Home­of­fice: saves costs, but also harbours risks

4. October 2018

The trend towards home offices is growing steadily. Digi­ta­li­sa­tion does not require a fixed work­place since a long time. In many areas, daily work can also be done from the living room, the kitchen or even from the bed. Impro­ved worklife balance, falling office costs or more effi­ci­ent time manage­ment are advan­ta­ges from which both compa­nies and employees can benefit.

The disad­van­tage: direct commu­ni­ca­tion, e.g. to clarify a current problem, is more likely to be hampe­red. Employees in home­of­fice often feel left alone. In order to remedy the situa­tion, an e‑mail is quickly sent to the colleagues or the boss asking for a quick answer.  But not every mail is opened, read and answe­red immedia­tely. “You don’t send an e‑mail when there’s a fire,” says Beat Bühl­mann, GM at Ever­note. The result: the work comes to a standstill. So mail is not always the best and fastest way. In case of doubt, experts advise you to pick up the phone. Because: A direct conver­sa­tion often saves time and many problems.
