Back in the day, work starts at 9 and it often ends at 5, which coiled the term ‘9 to 5 job’. However, these days, this terminology is hardly heard. Since, in today’s business, to stay competitive in the market, businesses should be kept running (almost, if not always) 24/7 like a well-oiled machine – contacting domestic and international business partners, clients and/or colleagues through phone calls and emails, organizing data and going in and out of the office, etc.
Fortunately, advancements in communication technology, have shaped business practices into a more free and flexible work environment. ‘Remote-working’ refers to the ability to access resources from a remote location. This gave birth to a mobile workforce, giving employees instantaneous access to the necessary resources, at any time, from any place. Now, more and more companies recognize the importance of ‘telework’ and productivity it delivers to the business – providing an increase in business agility while offering flexible working environment, in which empowers employees with a clear-cut approach to maintain work-life balance.
