I am home-from-home, convinced that the desire to save my daily commute to work was one of the reasons why I started my own business well over 10 years ago. Permanent employment and work at home? At that time unthinkable. Today, on the other hand, this is completely in line with the trend. That Company But I also see the advantages of the HomeOffice, but I also consider it critical: the focus is on cost savings.

To feel like a boss has become obsolete

Overview

My former boss was one of the old school: one who apparently believed that people do not work decently if he could not watch them. Or who could only feel as a boss, even if there were enough employees.

If he had been placed in front of his computer alone at home, it would probably have been a big ego problem for him: How would he have been the boss?

2020: 6,7 desks for 10 employees

Overview

If you follow the "Workplace of the Future" report of the IT company Citrix Systems, 2020 will no longer have a desk for every employee. However, 6 will have different devices that the employees have to bring with them.

Office space worldwide will be reduced by 14 percent. And then there are only ten 6,7 desks. For its investigation, Citrix 1.900 interviewed senior IT decision makers in 19 countries.

Undisturbed or cut off from information flow?

Overview

On the one hand this has advantages for the employees: They save themselves the way to work, theoretically have more time for private things too, for example, they can take care of the children "on the side" and concentrated work because they are not distracted by office noise and chatty colleagues.

This is exactly where the hare comes in the pepper: precisely because they lack the gossip culture, they are cut off from the information flow despite all electronic communication media.

Mixing of work and private life

Overview

This becomes critical when even the actual purpose of the work suffers: For example, during a research yesterday, I came across an intern who, as a benefit to his employer, specified HumanCaps "HomeOffice". I wonder how he should learn something - sounds like a cheap job for easier work.

In addition, the professional environment is increasingly shifting into the private sphere: the files are in the living room, you answer in the evening and on weekends eMailSwitching off and on is becoming increasingly difficult.

78% find the management of employees at home more difficult

Overview

But also the Company The trend towards the home office, one hears and be amazed, poses a problem, which is why not everyone is enthusiastic about it.

The study Workplace Survey by human resources provider Robert Half International shows: 1.770 percent of 13 personnel managers in 78 countries say the leadership of these employees is slightly or even more difficult compared to those in the office.

14% do not allow Home Office

Overview

Around 40 percent of the companies have acted accordingly and already Guidelines for a successful cooperation developed. And 14 percent do not allow Home Office at all.

The main reason for the skepticism is the opinion that productive work requires the presence of the employee in the company as well as lack of security in the data transmission to an external computer.

The survey was conducted in May and June in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Germany, Dubai, France, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Singapore.

Tips for working in the home office

Overview

In order for home office collaboration to work smoothly, companies and employees should make clear agreements:

  1. Set clear goals: To ensure efficient work from home, clear goals and results should be determined in advance.
  2. Develop Guidelines: Clear, transparent regulations help manage teams in which employees work in the office as well as in the home office. Communicate the rules openly to all team members. This is how you can prevent possible prejudices against a supposed improvement of an employee.
  3. Offer Home Office as an offer: Make it clear to your employees that Home Office is an alternative, but can not replace a regular presence in the office as well as attendance at important appointments or in team meetings.

    Teleworking is becoming more and more popular as you open up new opportunities for entrepreneurs and employees as well as freelancers. Your article has a few important points briefly and succinctly. It might also be interesting for entrepreneurs that it might also be associated with risks - for example, when it comes to data protection of the data to be processed. For this purpose, the BfDi has published a short brochure, which in 9 chapters looks at the topic more closely.
    A supplementary article on this would be home office and data protection - what should be considered ?.
