In the last 15 years, the number of people working from home has risen by 140%.
For younger employees especially, remote working is more of an expectation than a perk. But it also makes sense for businesses:
• Companies that allow remote work have 25% lower employee turnover
• People who work remotely at least once a month are 24% more likely to be happy and productive
• That’s why, globally, 52% of employees work from home at least once a week
Technology has been a major driver of this trend. After all, it’s much easier to work from home when all you need is a mobile device. That’s certainly true with Workplace, which combines instant messaging, video conferencing and company-wide updates to keep people connected when they’re working remotely.
In this guide, we’ll look at some of the tools and features you can use to bring people together and deepen engagement at a time when it’s vitally important that all employees have access to the latest information and advice.
