The corporate world is changing fast. New trends, technologies, and circumstances have brought immense change in this industry, some of which were intended and others that weren't. One of these changes is corporate mobility, and how it’s skyrocketed since the pandemic.
Offering work-from-home or mobile working opportunities has since become a need for employees, as they’ve seen productive changes. With the future of corporate mobility, here are some things that you should know before it’s too late.
It’s no secret by now that employees and teams prefer to work from home or any other space that is most comfortable for them. Companies have also found increasing rates of creativity and productivity when people get to work from their comfort spaces.
Meetings can be held at shorter notice and team members can all be a part of it, regardless of the time, distance or weather. Global mobility has therefore offered workplace mobility like never before. Companies of the future have accepted that the future is indeed going to be mobile-based, and it’s good to get used to it. Integrating rules and mobility into your company no is a good idea.
Through corporate mobility, employees can feel included in all team meetings, events, and projects. This is because regardless of their location or physical limitations, they can all be present in one space, at the same time.
People with special needs, age problems, or family concerns are often left out being unable to travel. Through corporate mobility, these people have a shot at being part of a company and making a difference all without having to leave their families or challenge their physical limitations.
According to data collected by several reports, employees feel more comfortable and have a deeper sense of belonging to companies and employers that offer them mobility options.
No Need For Commutes
When asked about some of the biggest problems people have with going to the office, commuting is often the number one cause of concern. Traffic long rides on the train, and walking to and from the office are the biggest wasters of time and energy,
Through corporate mobility, people don't have to waste their time, money, or energy traveling for hours and can instead put that energy into their work, that too with a better mood. Companies have seen this change in employee behavior as well. When people wake up slightly later and don’t have to take hour-long trains, or get stuck in traffic, their moods are a lot better.
Companies and employers can benefit from this positive employee attitude. Corporations that provide transport services, can also save a significant amount of money.
No Immigration Hassle
As unfortunate as it is, not everyone faces equal treatment when it comes to immigration and obtaining work visas. Companies with no corporate mobility programs have no choice other than to get their employees from every part of the world to their own offices, in one country. Should those employees face visa hurdles, companies have to lose out on potential talent.
With the ability to work remotely, and from anywhere in the world, companies no longer have to worry about applying for visas which can cost money, and be a lengthy process. If in an unfortunate event, an employee is not granted a visa, they can continue to work remotely, and the employer gets to retain their talent.
It’s no doubt that the more people you have coming in and working on-site, the more expenditures you will have. While your company expenses won't go down to 0, you will still save up in numerous areas. Electricity, maintenance, cleaning services, pantry costs, and various other office running expenses will be cut down since some or most of your employees have gone mobile.
These are some of the pain points that you should consider when thinking about corporate mobility. Other than being able to save a significant amount of money, your company can hire and retain talent from anywhere in the word without having to worry about visas. All this while your employees have a better mood and healthier attitude.
You can always recommend your employees to come into work mobile, from a co-working space, if you’re looking for the perfect one, don't forget to check out Iconic Workspaces.
