Where do you prefer to work and how, if we had asked this question a few years ago, it would have seemed like a lie.
Having the ability to choose where I want to work from or having some flexibility are aspects highly valued by the job candidate. Absenteeism caused by a simple headache or because one of your children stays home from school will be reduced, with the added advantage of not having to look for someone to take care of him or her. Today it is a reality. More and more corporations are giving us the freedom to choose which formula we would most like to develop our working day. And although the hybrid model has taken hold, among some professionals this is not enough. This is the opinion of Apple’s Director of Machine Learning, Ian Goodfellow, who announced his resignation because he believes that returning to the office penalizes the creativity of his team.
It is true that there are opinions for all tastes: from those who are delighted not to waste time and money on commuting to those who “climb up the walls” after a few months because they need to leave their natural habitat.
However, the trend is clear that more and more people prefer to work remotely.
The remote proposal also has important advantages for corporations, which save on travel and per diem costs, as well as reducing the square footage of their facilities, with the consequent energy savings. However, although the percentage of companies that allow 100% remote working is still tiny, the trend is evident in American companies.
Before the pandemic, only 5% allowed 40% of their employees to have more than three days of telework; during Covid, the same was true of 72% of corporations.
A vital benefit of teleworking is employee loyalty. By having autonomy, flexibility and cost savings, a bond of mutual trust is created and more commitment is acquired, avoiding the company’s continuous rotation of personnel and achieving the personal satisfaction of the employee.
All this leads us to consider that the employee will be able to work “from anywhere” and will need the necessary tools to do so: laptop, monitor, cell phone and printer with scanner, as essential elements. In the case of the latter, they will always need to have the right consumables on time so that their work is not interrupted, in addition to a control and collection system that guarantees the circular economy and the reuse of the cartridge or toner.
The Nubeprint App allows the automatic replenishment of consumables by monitoring printers remotely, ensuring sustainability because it will optimize the change of consumables at the right time, avoiding unnecessary waste.
