Working from home, either part-time or full-time, is a wonderful option for many, but not all workers. It depends on the type of job and work at hand and whether there is support and encouragement from the employer to do so; as often found in ROWE (Results Oriented Work Environment) companies, which are increasing in popularity and mainstreaming with each passing day. Another big factor is whether the home work environment is conducive to remote working as far as satisfying all technical and equipment requirements, as well as whether it is worth the cost and effort to make it so.
But even when we presume that all these factors lend themselves to a ready and supported home-working arrangement, and the set-up and IT is fine, the employer is in total support. As a result, satisfactory results are not dependent on daily commutes to a central office/headquarters with required presenteeism standards, because there are still some important factors to keep in mind that point to the fact that home-based working isn’t always an automatic, consistently reliable Shangri-la. In fact, in many instances, this convenient, time-and-money saving home-working measure is counter-intuitively unsatisfactory or unworkable, despite the few apparent advantages.
Working from home for an employer, as a solo-preneuring, contractor or remote worker, is a double-edged sword. Some people simply need the triggering mechanism and discipline of getting out and about, to work out of an office in order to give it their best focus. Others have a low tolerance and/or lack the necessary discipline to ward off the slew of inevitable interruptions that working from home poses – from a sluggish crank-up to tackle the day’s workload, to succumbing to a myriad of distractions such as TV or other happenings that pop up and wobble the daily work-life rhythm. Working from home definitely has a few upsides, but it’s simply not the answer for all people or situations.
