I have had the opportunity of working from home for many years. It has always been part-time, however I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Just having that independence allows me to get a lot more done. I try not to allow distractions, I stay focused and I make my hours successful.
There are a lot of companies now that allow their employees to work from home. And that is a great thing. Many of my friends are given the opportunity to work in a virtual setting at home. They are still communicating with the co-workers; however they are in their own home. If you feel comfortable with your employer, address them on the issue of allowing you to work from home. You would be surprised how many companies are actually doing this. I am going to list just a few good reasons why employers should consider allowing employees to work from home.
First of all, it will save a lot on office space, utilities and rental fees. Not only that, think about the office supplies used throughout a week. If your company shares in snacks for the team, there’s another big savings
Think about the time many employees may spend commuting. I live in the DC area and I tell you many of my friends spend an hour or two on the road to and from work. Each day is different and brings a lot of frustration to say the least.
Working from home can bring a lot more productivity. You would be surprised how much more work you can do at home. It saves you from all the extra breaks and chit chat you can easily get caught up in at the office.
Being happy and less stressed is a great positive also when employees are given the chance to work from home.
Setting up meetings via Skype, go-to-meeting save so much more time. Useless meetings can drain the life out of you
When employees work at home, they are less likely to be sick. One thing when working from home is you can keep it moving and not be concerned about spreading germs. Unless you are in a state where you just cannot work, you can still keep it moving.
While you can still enjoy taking breaks and vacation when working from home, it may be fewer since you can manage you day and time to allow a refreshing.
Working from home is just plain and simple, enjoying the perks of being at home as well as being productive and making your company proud to have you on their team. As companies see other companies being successful and still have quality employees, I am sure more will be giving the opportunities of some type of work at home, virtual or telecommute schedule. If you feel confident you can make a valid point in sharing great insight to your employer about working from home, what do you have to lose? Draw up a plan and highlight how it can be a great assistance for the company. You may be surprised what may happen.
