The Advantages of the Traditional Corporate Structure

As much as the world seems to be moving rather rapidly in the direction of remote work and even altogether remotely run businesses, it’s going to be a while yet until the traditional corporate structure dissipates completely, if that’s ever going to happen at all. This is because there are still some mega advantages to be had within the typically traditional corporate structure, making for one of the main reasons why permanently employed staff tends to earn more money than remote workers with similar qualifications and skills.

Less Dynamically-Moving Parts

When permanently employed staff comes in to work in the morning and clocks in, there’s a certain psychological factor which kicks into play. Everyone knows that they are now at a place of work and any problems they may be facing in their personal lives or elsewhere have nothing to do with the current situation. If there is work to be done, the work gets done, no matter what’s going on in the outside world, beyond the outermost walls of the office building.

This is definitely an advantage the traditional corporate structure enjoys over the emerging professional working environment that takes the form of more remote work and professional collaboration sans the typical, physical office environment, as there are just less independently moving parts to have to keep an eye on.

Accessible Micro-Management

When all your employees have clocked in to work, you know exactly where everyone is at any given time, or at least you have a very good idea of where you might find them within a very short space of time should you need to brief them about something, get something from them or ask them something. That’s a micro-management dream, not in the sense that one should aspire to deploy the micro-management style in their management of their employees, but rather in the sense that should the need arise for a situation which calls for a bit of micro-management, it’s quick and easy to facilitate.

With remote workers on the other hand, at the worst of times you pretty much rely on the integrity of the worker with regards to workflow elements like when they’re going to read the next email you send them and when they’re going to act on it and eventually reply.

Clearly-Defined Workplace Regulations

It’s hard to police remote workers, no matter how diligent they may be, especially with regards to the code of conduct which forms a professional part of your corporation. When workers are part of the traditional corporate structure on the other hand, they’re always within earshot or within sight of what the workplace regulations are, prompting them to at least have to make the effort to conform to all the parameters put into place to uphold the corporate identity you’re trying to work towards.

Otherwise while there are definitely advantages to the newer, more progressive way of operating the modern day corporate structure, the traditional corporate structure definitely still has its place and I reckon for as long as the mere entity that is the corporation exists, it will always have a place.
