Jobs Work From Home Jobs

The technological age means that nobody works from 9-5 anymore – or, at least, they shouldn’t. Thanks to the new resources available, it is possible to work from home and get as much done as you would if you were working in the office. Before your boss cuts you off with statements like ‘Nobody has the discipline to make an arrangement like that work’ or ‘What if I need to speak to you about something urgent and you’re not here?’, below are three good reasons why employees should be allowed the opportunity to work from home.

Enhance Discipline and Improve Productivity

Most employers will argue that working from home jobs allow for procrastination and aren’t nearly as productive as office jobs. This, however, simply isn’t true. As long as the individual has a quiet working space at home in which to retreat, discipline and productivity levels are sure to rise substantially, exceeding what they would be like in an office environment. Think about those long-winded conversations about your weekend activities that you have with your co-workers in the kitchen. Think about how many times you have been distracted after being forced to listen to a co-worker speaking to a client at the top of their voice? Think about how much time you spend surfing the net when you should be working, all because you are worrying about what’s going on at home? The bottom line is that all of this can be avoided by working remotely.

Customise Your Schedule

Finding a work-life balance is so much simpler when you get to work from home – and there is no reason why you need to work from 9 – 5. Although you do need to make yourself available during these working hours (via Skype, cell phone, email etc.), you also have the freedom to start working earlier or to work later; and, as long as you work a specific number of hours as decided upon by your boss, you need not work these hours all at once. For instance, you can choose to work from 5 am -7 am and then take the kids to school, work from 8 am -12 pm and then visit the grocery store for dinner supplies before fetching the little ones, and then work from 3 pm – 5 pm in order to complete your day. When working from home, you have the freedom to tailor your schedule to work for you.

Reduce Your Travel Costs

Depending on how close you live to your place of work, travel costs can add up very quickly. Whether you take the train or whether you drive to and from work each day, the total is sure to add up to thousands extra every month. Think of the money that you will save by simply opting to work remotely? If your boss provides you with a travel allowance, these obvious savings will be great news for him / her too!
