Remote-first employees enjoy the flexibility of deciding where and when to work. They avoid wasting time stuck in traffic and can work when they feel the most productive, contributing to a better work-life balance.
A broader and diverse talent pool:
Recruiters and HR professionals have a much wider selection of talent in a remote-first workforce. They are no longer limited by geography or time zones and can choose from an international talent pool.
Reduced carbon footprint:
A remote-first workforce is a more sustainable and environmentally friendly way of working. Reducing the impact of the daily commute is the most immediate and obvious climate benefit of remote work. Transportation accounted for 29 percent of greenhouse gases emitted in the U.S. in 2019.
