If you’re a parent, one of the hardest things to do is to leave your newborn baby in the care of a nanny or a babysitter while you return to work full time. No doubt tears were shed and then some. In fact, you secretly wished you could work from home so you could be with your baby. Enter COVID-19, the unexpected virus that forced millions of Americans to work from home for the first time. Your company didn’t have a choice because the government shut down. Now that you work from home, you love it and don’t want to return. So should your company stay working from home once COVID restrictions lift?

BENEFITS OF STAYING REMOTE IN A POST-COVID WORLD
The most obvious benefit in terms of cost is in the overhead savings. When all of your employees are working remotely, your office costs disappear. As most small business owners know, this can be a huge expense. From utility bills to paying the rent, the cleaning people, and the snow removal services in the wintertime, there are a lot of costs associated with having a physical location as a business owner. When all of your staff work from home, these costs disappear, allowing you to take those savings and invest them elsewhere. This can be huge, especially if you are considering launching a new product.
Many employees love working from home. There are so many lifestyle benefits, from being able to be at home with your kids to eliminating the headache of having to commute and drive in the snow. And there is most definitely something to be said about working in your pajamas. You can wear what you want, be comfortable, have everything you need, eat lunch when you want, and be home working with a cat on your lap. Some people call work from home jobs a little piece of heaven, and the most certainly can be. As a small business owner, The Medical Link recommends that you do a survey of your employees about whether they want to stay working from home before you make a decision.
CHOOSE THE MEDICAL LINK FOR ALL YOUR EMPLOYEE BENEFITS NEEDS
Through PEOs (Professional Employer Organizations), your small to medium-sized business in New York can offer affordable employee benefits while receiving HR support, integration with payroll, and be in regulatory compliance.
