Benefits of working from home
We can have a flexible working schedule. We can arrange a custom environment for our well-being and boost our potential. We can wear cozy clothes and get rid of formals.
Far more easier to make calls without any office distractions. We can easily knock off our weekend to-do list and perform it on the weekdays itself. No travel and we can save money. The long traffic lines and crowds become something in our heads, vague memories. We can have more time with our loved ones.
Challenges of working from home
We need to have massive will power to remain intact with the busy schedule since our home is a hub of distractions, so muster in the willpower.
We need to have a strict schedule with routine patterns that we should strongly follow.At times, it’s possible that we may miss some important calls.
We may skip cooking meals since we may get continually engaged with our work commitments and fall prone to ordering meals. Take power naps. Boredom may set on you. We tend to work slowly. We can have network issues that can bring communication problems. Indefinitely waiting for a response can also be tiring!
As we summarise the pros and cons of working from home strategy, we should understand that communication is the key point and proper communication is necessary to maintain the workflow. There should be smooth communication among the teams and reduced delays in responding to peer’s queries.
Weft Technologies lend our prayers and wishes to all around stuck in the pandemic situation and humbly request to take enough precautions to fight this situation and at the same time, stay happy!
