Virtual Employee as a new normal in Energy Industry

blog image

The recent months have drastically changed the way companies across all sectors, including energy sector, work. The way we worked has changed, too, as we were forced to adapt to the unexpected. The COVID-19 pandemic, the changing geopolitical situation and the looming economic crisis mean one thing: hiring global, act local.

The energy sector is among those most affected by supply chain disruptions. This resulted in a sharp increase in the costs and a drop in the margins. Many companies are therefore looking for the solutions that would help them to be more competitive and ensure long-term sustainability of their business model. One way to do that is to introduce the remote work. While some industries have been able to make a seamless transition to the remote work, many energy suppliers have embraced the hybrid team model – a team made up of remotely-working employees and highly skilled on-site employees.

Remote work brings more benefits than meets the eye. Remote work means improved structures and operating models, reduced costs and even possibility of attracting the top talents from all over the world. Let’s summarize 6 reasons why a virtual employee is a great choice:

1. Cost Reduction

Virtual employees mean cost reduction. It’s not just the day-to-day operating costs (like costs of running an office), it’s also other employee-related expenses.

2. Focus on Core Operations

Many companies have confirmed that since switching to the remote work, they have noticed an increase of the work efficiency. Teams working remotely focus their attention on projects that are most important to the company and don’t waste time chit-chatting.

3. Increased Production

Studies show that the productivity of employees working remotely has increased by up to 40-45%. This has a significant impact on the increase in the overall work production.

4. Unlimited Recruitment Opportunities

Studies show that the productivity of employees working remotely has increased by up to 40-45%. This has a significant impact on the increase in the overall work production.

5. Higher Retention Rate

It is important to retain quality employees, especially those in whom the company has already invested not only money, but also energy, especially in times when skilled labour is in high demand.

6. Better Control

Remote work offers better oversight in terms of meeting the set intermediate steps within a specific project.

Every coin has two sides. It should be noted that remote work model is working only when all parties involved play by the rules. These include, for example, increased caution in terms of cyber threats, as with remote work this risk increases significantly. With remote work, managers should create and implement result-oriented structure with clearly defined tasks and competencies, oversee the implementation of project stages at regular online meetings, and ensure employees have everything they need to keep up the good work regardless of their physical location. Time zone coordination is the alpha and omega of remote work success stories. We have several years of experience under our belt, and we are more than capable of addressing and removing obstacles that prevent you from successfully implementing your projects.
