The Advantages of Being a Remote Worker in Singapore

Zann Lee

If you are in Singapore, and you wish to work remotely from home or elsewhere rather than in an office, then it is now more possible than ever before because of current technology. You now have PCs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and other such devices that can connect online and allow you to do work via teleconferencing, chat, VoIP, and cloud computing.

 

However, remote working is not something that's limited to home-based jobs. It is also not typically limited by location either. It can also be described as mobile working because as long as you have access to an Internet connection and the right device, you can potentially work anywhere, from a coffee shop to a restaurant.

 

Advantages for Working Remotely in Singapore

 

There is a myriad of advantages when it comes to being a remote worker in Singapore, especially when you consider all the time you can devote to working that used to be reserved for commuting and self-preparation. To wit:

 

  1. A Remote Worker is not Beholden by Weather Changes: As long as his Internet connection is working and he has a power source in the area, a remote worker should be able to accomplish his job whether facing rain, floods, and what-have-you. Because the Internet was developed specifically to work even when its relays are taken down, remote workers can thrive even in times of emergency.

 

  1. A Remote Worker Has Fewer Distractions: Sure, the Internet, video sites, and social media hubs are distractions in and of themselves, but for the most part a remote worker can accomplish his goals because he's able to get away from overhead conversations at the water cooler, ringing phones, irate micromanaging bosses, multiple memos, and so forth. He has more focus on dealing with detailed data work.

 

  1. A Remote Worker does not need to Commute: This type of employee can save much money working at home or wherever he wants by not having to commute to work. He will not have to waste time with public transportation or budget money for gas and parking if he drives a car. He is also doing his part in protecting the environment by reducing carbon emissions.

 

  1. A Remote Worker Is Always Ready: A remote worker only needs to log into his work account or company website on his computer, laptop, or even smartphone to get things done. He does not have to dress up in order to get ready for work. Many people spend more than an hour every day getting cleaned up and dressed for the office. Meanwhile, a worker is ready as soon as he has Internet access turned on.

 

  1. A Remote Worker Is More Flexible: A remote worker mom should be able to work from home through this setup. No other type of job allows mothers to take care of their family while at the same time having the means to support them, whether she is a single mom, the breadwinner of the family, or a mother who works in tandem with the father.

 

There are many reasons why remote working in Singapore can be quite practical whether you are a freelancer taking on multiple jobs from different companies or a regular employee that can handle jobs on the go.
