Now that we have established how large the percentage of people working at home is lately, it clearly is the new era of employment – at the comforts of our home.
The brouhaha over Yahoo!’s latest policy on ending employees’ work-at-home standing riled a lot of work-at-home workers who thought otherwise.
Has Yahoo! gone backwards to the stone age?
Working at home not only increases productivity (I didn’t even realize I’ve been working for 10 hours straight!) but drive us to work harder. When companies give their employees the option to work at home they will all the more gain an intensely loyal, hard-working employee.
Communication and collaboration will be always be important in the work place but then if the absolute best place to work is at work – everything else will follow. Working at home requires less desk space, less electricity and less rent. Therefore, everything else is inexpensive.
There are other kinds of jobs that are best done at home, too. Others are operational, some are rather creative. Research said that IT staff, sales representatives, business development executives, marketing and copywriting staff were most likely to work at home. If you think you belong to this industry, I certainly cannot see why you can’t join in the workforce – at home.
