Whilst we are all glad to be returning to normality and getting back into the office, working from home has been beneficial, convenient, and given us a great work life balance. So it is understandable if you are feeling that keen to work from home 2 – 3 days a week. These days we can basically work from anywhere with a simple internet connection and this pandemic has shown that many industries can operate with employees working from home. The question is; how do we discuss having the option to work from home with our employer? Here are some tips to approaching your employer with this conversation:

Request a time to sit down to have this discussion

Outline the responsibilities of your role that you could carry out from home

Create planned days for home & office – be flexible

Present your accomplishments throughout lockdown and why WFH helped you

Stating why working from home is beneficial too?

Better job satisfaction

Improved work-life stability

Enhanced productivity

Reassurance of flexibility

Healthier mental & physical stability

Consider this as a great opportunity to understand where your options lie and grasp it. Directing your intentions of what you want can be tricky but it’s best to address it because if you don’t, you’ll never know what your options are.
