Want to work from your family room in your pajamas without having to deal with the daily commute? and thanks to technology, telecommuting is easier than ever in the marketing industry. So what are some other benefits you can enjoy with this kind of work? Here’s a look:
You can work from wherever.
You might have a dedicated home office. But, if need be, you can also work from your kid’s baseball game, on the road, or at a local coffee shop. As long as you have a laptop, you can take your office with you.
You’ll save money.
When you no longer need to invest in formal workplace attire or spend on gas for a lengthy commute, you’re going to save quite a bit of cash. You also won’t be going out to eat lunch every day at pricey restaurants or swinging by the coffee shop every morning for a $5 latte.
You’ll be able to set your own schedule.
You’ll likely have certain hours where you need to be working and available. However, when it comes to remote work, you can often set much of your own schedule. That means if you’re more of a morning person, you can rise early and bang out a chunk of your work during this time of the day. If you operate more efficiently later at night, then you can work at the time that best suits you.
You’ll get more done.
In the office, there are plenty of distractions, from that chatty co-worker to birthday parties for staff. When you work from home, though, you don’t have to deal with this and instead can focus 100% of your time on the work you’re doing. This will improve your efficiency and performance, too.
You get to avoid petty office politics.
The workplace is difficult to navigate and can often seem like an extension of high school. When you work from home, you can avoid the gossiping, backstabbing and career climbing as you simply focus on your job.
You’ll become more independent.
You won’t have resources just a few steps away, like the IT guy or the HR person. It’s why you’ll often go looking for answers on your own, developing solutions that work for you. As a result, you’ll learn more and become more independent as you do.
