It’s at this time of year that many of us will be thinking about making life changes - there’s something about the New Year that makes us reflect on the past year and seek improvements in our lives. Many of us even think about embarking on a new career, or setting up a new business - if you are thinking about working from home next year then you will be joining the 4.2 million plus* who currently work from home in the UK.
There are many benefits working from home, flexible working hours, no commute, relaxed environment and ultimately it gives people more control over their working hours. - And Phil Flaxton, Director of WorkWiseUK told the mirror,:“The structure of our economy and consequently our workplaces has changed significantly.
“Cultural, economic and social changes are affecting attitudes to how we balance or mix work and lifestyle, where increasing mobility and technology is shifting the acceptance or need for traditional office based, 9-5 work patterns, to be replaced by more home-based, flexible ways and periods of work.
“Such fundamental change towards home-working is recognised by increasing numbers of inspired, and more trusting employers.”
If you are thinking about running a business from home you don’t need to have a massive space to accommodate your needs to start with (depending on what type of business you are looking to start) but having a dedicated space outside the home does help to separate working time, that’s why this house currently on the market with Intercounty Bishop’s Stortford offers the perfect working from home environment with its separate studio/office.
