Lucy Lyle, the founder of Perch, is quoted as saying, “Your workspace at home should be designed for three things: focus, organization, and aesthetics.” She continued, “Eliminate distractions, make sure everything you need is easy to find, and don’t be afraid to pick furnishings that look beautiful. You’ll be happier at work that way.”
Since the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more people have been working from home, and it has become the norm. With it comes many advantages, the biggest and most important being time and money savings, as well as flexibility.
Setting your schedule and pace is convenient and advantageous, especially if you have elderly relatives or small children to care for. You can work around your home commitments and still meet your deadlines. With the extra time saved by not having to commute, you can enjoy hobbies, go to the gym, or engage in other pastimes that you wouldn’t have been able to do if you had to be in the office daily.
Lucy Lyle, says “Many people enjoy the freedom that remote work gives them. They can work from anywhere, whether it’s a home office, coffee shop, airport, or train, as long as there is an internet connection available. This is handy when you need to take your children to appointments or extra lessons, or when you’re waiting at the doctor’s office or the swimming pool at their school. You can continue to work and save time.”
One significant reason staff opts for a remote position is the amount of money they save on transport, food, and work clothing. Lucy Lyle has demonstrated that remote workers are less likely to be absent from work, and their productivity can be higher and of superior quality compared to their office counterparts.
