Working from home is often put forward as a great solution for people looking for a more flexible employment pattern.
Individuals will be able to plan their shift out in a way that suits them, while they will have more time to focus on their day-to-day activities as their commuting times are non-existent.
I think businesses should be looking to take advantage of such measures, especially as the economy struggles for growth.
Not every company will be in a position to offer pay increases to staff members, but by encouraging flexible working practices, they can make sure people know they are a valuable member of the team.
Indeed, a study by the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization found remote workers are more productive on creative tasks, which could be because they are free of the distractions the office brings.
So this is something all companies should bear in mind.
