Gabriel Nimrod is on a mission to transform the way the world works. As the co-founder and CEO of BeeRemote, he is helping companies around the globe adopt remote and flexible work solutions that empower their employees to be more productive, engaged, and connected. In this interview, Gabriel shares his insights on the future of work and how BeeRemote is leading the charge.
How does BeeRemote work?
At BeeRemote, our mission is to make remote work accessible and convenient for everyone. Our platform offers a unique solution that helps companies provide their workers with the resources they need to do their jobs effectively, while also fostering a sense of community and collaboration. Through our platform, employees from partner companies can request the use of thousands of physical workspaces in more than 1,000 cities around the world. This enables them to meet and collaborate with colleagues who live nearby or schedule meetings with clients in a secure location. We understand that remote work comes with unique challenges, such as isolation and disengagement, and our platform is designed to address those challenges and create a more productive, connected, and happy workforce.
What inspired you to create BeeRemote?
A few years ago, while I was living in Singapore, I worked from home a lot before remote working became popular, as it is now due to the pandemic. While I loved the flexibility of working from home, I also started to feel isolated and disconnected from the world. I realized that I wasn’t going out often, dressing up, or meeting people, and it started to affect my mental health. That’s when I realized that if you look at remote work for the long term, it must be balanced and the option to work from great office environments is essential to uplift and support remote workers.
I learned that working in an office environment was not just about productivity, but also about social interaction and happiness. I understand the true meaning and idea of remote work, and the option to balance it is really important. So, together with a fantastic team, we created BeeRemote to address the challenges of remote work and make it more accessible and convenient for everyone. With a passion for innovation and a drive to make a difference, I wanted to provide remote workers with the resources they need to do their jobs effectively, while also ensuring that they feel connected to their teams and the world. Our platform offers a solution that is not only flexible but also customizable, making it possible for companies to offer their employees the best possible remote work experience.
What was the most diﬃcult part of your experience in the early beginnings?
Establishing and managing an early-stage startup is always a challenge, but doing so during a global pandemic was particularly daunting. We had to pivot quickly and adapt to a rapidly changing landscape. However, I’m proud to say that our team rose to the occasion, and we were able to find creative solutions to the challenges we faced. Despite the difficulties, we were able to launch BeeRemote successfully and provide a valuable service to companies and remote workers around the world.
What sets BeeRemote apart from other remote work platforms?
BeeRemote is unique in that we offer a physical space for remote workers to work and connect with their colleagues. We believe that face-to-face interaction is critical for building strong, collaborative teams, and our platform provides that opportunity.
We are building customized solutions for each client based on the exact needs of their employees. This helps our clients to achieve their goals while ensuring that their employees have the resources they need to work effectively.
Moreover, BeeRemote is the only true global solution out there. We provide flexible solutions in every corner of the world. This means that our clients can access over 25,000+ desks, meeting rooms, and offices around the world, making it easier for their employees to work from anywhere, at any time.
What are you most proud of regarding your business?
Our amazing team has created a truly global solution that supports companies all over the world. That is quite amazing and makes every day colorful! I can start my day with a call to a supplier in Tokyo, continue to a zoom meeting with a client in Berlin, and have a meetin with our team in Prague. For someone who really likes traveling and exploring different cultures, it’s a dream come true. Being able to provide that same experience to our clients and their remote workers is something that makes me incredibly proud. We’re helping to connect people and businesses across the globe and to break down barriers that might have prevented that in the past.
What do you think is the future of work, and how do you see BeeRemote playing a role in that future?
I believe that remote work will become even more prevalent in the coming years. It provides flexibility, convenience, and access to a global talent pool. As more companies adopt hybrid and remote work models, the need for flexible workspace solutions will only increase.
At the same time, I think it’s important to recognize that remote work comes with unique challenges, such as isolation and disengagement. BeeRemote is committed to addressing those challenges and making remote work accessible and convenient for everyone.
We help companies reduce their real estate costs and long-term lease commitments, which is especially important during the current global recession. Our platform provides a cost-effective solution for companies to provide their employees with the resources they need to work effectively, while also helping them to save money.
What are some of the emerging trends in remote work and how is BeeRemote adapting to those changes?
One interesting trend we have observed is that more and more employees are leaving expensive cities for the suburbs, where they can have bigger houses and cheaper rent while still keeping their jobs. However, many companies are not able to establish offices in those areas, especially when their employees are spread out across different locations. At BeeRemote, we offer a solution to this problem by providing flexible office spaces for each of our clients’ employees, no matter where they are based. This allows them to work from a professional and convenient space, rather than from their homes, whenever they need to. We believe that this trend will continue to grow, and we are committed to helping companies adapt to this new reality by providing customized remote work solutions.
What do you think about the traditional 9-5 working?
In today’s fast-paced world, people want the flexibility to work on their own terms and be in control of their own schedule. The traditional 9-5 working model is becoming increasingly outdated, as it can be extremely time-consuming and stressful for employees who have to deal with long commutes, traffic, and other distractions. This is why remote work is becoming more
popular, as it allows employees to work from the comfort of their own homes or in flexible workspaces that are located closer to home.
I believe that employees should have the freedom to choose where they work and when they work. With BeeRemote we help to remove the barriers of traditional office spaces and allow for a more flexible work environment. Additionally, companies can save on real estate costs, reduce logistics, and reach a larger pool of talent by embracing a more flexible work environment.
As we conclude our interview with Gabriel Nimrod, it’s clear that BeeRemote is more than just a platform for remote workspaces. It’s a solution that is changing the way we work and connect with each other. With its commitment to providing face-to-face interactions and creating a sense of community among remote workers, BeeRemote is paving the way for a new era of work that is more flexible, more productive, and more fulfilling.
We thank Gabriel Nimrod for sharing his insights and vision for the future of work. With BeeRemote, he is truly making a difference in the lives of remote workers around the world, one workspace at a time.
