How do Virtual Workplaces help in Woman Empowerment?
The short answer is that it helps women get better jobs, and better work-life balance and also helps them do multiple things in the short time that they are allowed.
The long answer is the following:
1. Virtual Workplaces can be accessed from anywhere in the world and yet they bring people closer to each other.
2. Virtual Workplaces allow flexible working hours and save more than just hours in a single day that an average wurkr(worker) spends commuting. The environmental benefits of avoiding daily traffic come along with this.
