Great news from Abu Dhabi this week that people will now be able to officially work from home for the first time with the introduction of a new licensing system that drops the requirement for an office or workspace for two years. It’s going to be a huge boost for entrepreneurs/start-ups who can now officially join the mobile/flexible working movement which is spreading globally.
Research shows that mobile working – the ability to work from anywhere at any time without having to be based in an office – delivers great life-work balance and can boost productivity by up to 30%. And of course, there are other benefits to mobile/flexible working. Just think if more companies in the UAE embraced the movement of the impact of reduced traffic on the road! How much happier would staff be if they didn’t have to sit in traffic on Sheikh Zayed Road for instance when they’re trying to get home to Sharjah. Happy workers make for a more stable, engaged and productive workforce. It also means that companies are likely to recruit the top talent around who are now demanding flexible/mobile working solutions.
