The way we work is rapidly changing. Some of us already manage fully-remote teams. Others have on-site employees that are going remote because of the coronavirus. But regardless of the current situation, distributed teams are here to stay.
In this article, we’re going to show you why distributed (remote) teams are the future of the workforce, and how they can help you grow your business.
Let’s take a look!
Distributed Teams Provide Better Access to Talent
The employee you’ve always wanted to hire might be living across the world.
If you have an on-site team, you can’t hire them, regardless of the perfect culture fit and their stellar productivity habits.
But with distributed teams, hiring people from all over the world is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
Conversely, diverse teams don’t have to worry about their daily commute. They plugin, complete their work, and plug out.
Remote work also influences significant life decisions.
According to recent research, 24% of remote workers have made decisions such as going back to school because they worked remotely.
Remote work frees up a lot of your employees’ time. And when they can focus on their goals and feel accomplished, they’re going to contribute more at work.

Think about a typical office scenario. You’ve got plenty of employees, and no sustainable way of tracking their performance. Some put in more effort, while others engage in what’s commonly known as social loafing.
But when you have a distributed team, you can see everything.
Because distributed teams rely on performance tracking and collaboration software, you can easily see who’s doing what.
