How remote work is increasing productivity and levelling the playing field

Our Founder & Managing Director

'Remote work levels the playing field for businesses, people and communities in rural Australia'

Jo Palmer is motivated by the social and economic benefits that remote work provides for marginalised parts of the community. She believes that your location, gender, physical ability or ethnicity should not determine the work you do. She is also passionate about the environmental, social and fiscal benefits that organisations experience through hiring remotely.

Her recognition includes 2019 AgriFutures Rural Women's Award National winner, 2018 Crow Awards Startup Superstar and Young Entrepreneur Awards, 2017 Soar Awards Regional Contribution winner and 2017 Finalist in the Regional Australia Institute's Lightbulb Moments and Regional Online Heroes.

Remote Work Benefits

Remote work stimulates local economies, mental health outcomes are improved and rural communities can help to drought and disaster-proof themselves. Simultaneously, businesses are hiring the best talent, they are reducing their carbon footprint and their teams can live where they choose, reducing the 'metro-stress' they may be experiencing "

Jo Palmer, Founder and MD

Economic Development 

When workers are geographically dispersed, so is their impact on communities, industry innovation, and the global economy.



Remote jobs create less waste and shorter commutes, which mean lighter carbon footprints.

Diversity and inclusion

Remote work is the catalyst for diversity and inclusion in any organisation, it creates equal opportunity.

Work-life satisfaction

Flexible workforces create an environment that not only attracts and retains the best talent, but their workers are also safer emotionally, socially, physically, and mentally.
