It has long been argued that the working people in the UK would enjoy a better quality of life if they had the option of working from home more often. This thinking is in keeping with a number of current political issues such as being more green, the strengthening of the family unit by the parents spending more time with their children and each other etc. Now, an award has been launched to reward those who earn a living in full or in part from their homes.
Remote Employment has announced the launch of the Remote Worker Awards to highlight how remote and home working benefits the environment, business productivity and employees’ quality of work life.
The Remote Worker Awards comes at a time when companies across the UK are faced with downsizing their work force. The awards aim to raise awareness for remote and home working as an alternate solution to redundancy and the traditional nine to five office routine.
With nine categories including The Home Business Award and Remote Employer Award, winners will enjoy thousands of pounds worth of prizes from a garden office, employment advertising, computer hardware, and business software to essential consultancy advice from PR and marketing experts.
Paula Wynne, organiser of the awards and co-founder of Remote Employment, expects to unearth an abundance of inventive pioneers who champion flexibility with remote working solutions. She stated: “The Remote Worker Awards will feature the winners in a Remote Worker E-Book to help other companies to implement a flexible and remote working program.”
Companies entering this award will receive national recognition as a forward thinking company which in turn will raise their company profile. As well as gaining credibility in their industry, the winning Remote Employer will also receive valuable prizes that will increase the effectiveness of their remote workforce.
The prestigious panel of judges includes successful businesswoman and serial entrepreneur, Karen Darby, founder of Simply Switch and Jeff Zbar, founder of Chief Home Officer in the United States, who will be a remote judge.
