On Why Banning Remote Work is Hurtful, Not Helpful

 

Heather,

 

Great piece! Having worked for some companies that offered both options, I can tell you that I have always found myself more productive from home. No phones ringing, coworkers gossiping about how trashed they got over the weekend, managers standing over your shoulders doing their best micromanaging impressions etc. Yes, not everyone is productive at home, so it should be viewed on a case-by-case basis by companies. More companies are actually finding that letting employees work from home is not only productive and healthy, but also saves the business money on office space, electric bills, equipment, and more. For those companies living back in the 1970s yet, whereby people sit 5-10 feet apart at desks, good luck.
