Amari Consulting is a premier web/software development company based out of Park City, Utah. The company got its start from founder Erik Jessen , who was at the time a freelancer. He quickly gathered several team members to launch the now highly successful company.
Starting a business of any kind is not an easily achieved venture, especially when you factor in office space costs, finding the right employees, and of course, obtaining customers.
Today, there has been an uptick in companies that allow or even encourage employees to work remotely. One interesting case study is InVision, a highly successful company that develops software focused on augmenting the work of user experience designers. Its entire workforce of more than 700 employees work remotely.
This article from Business Insider provides insight from one of InVision’s top executives who says this business philosophy has given the company a major edge.
Remote Work Growing in Popularity and Benefits
It was in the not so distant past when telecommuting and/or remote work was not as acceptable — it was usually used by freelancers. It was just a few years ago that more and more companies have been embracing remote work for its employees and scenarios such as those from InVision are becoming standard.
From an employer standpoint there are several benefits of remote work:
- Increases productivity
- Reduces turnover
- Improves morale
- Work options are more eco-friendly
And, the benefits for employee can be very positive to both the employee and the company:
- Work-life balance
- Less stress
- No commute
- A Feeling of ownership
