One request our sister company, Progressive Travel Recruitment, regularly hears is for work-from-home/remote jobs.
A State of Remote Work study by Owl Labs (US video conferencing company) found that 83% of the homeworking participants said working from home makes them happier. And 81% of the total surveyed said the ability to work from home would help them deal with work and life conflicts.
The people who worked from home full-time were happy with their jobs 22% more often than the office workers.
So, happiness and improving your work-life balance are clear benefits of homeworking.
This was a US survey, where homeworking is widespread. The great news is that many other countries are now catching up.
This course has been co-written by a panel of homeworking experts consisting of the directors from Progressive Travel Training and Progressive Travel Recruitment, Fi, James and Tony, together with Articulate.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Devise a plan to work from home, understanding everything you will need to guarantee a safe and conducive working environment
- Review a number of communication apps and approaches that maintain a sense of community, involvement and which avoid conflict and isolation
- Describe how to avoid burnout with self-care
We would also encourage you to complete our ‘time management’ course, which can be accessed from the travel courses page on the Progressive Travel Training website.
