People used to think working from home was a luxury. Us long-time remote and freelance workers heard from friends and relatives how “lucky” we were to be able to work from home all the time!
Are you a freelancer? Have you recently started working from home because of the COVID-19 outbreak? Either way, working from home is a distinct experience from working in an office setting.
When staff begin to lose enthusiasm for their job or even the company they work for, the results can be low productivity, a negative effect on other staff and customers, and eventually the hassle of recruiting new employees when the unhappy member leaves their position.
For many people, such as young parents and people with disabilities, telecommuting can be a godsend. So, what are its advantages and disadvantages?
Working from home is becoming a new way of working. Rather than wake up, commute to an office block and sit at a desk until it’s time to commute back home, people are choosing to either start their own at-home business, freelance, or become a remote worker.
Most people who choose to work from home do so because they enjoy the flexible schedule and the freedom of working in their own personal space, however, many freelancers think they are stuck at the kitchen table or on the living room couch to do their work.
If you’ve never worked from home or set up your own home office, you may be shocked at how hard it is to stay focused until you actually sit down to work.
