Work / Life Balance
It can be hard to separate work time from personal time when working remotely in your home office. Leaving the office at the end of the day is a physical cue that it is now personal time. When your desk is in the next room – it is much harder to pull away effectively.
When dealing with sensitive client or company data, high-quality digital security is of the utmost importance. At the office, employees are working with computers that are under multiple layers of security protocols. These security features may be unavailable with their home internet connection.
Inability To Use Office Equipment
With the sudden shift to working from home, many employees had to make their home office do with what they already had on hand. Workers often lack basic equipment and tools they would have access to within the office such as copy machines and software. This can severely limit an employee’s ability to complete their day to day responsibility effectively.
Lack Of Communication
Being physically separated from your teammates can have a detrimental effect on collaboration and communication within the company. Many employees say that they struggle to feel truly heard during zoom meetings and feel disconnected from the team overall.
Are You Really working? I will let that be answered on its own.
