Question - Many employees work at home using modern technology today. Some people think only workers and not employers benefit from it. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
today's technology provides the new working methods
As per the famous quote from Bill gates, "We are changing the world with technology", technological changes in the 21st century has brought a greater impact among the people. Some believe that the concept of working from home is advantageous only to employees and not for the management. I would state that it is beneficial to both the parties.
From the member of staff perspective, it is definitely a boon. One gets their own flexible timings to finish up the work where a work-life balance can been maintained. For example, if someone is traveling from long distance to work daily, he/she can take the job from home. Thereby avoiding tensions like road traffic while traveling, to reach on-time to office etc., More than everything with the flexibility provided, workers tend to be loyal and their bond with the company grows for years.
Providing work from home opportunities is not only helping the workers, but it is giving an upper hand to the management as well. During this fast communicative world, we use computers, laptops and mobile phones to attend to the work-related issues even without attending office. For instance, during an emergency situation at office, where it is already late night, manager can just ring up the worker to look into the issue from home. Instead of driving to office, the same time can be utilized to work on the problem where you get a chance to please the customer by solving the issue at the earliest.
Having discussed about the benefits on both the sides, I would say that work at home can be encouraged which brings happiness and satisfaction to both employees and employers.
