3 Benefits Employees Enjoy When Working From Home
With the end of Circuit Breaker, Singapore will be moving into a three-phased approach as implemented by the government – in light of curbing the virus and allowing the nation to return to normalcy at the same time. As such, WFH; Work-from-Home or working from home in full, will remain as the best solution for businesses and citizens in social distancing and preventing the spread of the virus.
However, WFH is a concept that has been thought to be full of more bane, than boon. But the reality is that WFH can be beneficial for businesses and employees, in the sense that employee performances have not been compromised; instead, in some cases, it has improved. Thus, many employers are rethinking the notion that productivity is compromised if employees work from home.
So, read on as we bust the misconceptions of working from home and walk you through the benefits of the WFH concept.
Saves time and money on commute
Commuting every day to and from your workplace can prove to be time-consuming and expensive – for both the employer and employees. But if your employees are working from home, you do not have to pay anything extra as commuting expenses. Sometimes long commutes can prove to be detrimental for the efficiency levels of employees. It often affects their personal lives, which will subsequently impact their professional lives. Thus, by working from home, you can save time and money on commute.
However, once the crisis stabilises and it is officially announced by the government that businesses can resume operations as per normal – it’s important to have an excellent location when searching for a new office for rent. But before you make up your mind on a specific location, an added bonus would be to get a well-equipped space from the very beginning. We offer workspaces with basic facilities, specifically air conditioning, a powerpoint, and lighting. As for location-wise, we have 10 different locations: Aljunied, Ang Mo Kio, Kallang, Pasir Panjang, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Bartley, Bukit Merah, Upper Thomson, and Tampines. In regards to our Aljunied location, our promotion consists of an offer whereby tenants get to enjoy 2 months rent-free so savings can be focused on other parts of the business. Some perks of our Aljunied location include numerous F&B outlets closeby as well as being accessible via the PIE route for a much convenient lifestyle. For more information, inform our staff via email or phone call, and they’ll happily lend their assistance. Terms and conditions apply.
Working from home means employees’ working hours will be flexible. It will prove to be beneficial for you, especially if there is a need for completing a work urgently. Your employee can do it comfortably without worrying about returning home. He or she will also not be worrying about their work-life balance because they are working from home. Thus, your work will be completed on time, efficiently, and your employee will be satisfied as well.
Similarly, how flexible lease terms also play a major role in the selection of your workspace when businesses can resume operations. With the cheapest self-storages and workspaces on hand, sizes ranging from 6 sqft up till 730 sqft for storage units and 88 sqft onwards for our workspaces, find a budget working space and start your business on the right track. Moreover, every one of our spaces comes with 24/7 CCTV surveillance and accessibility to keep your workplace well-secured. Meanwhile, our attractive lease terms for any one of our self-storages or workspaces consist of the choice to opt for short term lease and transferring of one’s contract to other different services or products within Work+Store or even our parent company, LHN Group, where you’ll find a vast range of options like commercial and industrial spaces, event venues, and the list continues.
Helps individuals with special needs
Oftentimes, for those with special needs – employers must make special arrangements to ensure they are able to work comfortably. However, if you allow employees to work from home, then such individuals can work comfortably from home. At the same time, tasks will be completed on time without compromising the productivity level of your firm.
With that being said, once we can return to normalcy – employers should make an effort to create the appropriate workplace. This may mean getting a space offering multifunctional uses. At Work+Store, you’ll be able to discover some of the cheapest self-storages and workspaces, which can help with this objective. Being able to function as an ancillary office, our workspaces don’t just help with managing multiple activities and allow employees to work together; but they’re also able to ensure employees with special needs can receive help from colleagues whenever needed. Work and storage space together presents a unique solution which heightens efficiency in both logistic processing and goods procurement for improved customer satisfaction and service.
Since it’ll still be a while till the crisis is properly controlled – WFH will be the go-to answer for many businesses to get through this storm. So, we hope that these points have eased your worries on the WFH concept, and your business continues to thrive.
As said before, Phase 1 of the three-phased approach has begun since June 2, slightly lightening the measures put in place to help the nation adjust to the crisis and gradually return to regularity. Still, many businesses will remain working from home until the situation officially stabilises. However, for Work+Store – business will still carry on, in which tenants can still use our self-storages or workspaces for their own business purposes. We only request that tenants do comply with the guidelines and measures imposed so as to keep everyone safe and sound. Together, we can combat the virus when we all do our part.
