Work from Home or Work for Home?Many companies give facility of work from home to their employees when needed but at times it often happens that instead of working from home people either misuse it or are distracted by the home environment and get tempted towards helping in household responsibilities while working. When this happens work from home often turns out to be work for home.
Till the time the employee is very dedicated, sincere and strong in mind there are always chances that work from home gets misused and does not give full productivity. A person working from home sometimes get tempted to help the spouse in household work, go out to fetch grocery, pick up their children from the bus stop, helping their children in their homework, enjoying an afternoon nap etc. When this happens work from home actually loses its true meaning. While working from home it is best to keep the personal things separate from work during office hours. Any personal work should be taken up only during evenings after the office hours.
If an employer trusts the employee and gives work from home then it should not get misused. Work from home should not be a means to fulfill personal obligations and to avoid taking leaves. It should be the same as working in an office. It is best to take leave if an employee feels that he has some personal work and will not be able to do justice to it.
