Why I think working from home isn’t good for you

Productivity:

  • Some individuals may find it challenging to focus and be productive in a home environment due to distractions such as household chores, family members, or pets.
  • In an office setting, fewer distractions and a more structured environment can increase productivity and focus.

Collaboration:

  • Working from home can limit spontaneous collaboration and brainstorming opportunities in the office setting.
  • While video conferencing and messaging platforms have made remote collaboration easier, some individuals may still need help to build and maintain strong relationships with colleagues when working remotely.

Work-life balance:

  • Working from home can blur the lines between personal and professional life, leading to longer working hours and difficulty disconnecting from work.
  • In contrast, working from the office provides a clear separation between work and personal life, allowing for better work-life balance and the ability to disconnect after work hours fully.

Social interaction:

  • Working from home can be isolating, leading to loneliness and disconnection from colleagues and the workplace.
  • There are opportunities for social interaction in the office, such as coffee breaks, lunchtime chats, and team outings, which can foster a sense of community and belonging.

Ergonomics:

  • Home workstations may not always be as comfortable or ergonomically designed as office workstations, potentially leading to discomfort, pain, or even injury.
  • In the office, workstations are designed with ergonomics in mind, reducing the risk of discomfort or injury due to poor posture or repetitive movements.
