In recent years, an accelerated transformation has been seen in many environments, including economic, political, and technological, both at the professional and working levels. Within these changes is the working method, as it has adapted to new trends in business models. In the following content, we will focus on two work modalities, on-site work, and remote work.
We know that working on-site or in a traditional way carries out the business idea in the face to face practice while remote work focuses on the performance of the professional activity without the physical presence of the worker in a company. So what do these work models have in common? The answer is simple, its purpose is to increase business productivity, but achieving it’s not at all an easy task. Indeed, it’s necessary for a small or mid-sized company to start growing and expanding with a high level of competitiveness and profitability.
Working on-site and working remotely at the same time, impossible?
If your answer is a definite no, you’re right, it’s not impossible. Recently, it has been widely recognized that both modalities have high productivity rates. That’s why Intugo has implemented both methods in its unique business model. One factor that has influenced its decision making is the commitment to seek new ideas and concepts in order to create opportunities and solve the needs of a society through constant innovation. These two modalities have required two indispensable factors to be able to adapt to the cultural change and the operations or activities carried out in the organization, being these the leadership, and commitment of the workforce.
When both modalities are implemented correctly, great benefits are obtained in the organization, below we will show the most relevant of them:
Achieving the maximum profit with the least possible expenses is one of the most important objectives of companies. Structural costs, as well as printing, logistics, travel management, and transportation, can be reduced by implementing both modalities, on-site, and remote work.
By optimizing your company’s activities, optimal levels of efficiency are achieved, allowing them to be more competitive, profitable, and differentiated in the market by the quality of processes and customer service. It is important to mention that a deficient process generates higher costs and if it’s a core process it decreases competitiveness and eventually affects the company’s profitability.

According to investigations, the creation of a solid organizational culture has an impact on the morale, motivation, satisfaction, and productivity of the entire company.
