Work From Home-Be Your Own Boss
Working from home is more common than ever, with technology continually disrupting the landscape of how and where we can do our jobs. Working out of your home is a mixed blessing, though. There are certain benefits that any worker would love.
But there are some things that might surprise you about what it’s like when you don’t have to go into the office every day. While the benefits are numerous, only you can determine whether they suit your needs and personality. Considering the most prominent rewards of working from home can help you make the decision that is right for you.
Control Over Income
Many people choose not to work from home because they worry about making a consistent, livable income. While this is something home business owners need to consider, the reality is that a home business can allow you to earn what you're worth, and more than a job. As a work from home employee you set your income.
Work/Home Life Balance
Waking up at 3 a.m. for a sick child can stress out an employee who enjoys his job. However, with a (flexible) work-from-home environment, an employee can more fluidly navigate being pulled from both ends – home and work. There are many advantages of working from home.
Many people who work from home claim to be more productive because they're
not in a loud environment or distracted by co-workers.
A Better Working Atmosphere
The chances are many office staff will begin to annoy each other at some point. Any pent up resentment against other employees’ annoying working habits would no longer be an issue.
Your Schedule Can Be Your Own
A lot of the work that can be done remotely nowadays can also be done on a flexible schedule. So, night owls, rejoice! You can still put in your eight hours without starting at 8 AM.
If you do need to work specific hours, you’re sure to still have some break time. Even if you have just 10 minutes, you can do something that just wouldn’t be possible in a traditional office: bust those samba move or take a refreshing power nap. You’re guaranteed to come back feeling more refreshed than you would after 10 minutes at your desk surfing Facebook.
Employees who have workplace flexibility and control over their own schedule are happier employees. When they are allowed to customize their schedule based on their own personal and professional needs, workers exhibit more gratitude and, in turn, become more invested in the company and its bottom line.
