Putting Team Member Well-Being First: ChoiceLocal’s Innovative Approach to Remote Work Benefits
ChoiceLocal is a digital marketing agency that’s leading the way when it comes to remote work benefits and has been instrumental in being named a Northeast Ohio Top Workplace by Cleveland.com for six years running. We offer a range of exciting options that enable our team members to balance their work and personal lives like never before. While we don’t pay for internet access or in-home office expenses, we do offer a wide range of communication tools and platforms, including Zoom, Slack, and calling and texting apps that allow our team members to stay connected with each other and our client and vendor partners.
But that’s just the beginning. By working remotely, our team members save an estimated 6,100 miles driven to and from work every year, $3,570 in gas and car expenses, and roughly 275 hours per year spent in their car driving to and from work. This gives them more time and energy to deliver exceptional customer service and results to our partners, while also enabling them to prioritize their families, save money and time, and enjoy greater freedom and flexibility in their lifestyles and work hours.
Before the pandemic, we offered two remote days and three in-office days per week, which was considered cutting-edge at the time. When the pandemic hit and the company had to transition to 100% remote work, ChoiceLocal had its best year ever in terms of revenue, profit, and partner satisfaction.
And as the pandemic has shown, remote work is not just a temporary trend, but a permanent shift in how we work. We surveyed our team members and found that they loved the freedom of working from home and wanted to continue with that option. That’s why we’ve taken an innovative approach to remote work, offering a full-time work-from-home option for those who choose it. We also provide regular opportunities for in-person team bonding and community volunteer days, so our team members can stay connected with each other and our partners. This innovative approach has set us apart from our competitors and made us a desirable place for top talent to come and thrive.
ChoiceLocal’s philosophy is simple: as long as you’re meeting your KPIs, delighting our client partners, and being a great team member, where and when you work doesn’t matter. We want to give our team members the freedom to be their best selves both at work and in their personal lives. That’s why we focus on our mission of Help Others and striving to find ways to be generous to our team members and give them the ability to thrive in all areas of their lives.
Overall, if you’re looking for a company that prioritizes your well-being and gives you the freedom and flexibility to do your best work, then ChoiceLocal is the place to be. With our innovative approach to remote work, exciting communication tools and platforms, and generous benefits, we’re leading the way in helping our team members balance their work and personal lives like never before.
