AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bynder, a global tech company and supporter of a flexible and open modern workplace, announces Friday, August 3rd as Global Work Remote Day, and invites businesses around the world to join the movement to work out of the office for a day.

Global Work Remote Day is an extension of Bynder's Remote Week, an initiative launched last summer by Bynder CEO Chris Hall. Bynder locked the doors to all six offices around the world and encouraged employees to log on from environments that made them the most comfortable and productive. Despite rapid growth and expansion, including the recent acquisition of Webdam, Bynder is committed to the benefits of remote and flexible work. Remote Week 2018 will kick off on July 30th and end with Global Work Remote Day on August 3rd, 2018. Bynder encourages other companies and teams across the world to do the same and ditch the desk for the day.

"Remote work is a great exercise for management as it allows managers to focus more on the output of results, versus input," said Ruben Vermaak, Head of Learning and Development at Bynder. "Last year, we issued a survey to employees to evaluate what they liked about working remotely and what they didn't. Some felt more productive and creative, while others missed tools such as dual screens and reliable internet. We made sure to apply those learnings to make this year's Remote Week better and more productive for everyone."

Over a dozen companies including TYPO3, Instant Magazine, Impraise, and Hotjar have already confirmed their participation, embracing the idea of building a more remote-friendly culture and business.

"We're excited to join our friends from Bynder in celebrating this year's Global Work Remote Day," says Daan Reijnders, CEO at Instant Magazine. "Our creative platform creates seamless content experiences for any device, regardless of where readers are. So in the same spirit, on August 3rd, we'll encourage our team to create a seamless virtual workplace from wherever suits them best. I can't wait to see pictures from poolside hammocks and the beach!"

Bynder is also partnering with the community platform WeWork in Amsterdam to provide working spaces for teams that may require in-person collaboration. Across its three locations in Amsterdam, WeWork is giving away a one-month hot desk membership and free trial days to its partners from Bynder.

"At WeWork, we are very happy to support innovative work concepts. We believe that an inspiring work environment and a vibrant community can encourage people to work productively, share ideas and encourage innovation. Therefore, we look forward to welcoming our friends from Bynder into our Amsterdam spaces and connect them with our community of +260.000 members," says Wybo Wijnbergen, General Manager for WeWork Northern Europe.

On August 3rd companies will do business from inspiring places all over the world and share how they work best, using #remoteday to share their work spots across social media channels. More information on Global Work Remote Day and how to take part can be found here.
