Working from Home

Recommended Posts

Most people are still working from home because the pandemic is far from over, especially with the new variant. Some companies are allowing employees to return to the workplace, but this is very limited. What are your thoughts on working from home? Some people prefer it; however, others find it unhealthy physically and mentally.

I'm a workaholic, so I'll work anywhere if need be, but I perform the best when I'm in the office.  I've isolated myself three times after being exposed to the virus, so I worked from home during those periods.  I found it depressing and frustrating, but I'll always be thankful that I had the opportunity to continue working without using up my vacation or sick days.  We currently have the choice to stay at home or come into the office, though this could change in the future.  Our ventilation system has been redone at work to decrease the spread of COVID-19.  We also limit meeting times, and we keep the windows open when have them.  Most employees still wear masks. Those at home are included through Slack and Zoom.   That level of flexibility and understanding has increased my loyalty to the company.  Some other employers have been terrible during the pandemic!  Although I don't prefer to work from home, a good employer should keep that option open for now.

During these times, companies should be considerate with employees' preference of working environment. Others are just more worried than their co-workers concerning the situation that they would be more comfortable working in their homes. On the other hand, some people would prefer to work in the office. Since working from home has its inconveniences, especially for people who have children. It's good to hear that your company is being flexible.

If I had to choose, it would be full-time remote work. The time and location flexibility can't be beat. However, I do miss in-person work relationships. Talking to a coworker or boss about concerns or just something funny, face to face, can't be replicated on Zoom or Skype. Not yet.
