How Zigaflow can help while you're working from home

There are lots of financial and business-related benefits to working from home, and it seems like people are starting to notice them. In fact, many companies have realised that physically being at the office isn't always necessary to produce good results. According to Global Workplace Analytics, businesses lose over $600 billion a year (that's roughly £454 billion) to 'workplace distractions', and that remote workers are 35-40% more productive than those who work full-time at the office. FlexJobs found similar results- their survey of more than 2,100 people who have worked remotely discovered that 51% of workers reported feeling more productive while working from home, and 95% said that productivity had been higher or the same while working remotely.

This is not to say that the home office doesn't also have personal benefits. Being in the comfort of your own home, using your computer or laptop rather than company equipment, sometimes working in your pyjamas- these are just a few. It also gives some parents the privilege of spending more time with their families, pets and other loved ones. In general, remote working or 'hybrid' working (dividing your time between the home and the office) has the potential to create a more relaxed work environment compared to the stresses of a busy office, which can be great for productivity.

With this in mind, if businesses are going to start encouraging remote work or 'hybrid' schedules, how do we create these productive home/work environments?

We think Zigaflow might have the answer.
