If you’re thinking of working from home, then here’s another free resource that you might want to review before you give up your desk in the office. We’ve heard a lot about why people want to work from home… now this infographic from Internet Provider gives us an insight into some of the challenges you might face if you do.
A survey of 24,000 workers in 95 different countries highlighted some of the most common challenges for those working from home, and found that :
– 59% were impacted by children or family demanding attention
– 43% had trouble concentrating on work issues when in the home environment;
– 20% suffered from bad postur;e
and maybe this one relates to me… 12% were impacted by pets demanding attention!!
It seems to me that none of the obstacles are so significant as to avoid working from home; though some consideration of these issues BEFORE you make the big move could certainly help you with planning the transition, and maybe even save you some heartache down the track.
