Today’s WAHM Wednesday is dedicated to my memories of a former coworker who, when hearing that someone had taken their work home and was not coming into the office on that particular day, would snicker and say:
“I hope that they enjoy their day off.”
I believe that it’s attitudes like hers that have kept many companies from adopting more liberal telecommuting policies, despite the fact that telecommuting saves companies money.
My own feelings about the subject is that work is work, whether it is done from home or in an office building. In fact, from my perspective, working from home has the potential to be more efficient than working in an office. (There’s certainly less absenteeism!)
What’s your take? Do you think it’s more efficient to work from an office, or out of your house? Where do you get more done?
