Why I love working from home

March 1, 2017 Kellie Hiatt

I love working from home. Now that I’ve experienced the flexibility that working remotely provides, I can’t imagine being required to be in an office every day. (Talk about a solid retention strategy!) As a natural extrovert, an office environment can be pretty distracting when I really need to focus. So I feel fortunate to have flexibility in where and how I work. This flexibility has helped to increase my productivity and efficiency. And the ability to work from an office or at home also enables a great work-life balance for me. (Talk about a win-win) Working remotely might feel a bit scary if you’re new to the game, but Appirio uses cloud technology and has awesome onboarding and HR programs that very quickly eliminate those fears.

With all that said, it was no surprise to see Appirio named to FlexJobs’ annual list of the 100 Top Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs. Appirio has a long history of offering flexible work and it’s fundamental to how we operate. The type of environment  needed to feel engaged at work is specific to each individual so flexibility gives people the option to shape their own Worker Experience.  Are you interested in flexible work?

About the Award

This list is based on an analysis of over 47,000 companies and their telecommuting job posting histories in the FlexJobs database during 2016. Appirio is one of 100 companies that had the highest number of telecommuting job openings on the FlexJobs site in 2016. To be considered for this list, the jobs offered by these companies had to be telecommuting-friendly — either allowing for candidates to work entirely remotely, or at least part of the time. Appirio offers both types of flexible work options.
