If you are fortunate enough to have the choice of working from an executive office or working from your own home office, the decision can be a difficult one. The two settings provide different benefits and many situations can depend on your personality, work style or personal preferences. Below are some reasons why you should consider the office.
Removes the home distractions
Working from home is often both a blessing and a curse. It’s absolutely convenient, but comes with a certain amount of responsibility. When you’re home during the day, there’s often a temptation to finish a load of laundry, walk the dog, or even relax on the couch and catch up on some TV shows. If you’re the type who can handle the multitasking, it might be fine–but many might not have the same discipline to juggle chores and be productive at work at the same time.
New environment, new mindset
If home is the only place you see throughout the days and even weeks. Your environment can have a psychological effect on you. The monotony of the same environment could lead to decreased motivation or morale. There’s a sense of refreshment when we get to change our scenery. When you have an office to go to, it often comes with the options of meeting rooms, break rooms, and common areas–all of which provide different amounts of inspiration and adjusts to varying working styles.
Organic collaboration and relationships
Lastly, one of the most valuable things about working in an executive office is the human interaction. With colleagues, fellow entrepreneurs or community members mulling around, you’re bound to run into someone with a good idea about how to solve your current business challenge or someone who might have skills and the opportunity to collaborate. There is opportunity in an office.
