It really is time for business to acknowledge that providing employees with the option to work from home isn’t a concession to save costs on office space. Rather, it’s a smart and modern approach to recruiting and productivity. With the right employees (it doesn’t work for everyone) and a strategy to allow for face time for meetings, it can be a win win. There is a body of research out there today that confirms work from home programs boost productivity, among many other benefits.
That said, I did used to say that I would take a pay cut to work in running shoes… True!
