Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When somebody works from home it saves the company money but it also saves the employee money. An employee can also gain many intangible benefits from working at home. One of these intangible benefits is having a greater job satisfaction. Many people that work at home report a greater job satisfaction than those who report to an office. One of the reasons for having a greater job satisfaction is having a less stressful environment to work in, creating more fun and rewarding work for the employee.

Savings from having a work at home job are obvious. First the costs of commuting to a job are completely eliminated. Saving the employee and employer loads of money. Fuel costs are cut, along with any tolls an employee may come across along with any parking costs that may be involved with commuting to an office. Another obvious savings to strictly the employee is less everyday wear on their vehicle making them last longer. Less obviously an employee saves money on lunch outings, assembling a wardrobe, and even maintaining the clothes with dry cleaning costs. Some even less obvious savings are that an employee saves from contributing to baby showers and birthday presents of coworkers by working from home.

Less obvious advantages to not having a commute are that it helps our environment along with helping our country. It helps the environment because there are fewer emissions from the car being released into the environment helping cut down on pollution. It also helps our country because there is a limited amount of fossil fuels left in the world and working from home cuts down on fuel consumption.

One of the reasons people gain greater job satisfaction working from home is because they do not have to deal with the stress of commuting. They skip out on traffic jams, long commutes and the pain of trying to find a parking spot. They are also saved from the stress that can come from complicated situations with cubicle neighbors or coworkers throughout the office. There are limited distractions in an work at home environment. This makes the employee able to completely concentrate at the task at hand.

Lastly and most important, depending on the job, working at home can have a very flexible schedule. Having control over your own schedule can bring an employee great satisfaction. This is a much greater advantage to early birds and night owls. Working at home makes it so they can work when they want and not just during regular business hours.

The many benefits of working at home make it very desirable for people to explore different at home programs. For more information and to find out more on an at home program review this website.
