VTQ Magazine – The SmartWorking Movement
We’re thrilled to be featured in VTQ Think Global magazine!
Vanessa Tierney discusses how Abodoo is driving the global SmartWorking Movement and outlines the future of remote and smart working, it’s exponential growth over the last 12 months and the benefits it provides both employees and employers.
“It is really difficult to find talent online and be able to recruit the people you are looking for. Abodoo is designed to fill this platform and make it affordable for people to go through the recruitment process,” says Tierny.
So what is smart working? Smart working is having flexibility in the workplace. That could be working from home or a co-working hub work space or a combination of the two. The key word is flexibility.
Tierny comments, “There are two markets driving this. One is employers seeing how much they are spending on real estate for office spaces when there is not a need for one desk per person. And two is happiness. If employees are happy, they are more likely to stick around.”
Smart working allows for people to not give up parts of their lives. With housing prices on the rise, some people may not be able to afford to live in the same town as their employer. With smart working, someone could be an hour outside of work and still go to the office once or twice a week but work remotely from home the rest of the time. By doing this, people are able to spend more time with their families, friends and other activities they may not be able to do if they have an hour commute each morning. With more flexibility, more optioins would be available for employers.
By 2020, 60% of all employees will be Smart Working in some capacity. Companies not looking into flexible options for their employees and growth will be left behind. Is your company ready?
