BitPay, the world’s largest provider of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency payment services, announced a permanent work-from-home policy today. BitPay recently conducted an internal survey to gather feedback from employees on working remote. The results revealed 85% of employees preferred to work from home and felt they were more productive. This insight coupled with the continuation in business, is a main reason the company chose to make working from home permanent.
"It took a bit of adjusting to working from home because I am an outgoing and social person," said Andrew Klein, Marketing Director. "I am grateful to have this flexibility and my team is able to collaborate and work together as if we were side-by-side."
With more than 80 employees across three global offices including Atlanta, Amsterdam and Buenos Aires, BitPay employees are embracing the improved work life balance. Everyone from the office in Argentina completed the survey and every employee shared that not only do they prefer to work at home but they are more productive. The flexibility to work from home offers a competitive advantage in recruiting and retaining employees.
