WORK from HOME in QUARANTINE
With the World Health Organization elevating the
CORONAVIRUS outbreak from an epidemic to a pandemic, millions of businesses are
now forced to contend with the prospect of managing a completely remote
workforce. Major companies like Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and Google
have already implemented remote work policies for many of their employees.
Let’s be real, no matter where you’re working from,
you’re still doing just that: WORKING.
So, should you work from home or work from the
office? It honestly comes down to what environment you’ll be most effective in,
along with what industry you're in. After all, each person has their own unique
experience with remote working and finding what works and doesn't work.
One person’s productivity booster can be another’s
distracting disaster. Having said that, let’s take a look at some of the
advantages of WORKING from HOME
Schedule. You can take breaks at any moment, feel no rush to hang up on your
family members when they call, and eat lunch at any weird time you want.
Environment. Setup your noise level just the way you want it — somewhere
between insanely quiet to being at the front row of a Comedy show.
Clothes. You get to wear those sweatpants from college with the letters peeling
off, or the leggings your friends don’t know you own.
easier to make calls. You won’t have to scramble to find a conference room or
deal with a particularly chatty co-worker.
off some weekend to-do's. That Mt. Everest laundry pile waiting for you? That
thing you set a reminder to get from the store 11 weeks ago? Cross. It. Off.
Office distractions. Avoid co-workers debating the merits of cryptocurrency,
sirens wailing outside your window, the AC kicking in as you hide your icicle
commuting. It saves a lot of time in commuting from home to office &
vice-versa. In work from home, it just goes from bed to work and too
Money. Meals are expensive if you work in a city or downtown. At home, you can
save big time by going to the store and preparing food.
crowds and traffic. No stuffing yourself into a rickety transportation tube,
having people scuff your new shoes, or walking behind agonizingly slow people
who apparently don’t know what a straight line is.
time with loved ones. Take care of a sick significant other at home, be ready
for your kids earlier in the day, get some extra snuggles in with your pets, or
simply get some quiet time to yourself!!
All these highlights make it easier to WORK from
HOME especially in a period wherein the whole world is facing a pandemic of
CORONAVIRUS. In calamities like these, it is not only beneficial to work from
home & earn livelihood but most importantly save yourself & your family
members from the risk of loosing lives.
