Here at Array Digital, we’re pretty lenient; we offer PTO and the opportunity to work from home when necessary plus 4 remote employees who work from home every single day. The majority of the team is expected to be in our Chesapeake office from 9-5 because that’s when our clients are working.
Sometimes, though, we need to work from home when it makes sense. This issue is, however, when we get distracted at home because it’s easy to do. If you’re at home, you have to actually be working.
The other issue is when employees work late hours from home, getting a lot of work done, working after hours but no one actually knows you’re doing any of that; you’re getting no credit. That’s a con of working from home.
Do you have remote workers or people that work from home? An office is very valuable and it’s worked well for us but we’re not sure that it’ll be sustainable as we continue to grow our company and team.
