Ate you really enjoying wfh. I think there are both pros and cons of working from home. What's your opinion?

I think it would be better if more people work from home. Lots of people are working behind the computer all day long, with the internet and other modern technology, it must be possible.
There would be less traffic jams, less crowded trains and busses, less airpolution etc.
Within 50 years, almost everybody will work from home I guess, robots and other machines can do the work in the factories, and maybe even people could control these machines and robots from home.
If I think of how people will live in 50 years, I think a lot of the people don't sport and all grow fat.
Everything you wanty to buy then will be delivered at home.

I allready hear from people who work from home wearing their pyjamas the whole day. Why dress up if you don't have to go outdoors?

Within 200 years people won't walk at all anymore, so our legs will disappear. (In the very past humans used to have a tail and it disappeared because we didn't use it).

I love working from home.

It's job dependent, some sector's can facilitate people working from home, but there are several sectors (production, service etc.) where this is not possible.

I hope to be able to maintain a mix of both when things are eventually back to normal. It is good to keep in touch with colleagues, but for my job, I wouldn't need to be able to be an office every day.

I think there will be a hell of a lot more socially inept people in the world.

Same here K. It works perfectly for me.

Those who are still employed will make savings from not paying out extortionate rates to use public transport.wine

Work from home since the end of March. It spares me a lot of traveling time (and some money), as well as expenses on clothes. The negative side: I feel always as if I'm at work and I miss the interaction with the colleagues, but professional and personal.

Though I can do my work from home, I'd rather do it from the office.

Agree about meeting with colleagues. I have a space that feels like an office, it’s not hectic.wine

Our little office could feel overcrowded at times - especially for me, an introvert, but I miss even that :)

Yes, made some savings as well. Main thing for me is not having to commute, I hit the walking trails at 5 pm during spring/summer and had still lots of time to work in the garden.

It has been nothing but positive for me but I understand that it can be lonely for people (in general, not only work related) if they are living on their own.
