Employer Concerns with Working from Home

Despite many employers embracing the concept of working from home, there are many others who still struggle to justify that the home environment can be a productive place to perform work. Not every role can be done from home, nor does this work well for all staff, but those that can and the employers are reluctant to make this happen, here are some common concerns as to why:

~ That work will not get done at all or as fast
~ That Managers won’t be able to keep a close eye on them
~ That they won’t be easily contactable by their colleagues
~ That once they are set up at home, these arrangements can’t change
~ That they will waste time due to the inability to access company software, hardware and files
