way for remote working and how to overcome the typical challenges of managing a remote team.
A 2016 study conducted by Vodafone involving 8,000 global employees and employers found that three-quarters of companies worldwide have already switched to flexible working options. 61% believe that it had increased the company’s profits and 83% reported a boost in productivity. Additionally, numerous studies suggest that workers would choose flexible working over a pay rise, indicating that more people are interested in a better work-life balance and a schedule that fits their agenda.
Furthermore, according to Remoters.net, 7.25% of the remote companies listed on their website are originally from the UK, second only to the US. Now more than ever, the best talent is seeking organisations that encourage and support flexible working. The growth in this trend is primarily fuelled by technology, including the rapid increase of mobile tech, communication and project management platforms, as well as the rapid growth of Wi-Fi hotspots, likely to hit 432.5 million globally by 2020.

After technology, marketing is the second-best industry for remote workers, with 24.5% of remote jobs posted from this field. The reason for its popularity is that numerous roles can be covered completely online, including content writers, social media managers, SEO strategists and digital marketers.
