Top 10 Advantages of Working from Home
Updated: Sep 6, 2020
Flexible schedule. You can work whenever you want! Can take breaks and feel no rush to hang up on your family members when they call and go for random walks in the middle of the day. Your hours your choice!
Custom environment. Setup your noise level just the way you want it — somewhere between insanely quiet to being at the front row of a Flosstradamus show.
Cozy clothes. You get to wear those sweatpants from college with the letters peeling off, or the leggings your friends don’t know you own. (And hopefully never will.)
It’s easier to make calls. You won’t have to scramble to find a conference room or deal with a particularly chatty co-worker. (Granted, kids and pets at home can make this tough for some remote employees.)
Knock off some weekend to-do’s. That Mt. Everest laundry pile waiting for you? That thing you set a reminder to get from the store 11 weeks ago? Cross. It. Off.
No office distractions. Avoid co-workers debating the merits of cryptocurrency, sirens wailing outside your window, the AC kicking in as you hide your icicle tears.
Zero commuting. From bed to … bed? Hey I’m not judging, it’s nice.
Save money. Lunch is expensive if you work in a city or downtown. In London it’s not crazy to see a £15 sandwich or £4 coffee. At home, you can save big time by going to the store and preparing food.
Forget crowds and traffic. No stuffing yourself into a rickety transportation tube, having people scuff your new shoes, or walking behind agonisingly slow people who apparently don’t know what a straight line is. (Am I bitter? No … not bitter … )
More time with loved ones. Take care of a sick significant other at home, be ready for your kids earlier in the day, get some extra snuggles in with your doggo, or simply get some quiet time to yourself!
