Get More Done – And Save Time
Working from home has a way of emphasizing what matters most—getting the job done. Research backs this.
A 2012-2013 study from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business revealed that call center workers who were allowed to work from home for nine months were 13 percent more productive. They took fewer breaks, had fewer sick days, and took more calls per minute.
Participants also reported higher levels of job satisfaction, and the company’s retention of workers improved.
Businesses that include virtual assistants in their model can realize similar benefits. Sick days, turnover, disengagement, and other pitfalls associated with rigid work cultures have true business costs.
The virtual option can ease the burden, alleviate some risks, and introduce quickened pluses in performance.
