The pandemic allowed many of us to shift from in-office work to working from home. It was necessary then, but many people and companies kept up the policies. Today, many employers offer the option of returning to the workplace. While the notion of returning to an office can be scary, it can also be beneficial for you and your career. Here are some reasons why returning to the office can be a good choice for you.
Perks of Returning Back to The Office
The Separation of Work and Life
One of the most significant benefits of returning to the office is the clear delineation between work and life. Working from home, many people feel the need to access work-related communications even when they’re technically off the clock. You may also have more distractions from family or pets or chores that you feel you have to do it all or nothing will get done. By going back into the office, the workplace becomes separate again.
Working in the office also gives you better access to communication channels with coworkers and management. You have regular daily interaction that helps bring innovation and creativity to problem-solving. When working remotely, these interactions would be scheduled instead, or you would miss the subtle body language cues in communication.
Access to Management
Access to management also gives you an advantage over those who work from home. You may be able to get resources faster than your remote counterparts, which could allow you to work on more projects, have more questions answered, and access more opportunities within the company.
You will also have the infrastructure of the office to rely on. Working remotely can be great until you need to print a big job or get postage for essential documents. While you may have a process to ensure these things are expensed, they are available to anyone within the workplace without the need to jump through additional hoops to access them.
