Working from Home Is More Beneficial for Everyone
May 19, 2017
If you’ve been thinking about asking your manager or boss for a work-from-home day or two, you’re in luck. Gallup conducted its “State of the American Workplace” report proving that having balance between working at the office and working from home is imperative for engagement. Workers that spent 60 to 80 percent of their time working at home (no more, no less) were most dedicated and efficiently consumed by their work. With open space offices multiplying, employees are happy working at their busy office if that means working from their quiet home too.
If you need more proof, many other companies are accommodating those who work from home. Jim Harter, Chief Scientist at Gallup, describes the shift as means of adaptation. Employees work best with balance and businesses recognize it and acclimate themselves. Improvements are made by finding new ways to collaborate, communicate, and connect those that work from home with those that work at the office.
