The whole business-world workforce is moving out to settle in their houses. Telecommuting and work-at-home business are growing rapidly. It is healthier, more convenient and, as the telecommuters and home-workers cite themselves, it is all about a flexible schedule. You can start and finish when you want, you can make breaks whenever it suits you, you can do your chores for a change: cooking, shopping, laundry or dusting.
According to the recent survey conducted by Insight Express and that polled 941 participants from the United States, Europe, Australia and other regions, 76 percent of those polled agreed that their productivity level is higher at home than at work, due to the comfort and the comfort of soul that home provides, doesn’t it.
Working remotely allows saving on office clothes and the poll revealed that 39percent of the respondents wear sweat shirts, while 12 percent of men and 7 percent of women go for Adam and Eve’s dresses rejoicing at the bigger freedom of choice here.
As for the breaks, about 18 percent of males stopped for doing domestic chores, such as laundry, making the rooms and dusting. With women, the percentage is higher – 38 percent of them used that opportunity.
The comfort and confidence of those, who have chosen their home as a workplace, is in balance, as over 50 percent of them believe that their managers are as happy about their choice as the respondents are themselves.
Security turned out to be at the bottom of the list of advantages, as the surveyed tend to keep their passwords in the places that are characterized by low security: PCs, stuck notes and mobile phones, the locations which are qualified as easily-accessed.
Those doing work at home can also save time, funds and extra nerves on transporting and absence of traffic jams, while companies benefit from low absenteeism and call-in-sick rates. A recognized positive tendency.
