If the amount of expenses is higher than the volume of revenues, you are in trouble. But the lower are the costs compared to the revenues, the better it is for your business’s financial health.

Constantly analyzing your profit against costs is a sure way to maximize earnings and promote the optimal use of resources. …

In recent years, remote work has been gaining momentum and now seems to be the norm for many businesses. Indeed, there are some good reasons to work remotely:

  • The company reduces its operating expenses (like leasing offices, furniture, fixtures and equipment), while its employees save on commuting expenses and potentially have a better work-life balance.
  • If companies embrace remote work, they can also access a global talent pool, and not just people in their local area. Likewise, employees can work for companies anywhere on the globe.

However, keeping employees motivated and engaged while working remotely generates its own challenges. …

Working from home may have its perks, but it certainly doesn’t come without its fair share of stress and struggles.

More than three quarters of people in a survey agreed that work stress takes a toll on their mental health and around 75% of people have experienced burnout at work.

Burnout is a form of job stress that can result in a host of…

Remote work produces many benefits. It results in lower business costs, higher retention rates and improved staff satisfaction. Remote employees have a better chance to balance their professional and personal lives than office workers.

Taking all these positive effects into account, it’s not surprising that 90% of HR leaders believe that companies will allow their team members to work remotely, at least partially, even after the end of the Covid pandemic. …
