That in turn leaves a direct affect to the productivity of the task assign for the respective day undone. And hence effects somehow our incentives and the overall performance. This is very common senerio that employees frequently face in big cities like Bangalore, long commute and stuck in the traffic for long and long hours.
So you see here I make a point for employee particularly one staying at long distance from office to cut down their commutes and hence saving the traffic time and put that time in their work done from home. And when you work from home, you get an extra hour to work and get something more creative and productive for the company and for yourself too, and is more beneficial for the company also and reduces travelling expenses too.

Sometimes it gets tough to wake up and go for your job when you couldn’t sleep due to your sick child or some occasion, a previous night, which can be stressfull of an employee to work at office and can also effect the important important meetings(if any). On the other hand you can easily be flexible with that and can plan your task accordingly.

Since we all are different, some of us just can’t do work with a Tv nearby and also with the comforts of the surrounding while some face struggle to stay focus at office cabin with other sort of distractions.
This is all because you can control you work situation in an easy and better way at home, which you cannot avoid at office for instance you may loose your important time while grabbing coffee at work and office politics is something you cannot escape rather you may become target topic for everybody which hinders your work.

4. AVOID OFFICE POLITICS
Office politics is something that kills your time to the great extent and even more when you have the deadline to finish the given task 😛 😛 . We all have must face it once in the life time or maybe more.
Politics in office destroys work ambiance as much as it destroys the individual performance of the employee. One might not be your friend in the office. But when you work remotely or from home, all this gossiping and politics can be skipped. This cutoff acts as a boosting element in work from home and gives better results. Isn’t worth it?
5. MONEY SAVER
A big difference could be seen when you don’t have to bear the traveling cost. Commuting is anyway very expensive these days, particularly in big cities when you have to use cabs like OLA and UBER of your purpose.
There are other areas where you can save too as you don’t have to check your wardrobe daily and buy stuff that suits you. At the place you don’t need separate phone lines or office suppliers, money can be saved. Also as you can get coffee and your food free at home anytime to your taste that saves money!!

The entire table is yours. Time is yours, not necessary to start your work sharp at 8 am or 9 in the morning. One can work any time for any number of hours. You can work at nights too!! Waooww!!! Well that’s a nice thing happen to the night lovers!! Isn’t it?
Working from home gives flexibility to use break time of specific working hour in any way one wants!! Anything that’s may not be possible during traditional office, anything like sing a song or a power nap for 10 minutes or play a music and move your feet in rhythm or in childcare or maybe be WhatsApp and Facebook at you. JUST ANYTHING 🙂
