How HR can support remote workers—and improve service for all
It’s no secret that remote work is the new norm. In the U.S., the number of telecommuters increased by 159% between 2005 and 2017, and by 2018, 70% of professionals around the world were working remotely at least once a week. This isn’t just good for employees, making it easier for them to avoid lengthy commutes and achieve a healthy work-life balance. Businesses reap the benefits, too: companies that allow remote work experience 25% less turnover than those that don’t—and report higher productivity and lower overhead costs. Yet despite employees pushing for remote work options and employers growing increasingly comfortable with offering them, there are potential downsides that companies must be ready to combat. For one thing, employees say that loneliness is the second biggest challenge of working remotely, with collaboration and communication coming in third. And when issues like this arise, 40% of remote workers say they never or almost never seek out the help of HR.

I’m a 20 year HR/Recruiting Talent Pro with a Master’s in HR and SPHR certification, currently residing in Lansing, MI. Currently the President at HRU Technical Resources – a $40M IT and Engineering contract staffing firm and RPO. Prior to joining HRU, I was the Director of Employment at Sparrow Health System, Regional HR and Staffing Director with Applebee’s Intl., Retail Health Recruiting Manager and Regional HR Mgr. with ShopKo Stores and Pamida respectively. I’ve split my career half between recruiting and half between HR generalist roles – also split half between the HR vendor community and Corporate America – So, I think I get it from both sides of the desk.
