Prittle Prattle has initiated the work from home trend. They have made sure all the employees have their laptops and all the necessary documents.

The work from home is the concept that gives flexible working hours to the employee where they can do their work by staying at home. The work from home situation is helpful for the employee to deliver work-life balance; the employee should also work to help the company get the work done, by completing the task allocated to them and achieving their targets.

The key to working from home is clear communication with your boss – and knowing exactly what’s expected of the employee. Due to the ever-evolving technologies like Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, authenticator apps, and cloud computing—not to mention texting and email—it’s no longer necessary to be in an office full-time to be a productive member of the team. In fact, many kinds of work can be done just as effectively, if not more so, from a home office.
Staying at home in a comfortable environment can boost employee productivity. Employees should keep in mind that the situation around is hot a holiday, it’s a natural disaster which has disturbed the workforces, and everyone should complete their work in order to keep the operations running and not making the company face any loss.
Whether the employee is working remotely one day per week (or more) or full-time—because of a health scare—it’s important to ensure that they are set up to be productive. This includes having a designated workspace with the right technology; ways of dealing with kids, pets, and other potential disruptions; and a schedule that allows for the social contact and stimulation that ordinarily comes from being in a workplace with others.
Working from home can be exciting, empowering and even profitable, provided employees are realistic about the pros and cons. But there are added responsibilities that come with freedom, not to mention planning, foresight, self-discipline, and focus.
