MTI Strategic Reflections
Working from home
Many jobs do not require physically commuting to work. Working remotely (on some days of the week), improves quality of life, enhances motivation and is good for the planet.
We have advanced with connectivity and technology, but some of our work habits are still stuck in the early days of the industrial revolution!
When companies are challenged to allow working remotely, the response tends to be, “How do we know what they will do?”
My response is, “As if you know what they do when they are in the office?!” Incidentally, a significant percentage of working hours are devoted to social media use and applying for other jobs!
