Working from home is not a new concept here in America. Millions of people have worked remotely either in their own homes or other places to get their work done. Some have flourished while others have failed (mainly due to low productivity).
During the pandemic, many people started working from home (either by choice or due to office rules). They hop onto their laptop or desktop every day, where they connect with their coworkers about the agenda for the day. Some dress to the nines while others are in their bathrobe and slippers. Whatever strategies they may have, each employee works their own unique way.
And as the days go by, the ‘work from home’ agenda is growing nationwide. Tech companies like Facebook and Google extended their work from home policies for many employees for the rest of the year. Twitter allowed their staff to work from home indefinitely.
Over the course of the past few weeks, many people are opting to stay at home to work until the offices are fully open. Some want to do it choice while others are through their company’s emergency policies. For those that want to work from home longer, many say the reason is due to the pandemic. Others have a better time working from home than being in the office.
Everybody has their own personal reasons. But the main point is this – modern technology has allowed a lot more flexibility for many employees to work from home. Since a majority of their work is through computers, all they really need is a computer all set up and ready to go. Apps like Zoom or Skype allow us to connect together through video chat to track our productivity progress or simply ask how everyone is doing.
The whole ‘Work from Home’ routine doesn’t have to be mundane and strenuous. Our vast advancement of technology gives us access to many essential tools to help get the job done.
And the best part is we can get it all done while wearing our pajamas.
