Remote Work Models

Remote Work Models


  • The first known remote worker was an employee of NASA in the early 70’s.
  • In 1996, the National Telecommuting Initiative was launched in the U.S. to promote remote work within the government. As a result, Congress approved the use of telecommuting in Federal agencies.

Type-1: Centralized Office + Occasional Work-from-Home

  • With this model, employees are required to work primarily from the office, but with the occasional work-from-home option.
  • This model is attractive to just about anyone, but may be especially beneficial for busy parents or those who live further away from the office.
  • The number of remote hours varies from company to company, but most who have this policy allocate at least one full remote day per week.

Type-2: Centralized Office + Work-from-Anywhere

  • This model takes the flexibility from type-1 and turns it up a notch.
  • Companies who subscribe to this policy give their employees freedom to choose where they work, whether that be the office, their couch, a coffee shop, or far-away lands.
  • Any place with a stable Internet connection and quality coffee should suffice.

Type-3: Fully Remote Work Without a Centralized Office

  • This model is by far the most advanced remote work policy a company can embody, as team members are distributed all over the world, across different countries, and time zones.
  • Companies that use it have most likely been remote since day one with no prior physical office. So, leaders who are in the early stages of starting their venture, this model is a great one to consider.
