Work from Home (WFH) Best Practices

Work from Home Best Practices can be very rewarding, yet you must prepare for the inevitable distractions associated with the environment. This is not about distributed teams, or managing a global workforce, this is about WFH and the variables we need to consider.

Pros:

  • Schedule flexibility
  • Geographic talent access
  • Morale booster
  • Commute reduction
  • Productivity booster
  • Enhanced relationships

Cons:

  • Distractions
  • Technology faults
  • Security concerns
  • Collaboration inhibitor
  • Productivity inhibitor
  • Lack of relationship contact
