For many of us, working from home holds a great deal more appeal than sitting in a noisy–or worse yet, deathly silent–cube farm, day-in, day-out.
I know that I’m more productive here than I ever was in the office. And I hear many folks echoing the same sentiment. And when you cut the commute down from a matter of miles to steps. And the access to the fridge. And…
Oh I could go on and on and on.
But what if you have to build the argument to get that opportunity?
To hit the high points:
- Research the technology
- Position yourself for success
- Determine the business reason you should be allowed to work from home [HINT: It’s not the access to the fridge noted above.]
- Prepare your proposal
- Establish a trial period
