One-fourth of all professional jobs in North America are now remote, and that will soon include positions at SMG Business Services. After much reflection, we have decided to transition most of our employees to an at-home work model. We’re excited about the value this will create for our team and our clients!
Why is SMG going remote?
SMG, our employees, and our clients will begin immediately benefiting from this new work model. Research shows employers can save up to $11,000 per employee who works remotely in some capacity. These are funds SMG can recapture and reinvest into higher priority, client-focused initiatives. Remote work also allows us to expand our talent pool so we can hire based on the best fit for the job. We’re currently recruiting as SMG grows and evolves!
Research also shows savings of up to $4,000 annually for employees who no longer need to worry about expenses related to commuting, lunch, apparel, childcare and more – all with greater time freedom. I don’t know about you, but I’d be much happier if I was able to better balance work and family while saving thousands of dollars each year. I’d be more productive, too.
We’re hoping our employees will love these benefits of working from home, while SMG is better positioned to add new client value and meet every one of your unique needs.
What impact will this have on clients?
Our chief goal of going remote is to shield clients from any increases in business costs.
SMG’s move to remote work will have no impact on clients in terms of availability and quality of service. Our team will remain just as motivated to provide proactive and preventative financial services for our passionate and resilient clients.
SMG’s move to remote work is currently underway. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here for you!
