Is remote working right for you?

Picture the scenario: you’re running your business from your office just like you’ve always done, but your team are showing signs of discontent. You’ve just lost one of your most productive team members to a competitor, with their exit interview revealing that they weren’t happy about having to come into the office every single day. You can feel the beginnings of a shifting dynamic; whether you’re at work or down the pub with a hard-earned drink, people are talking about remote working.

Perhaps you’re feeling under pressure to allow your own employees to work from home (or a trendy co-working space in Bali), but you’re cautious about the impact on your business. Don’t worry – you’re not alone! We speak to entrepreneurs all day long and found that many share the same fears, so we’ve put together a few posts and resources for business owners who are considering letting their team work remotely.

Although traditional landlines can be more reliable (and therefore often the obvious choice), internet connectivity has become so omnipresent that more and more companies are switching to virtual phone systems as they’re generally more flexible and cost-effective.

VoIP 101 – Intro to internet business phone services

When starting a business there are a lot of jobs you need to tick of your checklist, from securing your domain name to hiring the first recruit.
