    Default Home office - advantage and disadvantages

    What say you about Home office? Do you think it is wise to have a Home as an office?

    Anyone has anything to say about this?

    actually it all depends on your work functions and discipline. if your work allows you to work in the comfort of your home then why not. for eg, if you are a graphic designer and most of the time your function is just working infront of a mac then why want to waste $ to have a office. but then of cos you need to be very discipline. another thing you need to take note if you are unable to concentrate at home due to disturbances from children or what-so-ever reasons then you have to work out of home.

    Working from a home office means no commuting in business traffic or paying for gas to travel back and forth to work. There is no pressure to clock in at a certain time or go to the office when you are not feeling well. Stress is greatly reduced with the freedom to begin work when you are ready and take breaks as needed. In addition, you do not have to worry about road rage, traffic accidents or driving in inclement weather.

    very practical indeed. if only all bosses agree with this. lol. but then again, when im at home, i just want to relax. the motivation to work isn't really there. also, at work, i get to see my friends and spend time with them.

    i agree with myyong. the movitation to work at home is lack. my friend who works from home told me in order to motivate herself she discipline herself by waking up as usual and sit infront of her pc by 8.30am, dressed in office wear with make up and go to lunch only at 12pm.

    i really kudos to her.

    i think i'd rather work in an office cos work is also about having friends. i look fwd to work everyday so that i can meet my close friends and spend time with them during lunch and tea breaks. makes life a little more worthwhile i guess.
