Working in an office requires us to step out of our homes, get a transport or drive our own vehicles which consume energy resources and hence, contribute to pollution and environmental degradation. If most people are given the facility to use their mobile phones for engaging with the colleagues, making files and giving presentation online, this might be helpful in driving fuel and hence, less pollution, less resource consumption and an effective step towards the sustainable development.
- Going to office consumes a lot of time in preparation and travel. It requires us to give more time in dressing up, preparing meals for lunch, transportation and traveling time and our job which is for 9 or 10 hours becomes 11 or 12 hours, less work efficiency, more pressure and time-consuming. Imagine the amount of production generated by every single employee if he is able to save ‘those extra hours’ and utilize the same in working on their computer screens, or paperwork or on calls for client interaction. Therefore, if more employees are assigned tasks on daily basis with a deadline to complete, it will generate more production for the company without affecting its proficiency.
While some companies have fixed hours for the employees to work from home. Others have the flexibility of time to help the employees work stress-free and with more efficiency. From part college students to full-time office jobs, there are many opportunities which can be enjoyed by the employees.
