Friday Distraction: Working From Home [infographic]

by Sharlyn Lauby on April 6, 2012

While I work from home every day, not everyone gets that same opportunity. There are many benefits to telework even if it’s only one day a week. So I thought you might enjoy today’s infographic because … well, sometimes pictures and images can sell something quicker than words.

Compliments of Splashtop and Column Five, this infographic tells us all about the new Work from Home Friday movement.

Maybe this is just the start of something that could be expanded into a more telework-centric scenario. Has your company joined the Work from Home Friday movement? Leave a comment and share your experience!

Great infographic! I work from home two, sometimes three, days a week. Our company, in general, has a very flexible work schedule policy. I do find that I am more productive at home. I get to sleep a little later AND I start a little earlier. I get to enjoy the company of my four-leggeds (and little Leroy doesn’t have to spend the day in a crate). When it’s nice outside I can work on the porch and sometimes I will take 20-30 minutes to go for a short walk.

I do enjoy going in to the office as well though. At a previous company I worked from home every day and some days I would find myself going to Target at lunch just to see other humans. Occasionally I would find myself getting annoyed with my husband – he would come home at 8pm from a long day in the office and just want to stay in and I was ready to GET OUT!

Thanks for the comment Ginger! When I first started consulting, someone told me it would take 2 years to get used to working at home. Looking back, it probably took me almost that. I love the flexibility it offers. But as you mentioned, it has it down sides too.

Great info-packed infographic. Interesting info all around–especially that “pay” falls 81st on that list.
