This is a 2 option poll with 100 respondents targeting Employment Status
(Full Time, Part Time). A sample of responses:
- I often fantasized about working from home, especially for the last few years. Now that I've been doing it (for nearly one month now), I don't want to go back to working in a communal office with a bunch of other people. I would be ok with working in a small office if the atmosphere was good because the socialization is nice. But it's not always for sure that that's the of environment or the type of people you'll end up working with. I've been very happy and at peace working from home. If I can't keep doing this I will likely change jobs or companies soon.
- As long as I could upgrade my equipment/supplies, yes, absolutely. I do miss my co-workers, but I'm really liking having more flexibility in my schedule. I have two young children, so working from home would mean more time with them. Even if/when they return to school, I would still get to see them more because I would be able to pick them up, etc. I would be here with them for their days off and for summers. I have kind of a makeshift set-up right now because we closed abruptly, but if I could set up a better workstation, then yes definitely.
- My current job is much easier working from home as I don't have to deal with many hassles and menial tasks that I do while working on site. I would definitely miss seeing people regularly, especially for potential romantic interests, but I could always just make an effort to get out more in my off time. I have plans for artistic interests in the future as well, which would inherently be working from home, so I am already fairly mentally prepared for doing so for a long time.
