With more and more people accessing the internet, it is important to ensure your business has a well-kept website that truly mirrors the message you are wanting consumers to receive.

A remote workforce provides a host of relevant benefits and can significantly increase productivity while decreasing overhead costs of nearly any vertical. While it has many names – “work from home,” telecommuting, virtual or e- workers, and mobile professional – the ultimate definition is the same. A remote worker is one that doesn’t report to a brick and mortar location. Remote workers generally stay connected via the Internet and access software, the latter which will vary by occupation.
