The “Human” Benefits of Remote Work

“These days, with technology expansion we have slack, teamviewer, asana ..etc playing a vital roles in making the team to communication more effectively than every. So I never feel that working remotely we are totally lost. Still, these days, different time zones can be bothersome.  Our CTO is in EEST timezone, and I’m in IST. So my mornings are with him. Other team members are mostly based in EST time zone, which is later in my night. So I’ve been adjusting”

“My two month trip to Canada was possible because of remote work. I also attended a tech conference in March 2017, half sponsored by Convert. And I’m always free to travel with my family while still working from my laptop.”

The main reason was the Greek economic crisis since I had no other options than to search globally for a job opening. My studies, diplomas and multilingualism allowed me to chart this path, and I am grateful that I followed it!”
“Remote work showed me my virtues and my defects.
I discovered I had to improve my organization skills when I started at Convert. And that I’d have to work harder to communicate clearly and often; the good and the bad (especially the bad).”

Working from home can be a trap if you’re not responsible. You have to really learn to manage your time or it can be a disaster. But it’s worth the effort you must put in to learn the skills, because once you bring this new philosophy to your life, you become more proactive, and independent than before.”
