What is a Remote-First Company?

A remote first company is a company that prioritizes remote work and has structured its business and operations around the idea that team members can work effectively from anywhere. Remote first companies may have some employees who work in a traditional office setting, but the majority of their team members work remotely, often from home or other locations.

Remote first companies typically have systems and processes in place to support remote work, including tools and technologies for communication and collaboration, as well as policies and guidelines for remote work. They may also provide resources and support for remote workers, such as training on how to work effectively from home and assistance with setting up a home office.

Remote first companies often cite the ability to attract and retain top talent from around the world and the potential for cost savings as key benefits of this approach. However, remote work also has its challenges, such as the need to ensure that team members have the necessary resources and support to be productive, and to create a sense of community and connection among team members who may not be physically located in the same place.
