RAIDBOXES allows it its employees to work from home for a long time, partially or even completely.

A chance for the home office?
Big names like IBM have been relying on homework for decades. But then the development stagnated considerably - the employees were called back again. The effects of COVID-19 now ensure that the discussion about remote working models is gaining considerable momentum. Besides "Corona" there are many more reasons why some employees and companies choose the home office as their workplace:
- The team cannot find suitable experts located in the immediate vicinity.
- You deliberately want to work from home. Because you can concentrate better there, for example, or you are more flexible in terms of time.
- This is the only way to reconcile your personal, family and work life. For example with small children or with a time-consuming journey to work.
- The company does not have a large local office, it is completely remote or operated from abroad.
Of course not every workstation is suitable for the remote model. But especially in areas such as (online) marketing, software development, support or even sales, most jobs can be done well from home - provided that everyone involved has a little creativity. You can also learn more about this in our advisor to Remote Work.
Cohesion is important
Corona is also making a big mess of the WordPress scene. Not least because of the cancellation of numerous WordCamps. A few days ago the planned WordCamp Europe in Porto was hit. This is painful for all those who are anchored in the community - as well as our employees. Because the physical exchange is an integral part of Open Source and WordPress .
But such meetings can be made up for. Much more important is: We wish you and your loved ones the necessary rest, strength and health in the coming weeks.
