Working from home is not suited to everyone. Some find it hard to remain undistracted, or miss the social aspect of working in an office.
However, there are undoubtedly some big perks associated with being a home-based worker. Here are five of them:
Commuting is a necessary evil for millions of people, but homeworkers avoid it completely.
In some cases, this means freeing up two or more hours per day, plus less stress, fewer carbon emissions, and less frequent illnesses picked up from crowded public transport.
Homeworkers can access their own kitchens. This means it’s easy to eat healthy food at the same time as avoiding takeaway prices and the temptations of fast food chains. Of course not every homeworker takes full advantage of this perk, but it’s there for those who choose to!
While we wouldn’t try to suggest that childcare and full-time homeworking go hand in hand, life is certainly simpler for the home-based parent (or pet owner), even if it just means paying for fewer hours of childminding thanks to the lack of commute.
Not every homeworker would admit it, but quite a few work in their pajamas, or in comfortable sweatpants. Shorts and flip-flops in the summer are also far more comfortable than a business suit.
Although some “old school” bosses subscribe to the outdated idea that homeworkers skive off, there’s actually a lot of time wasted in typical office environments, due to everything from water cooler gossip to fire drills.
Homeworkers get up, switch their laptops on, and start work. No wonder that a Stanford study found them to be 22% more productive!
