In this COVID era, more and more companies are turning into a distributed work model. Why? Because of the level of autonomy, productivity, flexibility, and inclusivity it provides.
Distributed work refers to companies that rely on employees based in different physical locations. The terms remote or virtual are typically used when companies with physical locations allow their employees to work from home (or from anywhere). With distributed work, there are no headquarters or physical location to speak of. The work is undertaken in different locations and different time zones. Therefore, it offers more flexibility. Since your company doesn’t work just within a certain time zone, your company is in operation nonstop. Everyone’s working asynchronously and that means clients are always being served.
The Benefits of a Distributed Company
Autonomy is at the core of this model because it frees you from having to commute and sit in an office environment all day long.
We all are not productive at the same time of day so having this model fosters sharpness and creativity. You get to work at your most productive and optimal time. You get to structure your day in a way that you’re able to maximize your well-being both personally and professionally, and then achieve your best results.
Distributed work allows you to define which environment is best for you to do your best work – while also living your best life. Since work is undertaken in different locations and different time zones, your company is in operation nonstop. Everyone’s working asynchronously and that means clients are always being served.
Distributed companies allow those who living a nonconventional lifestyle to pursue their career outside of the corporate office environment. You get to continue to live your life in the way that serves you.
Your team produces their best results.
From an employer’s perspective, this model allows your team to produce their best work because they’re working at their best hours. Therefore, you’re getting the best version of themselves.
