You are listening to Trinity employment’s “A” player matchmaker podcast, storing your host, and the co-founder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter. Hello,
Welcome back to the, a player matchmakers, where we’re always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers in their particular title of this podcast is remote work trends of 2020, and Holy cow has the workplace changed. And one of the things that have changed is where you work, um, even here at Trinity. And I would have never thought that I would say this ever before, um, we are having people even work from home. Why? Because we would have never realized this before, but we found that there is a lot of productivity that happens when you’re not barraged by distractions, just by being here in the office. And so remote work is changing how the workspace operates in a trend that shows no sign of slowing down at all. And in fact, it’s increasing remote work is rapidly increasing for Tulsa Medical Staffing, not just in our area, but all over the world.
Um, more and more employees are working in remote positions. You know you know what? One thing that was interesting is I had a couple of our employees, one of them in particular, who was really, really wanting to work from home, like really bad. And she had come to me, I don’t know how many different times, the same man, I would just love to work from home. Do you think that that would ever be an option? And of course, I said, I don’t think so at all, this is a sales position with our Tulsa Medical Staffing service. I like to, you know, be able to work with people right next to me and sales. And I just didn’t see it as an option at all. And then when this happened, we had no choice. So we had a certain group of people here at Trinity begin working from home. We had to make some decisions about, you know, how many people we could even staff.
But this was an interesting thing. Everyone in our office altogether in the agreement could not wait to get back to the office. And the one person that was so interested in being able to work from home said, I thought I was looking forward to doing this. I was not happy with it at all. And I read an article not long ago saying that there were many people who were intending to retire, spent some time at home and completely changed their minds. So there is a huge trend for people working from home with our great Tulsa Medical Staffing service. The reason is, is because employers don’t want to have to pay for space when they don’t have to. It’s interesting. I’ve got a good friend of mine. He provides it support for companies that, uh, you know, that, you know, if it were just for their PC support and that sort of thing, and all of a sudden he had basically a hundred percent of all of their customers, having all of their employees work from home.
And that was interesting for them because now cybersecurity is a huge threat to companies because they’re not working through the same kind of firewall that they were before. I believe that that’s what they were saying. I think that I understood them correctly, but it’s, it’s a really big deal. Um, from Mark, from digital marketing, web development, sales, customer service, technical support, translation services, and many, many more work, you know, remote working is growing across every sector almost. Um, and before we peer into how remote work is expecting to develop in the future, um, let’s, let’s take a look at where the industry is so far. Um, remote work is likely going to be here to stay with our Tulsa Medical Staffing, and it’s not just for the digital people in a study done by buffer.com about the state of work of re remote work in 2019 99% of the interviewees reported that they would like at least once in their career to be able to work offsite in this crazy figure.
Not only proves that the raw remote work is now immensely popular among a lot of people, but it’s also not just fading trend, but one of the things that I would like to point in towards that statistic that I just read there is that, yeah, 99% of the people said they would like to be able to work from home, but like, who doesn’t think I wouldn’t like I would like to not have to drive to work and control my work schedule. Almost everybody thinks that, but I just about bet you money, that that number has fallen since so many people got the opportunity to do that because what I’ve noticed is, and this is definitely not scientific or proven or anything other than just a general observation. But I noticed that those employees who were naturally more of an introvert or a type B personality, maybe they were, uh, you know, minded to where they, you know, did a lot of numbers or just the workspace alone kept them kind of in their office, in front of their screen.
And that’s what they liked. These people, this group of people, they loved the new change. What I noticed that I was surprised by though, is your salesman. Uh, you know, people who have more of a type, a personality, people who really enjoyed being around people, they struggled greatly in almost felt like they were in some kind of prison during this time period with our Tulsa Medical Staffing. Um, uh, there’s a quote by, uh, a gentleman named Adam Reimer. He said, I’ve noticed more and more of the projects are realizing a set office does not need to happen in the city where the owner lives and listen, this has always been the goal. Um, I, my, my friends who own it firm that I was telling you about earlier, they’ve been saying this for a long time, that this would be a much better situation for them. But the reality of it is, is many current employees are willing to change workplaces. If it means working remotely, a report by zapier.com published at the end of 2019. Keep in mind, again, we had not yet seen 2020. It revealed that about 74% of the workforce would prefer to quit a job for one that offers remote positions.
And again, I still think that an option of part of the week is it at least for Trinity, that’s the best option. I know that’s not for everyone. Um, re from level up marking. They, they said they have a statistic here. Remote work is also an increasingly desirable trait. Uh, an employer can offer with 57% of the workforce saying that the option to work remotely is their most preferable employment perk. And, and I definitely agree with that. I told another, like one of my very best friends, he has been managing people all over the world from home. He has networking security to use the best Tulsa Medical Staffing around, uh, the support company that he runs, and he has people working in Sweden. I know, I believe Amsterdam, um, Australia, um, all over the United States and he may he’s able to manage them from home. And one of the things that I told him was because we were having this discussion is that companies better have their KPIs or their key performance indicators really in, before they start having people work from home and a verifiable way to, to monitor whether someone is actually doing the work at Trinity.
We are so blessed right now. And I, I really say this with hopeful, hopeful eyes and ears and knocking on the table that it continues, but we’ve got a group of people that if you send them home, you don’t, you don’t have to worry about it. You know, for certain that a lot of good work is going to get done. But if you do not have that, and even if you do have that, you better have a way of managing what gets done during those days. Because even, even though people may, you know, employees may start out strong once the comfortability hits they’re there. It’s going to be slow while I might watch TV here with our Tulsa Medical Staffing. Oh, I’ve got some things to do here. Oh, I’ve got, I’m going to go walk my dog right now or whatever it is, there are just a million distractions at home, and there is no accountability. If you don’t have the key metrics that you can hold them accountable with. I think this is really great advice where I’m going to be doing a part two of this particular topic. And, um, please stay tuned for that.
