The topic of remote work and job flexibility are huge points of discussion in the world of sales representatives and distributors. What studies have concluded is this is a mutually beneficial change. Companies allowing their employees to work from home allows them to have autonomy and flexibility making them happier and more motivated. The numbers of work at home agents and employees are increasing every year.
Advertising Speciality Institute Magazine (ASI) just wrote an article on this expanding development in the sales and business community and asked Angela Chryplewicz to weigh in with her personal experience. As the CEO/Owner at Lasting Impressions, Inc. Angela was quoted in this article “Changing Needs of Distributor Sales Reps”, written by Jean Erickson. Angela shared her experiences in bridging the gap of distance through digital technology. She shared some of the key elements that kept her team running. Many companies use different tools and software to keep the team collaborating and communicating. Lasting Impressions uses “Slack” as it’s main communication hub. “Slack” is a cloud-based platform that messages in open spaces called channels. In this article Angela was quoted:
“It keeps everyone connected,” says CEO and owner Angela Chryplewicz. “Slack allows us to stay on top of our corporate news, and is a central place where employees can reach out to each other for any kind of help.”
When reports show that 66% of current companies allow remote work and nearly 20% fully remote this kind of information and understanding of customer service, staying connected with co-workers and still being efficient is the way of the future. It makes for happier customers, happier employees, and better overall productivity. Angela Chryplewicz and Lasting Impressions are helping lead the way to the future.
