In the last decade, a multitude of public used to travel to their workplaces to perform their duties. However, with the birth of the latest technology tools such as computers, smartphones, and faster internet, many employees have started to work from home. In this essay, I will discuss both merits and demerits of this development.
There are definite advantages for people working from home. A few years before, the maximum number of employees have to travel to their workplaces, paying traveling fare, wasting time as well as staying away from families in time of emergency, but with the development of these smart devices have improved public relation with their families as parents are available around the clock in homes. Furthermore, it has also increased people's wages with a small effort to learn a set of skills, such as Python and freelancing, making the channel on YouTube that help them find decent jobs locally and globally.
On the other hand, working from home also has disadvantages; for instance, according to the latest research at Fudan University, Shanghai, around 90 percent of staff who work from home often gain weight and suffer cardiac problems. Working from home affects not only health condition but also reduce participation in social gatherings that may lead to depression for a few people.
In conclusion, working from home has both pros and cons. Perhaps the ideal arrangement would be to adjust our working schedule so that part of the week should spend with colleagues in offices and part at home, with a certain amount of flexibility and comfort.
