Ecologically friendly

Because telecommuters work from home rather than driving to work, they not only save time and money on petrol, but they also reduce pollution by keeping off the roads. Polls also reveal that when telecommuters work from home, they drink less bottles of water and print fewer pages than when they work in an office.

While it may appear to be a simple act of frugality, the larger picture reveals that people who work from home are collectively doing anything good for the earth in little but substantial ways.

Spending more time with the family 

Telecommuters have far greater time flexibility than typical 8-to-4 workers, allowing them to better organise their days around the needs of their families. The chances of being summoned for an overtime shift or missing one of those dinner parties due to rush hour traffic are little to none. People who work from home have the luxury of reducing their working hours in order to spend more quality time with family and friends.

A less stressful setting

Naturally, working from home allows you to keep both your family and your career in balance, making the daily grind less hectic and more doable. Telecommuters may also select when they are most comfortable and productive because of the flexible working hours. Working remotely also relieves you of the stress that comes with a nagging supervisor, office drama, or that awful ergonomic chair.

A calmer environment 

Because not everyone who works from home is surrounded by the world’s loudest small animals, nearly half of those polled believe that working from home provides a respite from the noise & stress of a traditional workplace. Small things like having the ability to create your workstation, as well as the solitude and solitude of work – from – home, are difficult to come by in a typical office setting.

Get rid of long commutes 

Telecommuters may substantially cut the amount of time they spend on long trips by working from home. According to a recent study, the average British worker spends 10,634 hours commuting to and from work, costing £50000. That’s nearly a year of our life wasted commuting, time we could be spending with our loved ones or doing the things we like the most. Fortunately for remote workers, these numbers aren’t likely to come back to bother them anytime soon.

There are less distractions 

Many telecommuters think that when there are fewer distractions at home, such as clients passing by or having to continuously answer calls or emails, they can get more work done. Many people find that having a regulated atmosphere allows them to focus more on their duties, resulting in increased productivity.

Increased output 

In terms of productivity, a Stanford University study from 2013 found that people who work at home are 12 percent more productive and 50 percent happier than their office-bound peers. You should keep this in mind the next moment you want to sell your boss on working from home.
