So you have this beautiful, fully equipped home office, but you never use it.
Maybe you are scared about what your co-workers would think about you working remotely.
- Will they think you are a slacker?
- Will your boss be mad that you aren’t in the office?
- Will you be less productive at home?
Chances are, you aren’t the only one who suffers anxiety when working from home. But don’t worry, I have good news for you.
Our friends at PGi conducted a survey last year to see what North Americans actually think about remote working. And they found that 67 percent of workers “thought that telecommuting was viewed more positively and has become more widely adopted in their workplace—up three percent since 2015”
Furthermore, they found that many are actually more productive at home because of fewer distractions. And with the proliferation of Momentum’s Business-Class Conferencing platforms, telecommuting has never been easier. You are able to stay connected to all office activity even when you are away.
Take GlobalMeet for example. This web-based platform allows you to collaborate easily with your co-workers when you’re not in the office. It has mobile access for meetings on-the-go and allows you to share documents and presentations with just the touch of a button. So now you can skip that time-consuming morning commute and utilize your time more efficiently. Not only will you get more work done, you will also have more time to facilitate a better work/life balance.
