Working from Home

Friday, February 19, 2021

It was announced yesterday that we can continue working from home until the end of April this year.  My teammates and I have been working remotely since the lockdown started, and we've proven that we can efficiently perform our tasks even if we're physically apart, so why can't we extend this arrangement even after the pandemic or, better yet, make it permanent. Working remotely reduces the likelihood of our contracting and transmitting the virus, but it also brought a welcome change to my pre-pandemic routine. Not having to get up early in the morning, waste time putting on make-up and choosing clothes, spend hours commuting to and from work, and face peak-hour traffic every single day has been an enormous relief. I can't imagine going back to that daily torment. By staying home and commuting or driving less, we not only have more time to spend alone or with loved ones, but we also get to reduce our carbon footprint and do something good for the planet for a change.
