Technology makes this possible and employees are happy when they can balance their work and personal lives. The business stands to gain with happier employees. Happier employees are usually more engaged, which in turn helps with your end product. Time saved from the morning and afternoon commutes can be more effectively spent on actual work.
Working at Biba, we take workplace flexibility very seriously: Biba helps us stay connected and working collaboratively from wherever we are, across time zones, state and country lines.
You’ve heard Jennie’s story about connecting straight to meetings from her phone with Biba AutoCall on her commute into the city on public transit. There’s Matt who executes sales demos from his apartment after an early morning workout. There’s Beth who works from home with her dog Happy fielding support tickets a few days of the week. And there’s Cutter who is currently running the QA team in Shanghai from Hawaii while his kids get to spend time with their grandparents.
Beyond flexible work, there’s remote work, where workers just work from home as their default. And it really works! For example, our media engineering team is spread out all over the United States: there’s Toby who works out of his house in Philadelphia, Michael working on media projects from New Haven, Adam leading the charge from L.A. You can learn more about our engineers and what their work environments are like by following our Meet the Engineer blog series.
Having the right tools to support these workstyles is very important. First, you need to keep distributed teams connected–and it’s extra helpful to have all communications across one platform. That’s why Biba supports all-in-one communication, combining meetings, video conferencing and chat into one tool.
It doesn’t matter where you are, all you need is Biba and you can chat, call, meet with whoever you need to get your work done.
