By now, just about everybody knows what remote working is. It is a concept of working from home while staying connected with your work through various means of communication. This technology helps us be productive during chaotic times such as the Covid-19 Pandemic. As you may have known, businesses and office spaces stopped functioning during this phase.

And during such time, remote working technology brought some hope for businesses to continue their business. If it were not for remote working technology and the internet, many businesses would have gone bankrupt or might have been shut down; thankfully, many were sustaining their business by working remotely.

Remote access with the help of remote technology allows users to access a device or network from an offsite location, which opens doors to access systems where they cannot connect directly. One can access, control and manage files and data stored in a remote device from wherever they are. For this, existing means such as video calls, group chats, and file managing apps came to our rescue through smartphones and laptops.

That said, we understand that some physical work can’t be done remotely, but businesses and people have found ways for many things that were not usually done remotely. Computer and IT services or education and training were done remotely, entirely, or partially in some places. Education institutions can run entirely remotely regardless of the Covid 19 Pandemic.

Along with this, people are generally more comfortable and at peace at the home office, further boosting productivity from the home office.

Less employee turnover

Employees are free to do work in a favorable environment of their preference, so there are not many factors that might make them leave. Employee loyalty and retention are improved among remote workers due to a more suitable work-life balance.

Companies can find more options to choose from and so will job seekers

More distraction

Isolation and limitations to interaction

When a person is working remotely, they are less likely to have good communication with the people working in the company. They might feel socially isolated because of a lack of human interaction; therefore, before hiring and after hiring, the employee and the employer must have good communication to minimize the problem of isolation and less interaction.


So, is remote working technology a blessing or curse? Most would agree that it’s a boon of science, at least ever since the Covid19 Pandemic.
