At Grow Remote we are passionate about building alliances and forging partnerships with organisations and businesses who share a common goal – to realise the social and economic opportunities remote work can bring to our communities.
We recently announced the exciting news that National Broadband Ireland (NBI) and Grow Remote have joined together to form a partnership. This collaboration is an important step towards realising our mission of making remote work visible and accessible to everyone. Together Grow Remote and NBI will collaborate on initiatives to empower people to work remotely and encourage sustainable community development.
Remote work has the potential to transform and reinvigorate rural and regional communities by opening up access to jobs that can be done from anywhere. David McCourt, Chairman of NBI, said that the partnership with Grow Remote will play a role in making that happen, and highlighted the importance of bringing others on the journey. “We hope to encourage others to join us”, he said.
Our co-founder Tracy Keogh echoed this sentiment when she said “this partnership is reflective of the collaboration that’s happening across the public, private and voluntary sector. It’s one that is needed if we are to accurately identify challenges and build solutions that fulfil the potential of rural Ireland”.
The power of building alliances
At Grow Remote we are passionate about building local communities. To do this we need to build alliances and partnerships with organisations and businesses who share our vision. Today we partner with many organisations from the private, public and non-profit sectors and we want to continue to build this ecosystem as it will be critical if we are to make Ireland best-in-class when it comes to remote working.
This means partnering with organisations like NBI who share our mission of building sustainable local communities. It means bringing together experts and thought leaders such as the members of our Advisory Board. It means building a community of remote employers who understand how to build and run a successful remote-first business, and who are willing to share their knowledge openly. And it means collaborating with organisations who want to enable their employees to work remotely – but who are unsure of how to implement a sustainable and effective model.
By now we are all aware of the benefits of remote work, and we know that it is what most employees want. But we also know there are challenges and it is only through collaboration and partnership that we can successfully address these. As Alexander Graham Bell once said, “Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds”.
Grow Remote offers a range of partnership, corporate membership and engagement opportunities for employers and organisations. Our employer partnership programme includes some of Ireland’s leading remote employers such as Shopify, HubSpot, Ebay, Automattic and Glofox.
