While remote work has a long list of advantages including flexibility, less commute time, and greater convenience – it doesn’t come without its flaws. One survey reports that 56% of people get along worse with their colleagues from home, and 30% enjoy their job less from home.
Add to this the burnout that can come with the work-from-home environment. If you’re a parent, you’ll be aware of the stress (and craziness) that comes from working with children at home. Or if you live alone, the feelings of loneliness and disconnect that can come from working remotely.
