Since lockdown working from home has become increasingly popular with many companies choosing to keep remote working instead of moving back into office spaces.
Many people have embraced this change and for a lot of businesses, it has helped to create a more positive and productive work environment, improving employee happiness and giving more freedom and flexibility.
This is because working from home allows for greater flexibility for employees. It removes the need to commute which is often stressful and can take a long time and instead gives them the opportunity to work from their own home or a chosen space.
This can be much more calming and relaxing for many which can help reduce stress and also allows employees to stay comfortable and content in their own homes.
Employees are able to take breaks when needed, work outside traditional office hours or rearrange their day depending on their personal commitments, such as childcare, which can remove a lot of stress and anxiety about the work day.
This therefore creates happier employees which reflects positively on the entire workforce. Higher job satisfaction can lead to a more productive, driven team who love and enjoy their work and strive to be the best they can and to meet or exceed goals.
Not only this but it can save companies money by removing the need for a large formal office space, meaning funds can be better used elsewhere to further promote a positive work environment. This could include purchasing more efficient software, upgrading employee computers etc..
Working from home can also reduce distractions. Although being in your own home may seem more distracting than in the office, the social aspect of the office is removed meaning people will be more focused on concentrating on their work than socialising.
