Home or away work from anywhere with improved productivity from Konnetix
As the New Year rolls in, we look at one resolution you’ll be glad to keep that will help you transform productivity.

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2016. How many of your resolutions remain intact? Are you still on track for a healthier, wealthier and more productive you? And are you still doing things differently and feeling positive for the future, or is your resolve starting to crumble?

The trouble with New Year’s resolutions is that they usually represent deprivations and hardships – stop doing that pleasurable thing (eat less or cut down on drinking, for example) or do more of that difficult or unpleasant thing (work harder or go to the gym more often, and so on). So what if we told you that you can improve productivity by doing more of the things you love!

With the rise of remote working, individuals and teams are able to fulfil their job roles from anywhere they choose. That means that organisations can work effectively with their teams spread out across town, the wider country, or anywhere in the world. And it also makes it easier for people to be more flexible and suit themselves with their working hours.

So how about catching up on your e-mail correspondence while you’re waiting to pick up your kids? Or why not pop along to the coffee shop to reflect on your latest business results? And why not work on your sales proposal at your customer’s office, so you can match it more precisely to their needs? Indeed, next time you travel by rail you could use the time to plan strategy more effectively… with an uninterrupted train of thought. As well as improving productivity, you’ll get more time for your friends and family, and for doing enjoyable things.

Indeed, 70% of UK white-collar workers say they “get more done” when they’re able to work flexibly, and 38% say they are more creative*. So people who can match their location to the nature of the task in hand both achieve more and deliver better work. Unlike most New Year resolutions, there’s no downside – you’ll be glad to keep doing it.

Here’s how some Konnetix customers are using flexible working to their advantage:
