Times have changed and thanks to technological advances more and more people have the opportunity to work from home. Either for a company or for their own company. This practice is defined as “teleworking” or remote work.
It is possible that you have already had the opportunity to work from your home or that in the near future your professional life will put this option on the table. Today at ThriveGlobal, I’ll explain the great advantages of this modern work system that, a person (specially mums), can get benefits from.
Major advantages of working at home:
1. The best way to be close to your family:
Working from home full-time or part-time can help you spend more time with your partner, children and other family members, since the space you share with your family is the same one you use to work. There are many programs on the internet which provide workers (specially moms) the opportunities to do home based business. The perfect example of such kind of opportunity is “trading for women”
2. Less distractions:
Many workers find it difficult to concentrate on their workplaces due to noise, lack of privacy or simply because there are roommates and work space elements that get their attention away. Working from home is a good option for those who need to create their own working conditions in order to be focused.
3. Flexible hours:
There are those who find their moment of maximum productivity before the sun rises or in the early hours of the morning. For this type of workers, home based job is a great advantage since it allows them to organize their work schedules with complete freedom.
4. Forget about the costumes:
There are many articles and experts that recommend home based jobs to have a similar routine to those who have to leave the house to go to the office or any other place of work. However, those who work from home have the freedom to decide whether or not they meet this type of premises, that is, they can work in their pajamas or suit and tie if they wish, an option that is not available to other employees of the company.
5. The traffic jams are over: Most of the population lives in cities where traffic is usually a common problem, mainly in the hours before and after the workday. One of the great advantages of working from home is not having to face the monumental traffic jams that lose so much time, energy and money to other workers.
