I am grateful that my company introduced a work from home option to office-based employees once a week. Today is the first day that I have made that happen successfully.
To be fair to the company, whenever an employee works from home, he/she must adhere to 2 criteria:
1. Be fully contactable via phone, email and sametime at the stipulated normal working hours of the day.
2. Be able to come back to office or meet customers when needed.
It's almost like working from office, only that on this day, home is the office.
The only difference is I get to see my baby daughter awake in the morning for a bit longer before she goes to her babysitter. And I get to have lunch normally with my family members. And I don't need to get stuck in the traffic jam commuting to and from work.
It's also nice to be sitting in my "home office" in a t-shirt and not having to dress up for work ;-)
