With employees working from home on the rise, it is debatable whether this is the winning formula.
The positives are really quite appealing: it cuts commuting time to zero; enables you to sit in your pyjamas without having the worry of trying to iron that crumpled shirt at the back of your wardrobe; and no need to worry about missing your favourite lunchtime show. But is the big hype of working from home really is what it is cracked up to be?
Some may argue that without the surroundings of office life, your creativity and flow are at their lowest. Who do you bounce your ideas around with? Flossy the cat? It may be that when you work from home you miss out on significant opportunities to further innovation and improve your creativity.
