Working from home and its advantages

Working from home is an opportunity that has recently become profitable with the increasing use of technology and applications that facilitate remote work. So let’s explore the advantages of this new way of working.

Advantages of working at home

First of all, telecommuting can increase productivity. Working in your own home saves you from the distractions of a workplace, such as continuous interruptions. You have your own space, which you can design and modify to your liking, and it’s easier to concentrate, and your most productive moments can be extended and capitalized on. Although that implies a greater capacity for self-management.

Work-life balance needs can be solved by telecommuting. If, at times, you need to care for a loved one and spend more time at home, telecommuting allows you to do so. When your children get sick or if your partner has had an accident and you have to take care of her for a few days, this would certainly be a great option for not abandoning your job.

Linked to this last point, another great advantage is the time flexibility. With a good self-organization and in coordination with the company, you will be able to adapt your work to your rhythm of life and enjoy greater freedom to perform your tasks. And, of course, you can save time: spend those minutes a day that you used to spend in the car or on public transport to sleep a little longer, or get up earlier to exercise, read the press and catch up without having to run or get stuck in traffic.

Finally, absenteeism decreases in people working remotely by up to 31% compared to office employees. This may be because, as we said earlier, at home workers can combine caring for loved ones with work without abandoning either.

What do you think of this, and could it be a good alternative for you?
