1. Flexibility and Work-Life Balance:

One of the key reasons why we prioritize remote working for our employees is the flexibility it offers. By allowing individuals to work from different locations, Ymir employees have the freedom to design their workdays according to personal preferences and responsibilities. This fosters a healthy work-life balance, and it helps employees to better manage their professional and personal commitments. 

2. Talent Acquisition and Retention:

Embracing remote work expands Ymir's talent pool exponentially. With geographical boundaries irrelevant, employees can be recruited based on their skills and expertise rather than their proximity to a physical office which enables us to attract top talent leading to a more dynamic and inclusive work environment. 

3. Enhanced Productivity:

Contrary to common misconceptions, remote work has been proven to enhance productivity levels. By eliminating excessive commuting and unproductive office distractions, employees can focus more on their tasks and have more control over their work environment. 

4. Global Perspective and Cultural Diversity:

Having a distributed team is an opportunity for Ymir to embrace cultural diversity and gain a global perspective. Employees working from different locations bring unique experiences, perspectives, and insights to the table.
