Last year, the world observed a huge shift in the job sector, all thanks to the pandemic situation. Some companies happily adapted to the new tech, while other businesses became a necessary evil they had to accept.
But now that organizations are experiencing benefits like improved productivity and employee loyalty, it looks like remote working is here to stay for good.
According to a report, by 2025, it’s estimated that more than 70% of the workforce will be working from home at least five days a month. From large corporate houses to small businesses, everyone has accepted WFH as a part of their culture.
On that note, allow us to introduce you to a rather interesting remote working trend that’s taking over the business world.
Bambee – revolutionizing remote work
Meet Allan Jones, founder of Bambee, an LA-based start-up company that provides HR managers for small and midsize organizations on a monthly basis. When Bambee started out as a small business, Jones experienced a lot of challenges as an entrepreneur, especially since he had his own baggage from his father’s past.
When he was just 14, Jones’ father was dragged to court due to wrongful termination by a former colleague. Without proper guidance of the HR department, it was very difficult to back his case, which is why they had to hire a professional lawyer.
But unfortunately, the lawyer ended up taking away all their savings that were reserved for Allan’s college fees. Needless to say, this incident took a toll on Jones’s life and he was stuck with it for a while. But, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, and something similar happened with Jones when he decided to set up Bambee.
He knew there were hundreds of small businesses that don’t hire human resource (HR) professionals for their organizations because they don’t have enough funds. But realizing the importance of HR in an organization, he wanted to make it available for everyone in need, for an affordable price.
The new trend
At Bambee, companies can hire dedicated HRs who can help them craft policies, handle people management, and take care of everything else with the help of apps and tools that are user-friendly in the remote world.
According to a report, HR software is believed to become a $43 billion industry by the end of 2026. Despite a minor halt last year, many small businesses and companies have intensified the usage of such platforms.
Dan Staley, PriceWaterhouseCooper’s U.S. HR technology leader, states that if you’re looking forward to an impressive employee experience that intensely impacts the productivity of your workers, the HR department is where you need to have better automation. We couldn’t agree more!
Jones believes if you want your business to grow and accomplish the challenges that are associated with long-term remote work, as a leader it’s your duty to provide transparency between HRs and employees.
He adds that the pandemic has acted as a giant Super Bowl ad and there’s a lot at stake, which is why, right now businesses need to hire HRs more than ever before.
