When we think about working from home, we think bed, coffee and pyjamas. However, with technology moving at such a fast pace, the restrictions on where you get the job done are shifting constantly. We share five benefits of working from home…
1. More time with the family
It’s not always easy juggling family life and work. But if you work from home, at least your family know you’re always around, even if they can’t disturb you.
2. Less distractions
Working in an office full of people can be very distracting, with phones ringing, radios playing, and people constantly asking questions. Working from home is much quieter, allowing you to be more productive and get more work done.
Does anyone really need an excuse to redecorate? Working from home gives you the perfect opportunity to convert a living space into a home office. Use contrasting tones to give the room a dual functionality feel.
4. Avoid traffic
No one really enjoys sitting in traffic, especially when the power is out due to constant load shedding in South Africa. Working from home completely avoids peak hour traffic and you get to save on petrol!
5. Less stress
Even if your job is stressful and pressurised, it’s much easier to handle the pressure when you’re in your own environment and you don’t have to take on other people’s stress on top of yours.
