How Can I Tell My Employer I Actually Prefer To Work From Home?
Updated: Jan 22
With Covid-19 and everything that goes with a global pandemic, many individuals are finding themselves having to work from home. However, as time has gone on, many are being asked to return to the office. Either at regular working hours and days or on a schedule - whether that be half working from home and the other half in the office.
Some people have enjoyed working in the comforts of their own home office while others prefer to work with other people and be in an office environment where they can concentrate on the tasks at hand.
You might be someone who enjoys working from home. You enjoy being in the comfort of your house, waking up just a little later than you would usually do. You don't have to worry about the busy commute to work. It's almost a luxury to you.
I enjoy working from home, especially for the reasons mentioned above.
However, you are probably wondering now how can you express this love for working from home to your employer. Deep down, you want your employer to know that you enjoy working from home and that you are keen to continue working from home.
First off, you need to have an open and frank conversation with your direct manager about what it is that you want, your reasons for wanting to work from home and to see if there is any flexibility for you to continue this, should you be able to and can.
All employees need to have a good working relationship with their manager. Having an open, transparent dialogue with the people who manage you helps make the workplace enjoyable and cohesive.
