As you can see, working from home is a policy that comes with numerous benefits for both the employer and employees. While the employer largely benefits by cutting down on expenses and increasing productivity, the employee saves a lot on commuting costs and strikes a better balance between work and family. Telecommuting or work-from-home is slowly becoming acceptable, especially in the tech-based companies. With the ever-advancing technology, it’s easier to connect with people from anywhere and at any time. That means even delivering on work projects is made way easier as the worker does not necessarily need to be on site. If reputable companies can consider adopting this mode of working, then there is a higher chance of making employees focused, increasing productivity and cutting costs on operation.Source: Main Benefits of Working from Home
