FiveThirtyEight argue that People Working From Home In A Snowstorm May Be Producing More Than You Are, finding that in some cases home workers demonstrate a surge in productivity. I wish more companies would open their minds to the potential benefits of home working, rather than seeing it as an excuse to shirk off and lounge around in pyjamas. And I wish that (I assume) the minority of home workers who do shirk off and lounge around in pyjamas would stop doing that as it’s ruining it for the rest of us.
As stated before on this blog, these days ‘work’ is very much a state of mind, and being in the workplace does not necessarily mean being ‘at work’ in your mind. I long for the day when, on turning up at the office, my boss asks me what I’m doing there and tells me to ‘go home and do some work’.
