Embracing Remote Work Since 2013
How Our Digital Agency Thrives in the Age of Flexibility
Long before the COVID-19 pandemic brought remote work to the forefront, our Zurich-based digital agency embraced this progressive work model since its founding in 2013. By recognizing the potential benefits early on, we have been able to refine and perfect our processes over the years. This has allowed our team to adapt seamlessly to the challenges posed by the global shift to remote work.
Insights from Our Collective's Journey
In this article, we will share the key benefits that remote work has brought to both our employees and clients, highlighting how our agency has continued to thrive in this increasingly connected and flexible world.
Increased Flexibility and Autonomy
Remote work allows our employees to have greater control over their work schedules, providing the flexibility to balance their professional and personal lives. This autonomy fosters a sense of trust and responsibility, empowering employees to work at their own pace and during their most productive hours. The result is a happier, more motivated team and higher-quality output.
Seamless Collaboration and Communication
By utilizing cutting-edge technology and communication tools, our digital agency ensures that all team members can easily collaborate and share information.
In addition to improving collaboration, our asynchronous communication style also increases productivity. Without the need for constant meetings and face-to-face interactions, our team can focus on their tasks and complete them at their own pace. This flexibility leads to higher-quality output and a more motivated team.
Using tools like Notion, Slack, Trello and project management software to keep track of tasks and deadlines, ensures that everyone is on the same page. This allows us to work seamlessly and effectively, no matter where we are located in the world.
Access to a Global Talent Pool
Being location-independent allows us to tap into a diverse, global talent pool without any geographical constraints. This means we can recruit the best talent from around the world, bringing unique perspectives and expertise to the table, which in turn enriches our creativity and innovation.
Reduced Overhead Costs
By not having a physical office, our digital agency saves on operational costs such as rent, utilities, and office supplies. This allows us to allocate resources more effectively and focus on what truly matters: providing exceptional services to our clients.
Enhanced Work-Life Balance
Our employees can work from anywhere, eliminating the need for time-consuming commutes and the stress associated with them. This enables our team members to prioritize their well-being and enjoy a better work-life balance, ultimately contributing to improved mental health and job satisfaction.
A remote work model contributes to a smaller carbon footprint, as it reduces the need for daily commuting and lowers energy consumption in office buildings. This aligns with our company values of promoting sustainability and being environmentally responsible.
Time Savings from Eliminating the Daily Commute
One of the most significant benefits of remote work is the elimination of the daily commute to and from the office. Commuting can be a major time sink, often taking up hours of an employee's day. By embracing a fully remote work model, our team members are able to reclaim this valuable time and invest it more productively in their work or personal lives. This not only leads to increased job satisfaction but also allows our employees to be more focused and efficient, ultimately benefiting both our agency and our clients.
Customized Solutions for Clients
Our remote model allows us to work with clients from all around the world, understanding their unique needs and providing tailored solutions. The diverse talent within our team can draw from their own cultural backgrounds and experiences to generate innovative ideas, helping our clients stand out in an increasingly competitive market.
Remote work has enabled us to access top talent, provide exceptional service to our clients, and create a working environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and a healthy work-life balance. As the world continues to evolve, we believe that remote work will become even more prevalent, shaping the future of work for the better.
