Why are more and more people choosing to work remotely?

 

Simply put, it is the future of work. It’s time for us to realize that we don’t always need to spend time in traffic to sit in a cubicle of a glass building when we could be doing the exact same work from anywhere else, with just a laptop and an internet connection. A lot of progressive companies and startups have adopted remote working and are building it in the very fabric of their culture. All of this because most of the work that we do is moving online and that helps us to be creative and productive anywhere we want. We can finally be location independent.

So, what happens when you start working remotely?

  1. You can work from anywhere  
  2. You can set your own schedule
  3. You can travel the world
  4. You can save money
  5. You can be more efficient & productive
  6. You can spend more time on yourself
  7. You can make time to experience new things & meet new people

What are the types of Remote Jobs?

 

Remote jobs stretch all the way from decades old Work from Home jobs to freelance engineers working on latest technologies. The field is constantly increasing and we expect more job profiles to go remote in the next few years. Organizations of all types and sizes are opening up to the possibility of having remote teams. A simple way to breakdown the types of remote jobs would be:

100% REMOTE

You are never (or very rarely) required to go to an office. You are free to travel, live and work anywhere you want.

REMOTE-WITHIN-RANGE

You are free to work from home or anywhere provided you are available on short notice. So you might have to be in the office couple days a week or for important meetings. The policies can be more regulated, with restrictions on when, where, and how you work outside of the office.

FLEXI-TIME

Allows you the flexibility to plan your week, schedules and show up for meetings online or maybe a part of the week that is yours to plan like ‘Flex Fridays’.

FLEXIBLE WORKPLACE

You are expected to work and be available at the office, but you are free to come and leave as you please. Your timings are not strict or monitored and you don’t need to apply for leaves all the time.

    This is seriously the best thing I’ve come across. I’ve been through many other sites and blogs about working as a freelancer but, The Remote Life is the best way to enjoy our day to day life and work according to our own terms. Things here in Remote work are very well defined and will be a refreshing thought for a 9-5 employee at a company. As the world changes and develops, the modes of working are also widened. Using the technology we have, we have to evolve. And that’s what Remote Life is doing.

    Very informative and interesting blog. It gave me a totally new vista about remote work. This is a very different concept where in a person can enjoy his hobbies and travel around without all his time being engulfed by his job and working hours. Also such warm acceptance from so many companies is amazing.

    The Blog is well organised for beginners where lies the answer to every question like WHY?, HOW?, etc.
    But like nothing is perfect and everything can be improved let me put forth my suggestion.
    It will be better to encourage high school and college students for this as they will find it easy to work remotely at first than in a company. The fear of job can be eradicated through this initiative. Also, focussing on a developing country like India with a huge population and many skilled unemployed labour will help in growth of this country and this initiative
    Hope these suggestions are considered.
