Working From Home

Featured Image - Future of Work 7

Hi I am Interesting_Spring and I am going to be talking about working from home.

First of all do you think that working from home is a good thing or not? Let me know in the comments below.

Working from is good for about 40% of the world but then the other 60% can't work from home. In session three for example the journalist could work from home and it wouldn't make a difference. Whereas the cafe owner couldn't work from home because she can't serve people from her window the shop owner can't either.

I feel that working from home will change the way people work forever. My opinion is that working from home is good because you get to spend time with your family and choose when you start your work. However it could also be quite bad because people might get slack on working and it is a completely different environment which some might not get use to.

What do you think?

For some people might stay working from home. For example my dad said, " I might work from home on a Wednesday, a Thursday and a Friday. " I think it is a good idea to share out when you are working from home and when you are in the office because then you don't always stay in the same inviroment.

For other people it can be hard if both perents work and you only have one room to do it in.

What do you think about working from home?

😛😛Thanks For Reading Interesting_Spring😛😛

Can you use it to help support your own opinions?

    Working from home is a good thing at the moment because of coronavirus but people are missing talking and seeing their friends at work. When I am at school I prefer to talk to people so I know what I am doing so it must be the same at work because you might need some help and advice. It is good working from home because you don't have to drive or use public transport and you save lots of time, you save money and it doesn't cause pollution.
    I thikn people would like to do 50% working from home and 50% working ibn the office when coronavirus is finished.

      Hi composed_planet. I think you make some really great and thoughtful points for both working from home and from the office!

      I personally really like the extra time from not travelling every day, but I find it easier (and more interesting!) to chat to team members in person.

      Do you think 50/50 working (also called "hybrid" working) would suit everyone? Why/Why not? Do you think businesses should have one rule for all or should it depend on the person? (e.g one person working from home, another person going into the office every day).

    Working from home can be quite bad as cafe owners and shop keepers will probably have to get furlowed and if they can go to the shop and work it would save a lot of government money.
    Thanks for reading my comment.

    Hi there, my name is decisive_redcurrant and this is my comment
    Working at home can be difficult for some people because they could have children or they could have pets or all sots of things that make noise and that can really affect there work. "HOW??" Well here is what I think
    Imagine if your having a zoom meeting and your child want some food, but your n a very important meeting that depend on your whole life. Your child obviously going to be pressuring you an you'll probably have to go and feed them. But at the same time if your working in your work place there might be a lot of noise coming from
    others. So what do you think??

    Well interesting_spring l think that working from home is better in some ways but working in the office can sometimes be a lot better and makes you feel more comfortable but working from home could save the planet because using fuel can pollute the air. I think working from home is better. This is a great post well done.

    Working from home is a good thing, it can help reduce the spread of COVID because you're not leaving your house and you're working from home. Working from home is better then working not from home. I think everybody should work from home if they can so we can reduce the spread of COVID. Working from home is good also because you aren't using your car so we're reducing the amount of pollution aswell.

    I think it really depends what job you have so if you are something like a journalist it is easier to work from home but things like a shop owner you can barely work at all and there are more people who can’t work from home than people who can.

      Can you share your source for where you found out that "there are more people who can't work from home than people who can", willing_cymbals?

    I think working from home is good because if you're going to work from home, you can keep others that are in your team safe. Even if te 60% aren't able to work from home, they can still listen to the covid-19 restrictions. I know most of this because my mum can't work from home but she has to wear a mask when she enters the building.

    I hear your point unbiased_science . I couldn't believe how empty Canary Wharf shopping mall and restaurants were when I came into the office once during the pandemic. On the contrary, do you think that people who work from home would support their local restaurants, shops and cafes more?
