I saw two good articles on working from home yesterday. Is Working at Home Right for You does a nice job outlining the key issues one should consider prior to deciding to work from home.
The one item they left out is loneliness, which is interesting because it's the single biggest complaint about working from home we hear in our research. People miss the human interaction and social aspects of work.
There's also a professional aspect to this. They miss the business networking opportunities that come from being in an office environment.
People planning to work from home should think through how they are going to deal with both social and business isolation. Working at a coworking space is one approach.
The Five Biggest Distractions When Working From Home covers the results of a Regus survey on this topic. It covers the key distractions quite nicely.
I work from home and would write more about distractions, but I have to walk the dog and then watch a re-run of Get Smart on TV.
