Nowadays, it is very common to work remotely either from home or from a different place. There are many companies that are supporting and encouraging remote work, especially in technology sector. Remote work comes with various benefits to both the company and to the employees: Companies can pay less to remote workers compared to regular workers and the employees could work from the comfort of their homes without worrying about the professional office environment.

One of the major advantages of remote work is increased flexibility of work and work-life balance. The employees could work according to the time they think is right. Some prefers to wake up early and complete the daily work by evening, while others prefer to work till late at night. Remote work can allow the employees to create a flexible work schedule. The employees work from home, so it becomes easier for them to focus on their hobbies alongside their work and give time for their personal life and families. 

Another advantage of remote working is the usage of virtual communication tools and collaboration tools like Zoom and Google Workspace. It has also become easier to manage and communicate with a team of multiple people. In the physical environment, it becomes difficult to manage a lot of people, but that is not the case with online work. The communication between the employees of different division also become easier, thus improving their efficiency. The productivity of the employees is greatly increased through online communication as the time gap between communication from planners to execution division is reduced. 

With remote work, a company only need to maintain few offices which handles the very important work. The rest of the employees work from their respective homes, so there is a huge decrease in cost of maintenance of offices. The electricity costs, water costs, and maintenance costs is almost reduced to none as there are very few people coming to offices. This also removes the unnecessary expenditure of building canteens. The employees do not need to spend on train tickets or bus tickets as they can work from their home, and it also become easier for the employees who live in places which are far from the workplace. Remote work means the company invests very little in physical equipment and building. This impact the earning of local carpenter, interior designers, and real estate businesses. 

A workplace consumes energy equivalent to several houses. The carbon footprint left by even a smaller office is enormous. Air conditioners, computer servers, and other electronic devices are few of many things that emit carbon compounds into the atmosphere. With the decrease in people coming to an office, it can be significantly reduced. The same is the case with the energy consumption of the workplace as hundreds computer systems and other devices will no longer be needed if the employees are working from their home. It is also true that the energy usage of the employees' home is increased as a result of setting up a working environment.

Remote work is a wonderful method to fight the carbon emission and huge energy consumption, but it also comes with some challenges. Maintaining the productivity of the employees and keeping them motivated is crucial and it needs several trained managers and other managing assistants. The employees may also feel isolated and get demotivated from working alone without any physical interaction with colleagues, so it is important to conduct regular survey and events that will keep the employees motivated. 

One of the major problems faced in online office environments is the threat to security. It becomes necessary to put most efforts to secure the networks on which the virtual office run and assigning security codes and levels for confidential files and projects. 

The idea of an virtual offices sound like a dream, but with the help of modern technologies and systems, it has come into reality. There are many benefits to it and also it comes with a few problems, but if it means that we can contribute to saving the environment even a little, then it is worth giving all the efforts into preventing the unnecessary emission by physical workplaces.
