The so-called “new normal” paved the way to massive work-at-home setups initiated by companies trying to make it through the pandemic.
While some may not think of it as an ideal workplace setup, there is no denying it has several benefits.
What’s better than a casual Friday? Casual Friday every day, that’s what! never worrying about not wearing your office uniform is definitely a benefit in our book.
Money saved because of no commute, no office lunch and 15 minute coffee breaks, no trips to the mall to watch a movie, shop, or eat, and no more need to wash office uniforms – yep, definitely a benefit.
Spending time with your fur baby all day, no doubt, a benefit we can’t say no to.
Who’d say no to waking up 1 minute before your shift starts, definitely not us!
Working from home is a welcome rest from the daily commute (and all the horror it brings!).
Not waiting for lunch time to eat is definitely a benefit, gaining weight from doing so, doubtful.
Working remotely is perfect for people who doesn’t want to spend hours working in an office. It’s not for everyone but those who do find remote work swear by its benefits. Here are a few of them:
- You Can Design Your Own Office
Being able to work remotely means working from home so you can decorate and design your office based on your own preference. There’s no pressure in ensuring you only put up work-approved décor so you get to go crazy with however way you want your space to look like.
