Remote work is on the rise. Due to COVID-19, more employees than ever have at least had a taste of the work-from-home lifestyle. Even before the pandemic, however, remote work was becoming an in-demand benefit, with some companies deciding to take on a fully remote model.
Wondering if remote work might be right for you? Although the only real way to know is to try it, there are some demographics that are more likely to thrive in a remote environment. Here’s a look at a few of those groups, and why remote work is so effective for them, brought to you by the computer experts at Bay Area Computer Repairs.
Want to start your own company? Home-based may be the way to go:
- Running a home-based business comes with substantial savings on location costs.
- Protect your assets by forming a limited liability company. Investigate the cost of registering an LLC in the state of California, and remember that it may make sense to save time with a formation service.
- Remember to create a home office that reflects your brand, especially if you’ll host clients there in person or via video chat.
Remote work can be the perfect post-military role:
- Working from home can open you up to opportunities all over the world, expanding your options.
- If you have a disability, home may be the safest and most comfortable work environment.
- Veterans with PTSD can benefit from having a safe and predictable environment in which to work.
Working from home gives you the power to manage work and take care of your loved one.
- Whether you take care of children, adult dependents, or senior loved ones, remote work can make life far simpler.
- Look for roles that offer schedule flexibility in order to best suit your needs.
- Freelance roles can be particularly useful, as they allow you to set your own schedule and workload, putting you in control.
These are just a few groups that are likely to benefit from the remote work lifestyle. It’s important to remember that, even if you’re a member of one of these groups, it’s best to give working from home a shot before you commit to it. It isn’t right for everyone, but those who enjoy it often can’t imagine going back to working in person. Give it a shot to see if it’s right for you!
