Working from Home issues

Some employees will work from home but others will go to a half-way house or co-working hub close to home which will still allow for the separation of work from home but with less of a commute.

Research has shown that working from home can be more productive but may not be as good for career progression/promotion.

Promotion needs interaction so going into the workplace is still valuable.

Networking gives nuggets, makes you more visible, leading to better reviews leading to a better job.

Men working from home get interrupted less than women whose day tends to extend.
