BitPay decides to let all employees work from home permanently

Bitcoin (BTC) payment and wallet company BitPay has chosen to take its company’s working atmosphere remote, permanently.

A poll from within the company revealed: “85% of employees preferred to work from home and felt they were more productive,” said a Sept. 15 statement. “This insight coupled with the continuation in business, is a main reason the company chose to make working from home permanent.”

As a niche largely held within the digital world, the crypto space often sees companies and individuals working remotely. A growing trend in light of COVID-19 prevention measures, remote work cuts out commute time, as well as serves up added flexibility and lower company costs stemming from renting a work space. Cons, however, include less face-to-face interaction among staff and a greater need for trusting employees.

Andrew Kelin, marketing director at BitPay explained: 

“It took a bit of adjusting to working from home because I am an outgoing and social person […]  I am grateful to have this flexibility and my team is able to collaborate and work together as if we were side-by-side.”
