From the 1980s onwards there were many predictions that millions of people would be working from home by the 2000s. As we know, this never really came to fruition, not that is, until 2020!

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic many people found themselves working from home. It quickly became apparent that home working works for many employees and employers. The technology is there to facilitate this and there are enormous benefits to this way of working.

For employees there is the opportunity for a better work/life balance, and a reduction in the stress and cost of commuting, and for employers there is potential to reduce costs such as office space, energy bills and even tea and coffee!

Working remotely isn’t for everyone and that’s where we come in. We can help to find the right people, with the right aptitude to work for your organisation, remotely. Recruit Cumbria can help employers unlock more talent by being more remote-friendly.

  • Less commuting means happier employees (not to mention cost-saving to them). According to a Lloyds Bank study, the average worker spends £37,399 over their lifetime on commuting.
