Abstract:Our knowledge about distributed teams is continuously growing. Working remotely has been applauded thus far, as it would lead to more efficient work processes and reduce organizational costs. However, whereas the organizational benefits of remote work have been emphasized in previous studies, little is yet known about how it influence employees and their families. Because organizations start embracing remote working although the exact pros and contras are still unclear, more research is needed on the impact of remote work on working life and how it are related to job satisfaction. The goal of this research is to get a better understanding about two important issues amongst those working remotely namely: job satisfaction and work-life balance issues. Additionally the influence of cultural differences on these topics is researched. Furthermore, an internal analysis will be executed at GoalGorilla to examine to which extent they are ready for hiring fully remote employees.
