I’ve very fortunate to have a new job. I wanted WFH, but I guess it wasn’t in the cards. Do you think people who work from home are that much happier?

I agree with a Director 1, it depends on the person. I LOVE working from home as I get more done. In the office people were dropping in wasting my time, I can stay focused at home. I don't have to spend an hour dressing, doing hair and makeup, waste time and money on the commute. I jump out of bed, turn on the coffee and open the laptop. If I need to work long hours, I can break for dinner w/family and then go back without driving back and forth or simply eating in the office. I can also throw in a load of laundry on the way to the bathroom. Other people get too distracted at home, a load of laundry turns into 5 other things. Other people need to be around people, feel too lonely at home.

Yes, working at home full time is the best. I have the flexibility to live where ever I want and work odd hours if needed. I lived in the same city for 40 years. I have lived next to Cowboy Stadium (now AT&T) in Arlington and have lived in Destin and FT Myers Beach FL. I have a home gym/exercise room so I can work out and work at the same time. Not having to drive anywhere helps motivate me to take my daughter places when I get off work.
Working at home isn't for everyone. Of you are a social type, working at home probably won't be ideal.

It depends on the person. I like a mix, days where I can introvert and focus on a specific project while wearing leggings and drinking coffee from my favorite mug AND days were I can feel the buzz of the office and interact with the people we serve. I like the flexibility to WFH when I have a sick child or repair person but I like talking to coworkers and the insights that happen from those off the cuff conversations.

I agree with D1. Don’t forget the little things that can make office work more relaxing though… like bringing in your favorite mug to drink out of at work.

Who knows with the new role there may be changes in a few months/ years where you can work from home a day or two a week.

I will never go back to an office. I’m more productive at home, and I tend to get more done. My work is always 100% completed, and I don’t always have to work a 40 hour week to accomplish that. I clean during breaks and don’t have to spend my weekends catching up on household chores either. It’s my perfect scenario.

What’s interesting is my WFH position is permanent and so is 100% of the people I work with. And I’m not sure why the negativity but I have only received exceptional reviews since working from home and the flexibility is welcomed by my employer. Welcome to the future!

I am severely Bipolar and WFH allows me to deal with my symptoms with privacy and dignity. I have quotas/productivity and quality I have to meet
I can drink as much coffee, watch movies, cry, and take short walks as long as my work is completed. My appearance and my emotions are a shambles, but I can keep down a job and not worry about disability. I have a real income, benefits and my coworkers don't know what I struggle with. Not every work from home situation is the same.

A nurse can WFH doing a variety of nursing roles. Online teaching is one. Case management and Utilization Reviews for insurance companies are other ways. Also consultations, legal nurse and so much more. Nurses are not robots and even when working on the floor/unit, we still have to use critical thinking to manage patient care. WFH is no different except we get to have lunch and an actual pee break! 😇

I have worked from home for 14 years and I would never go back to an office. It takes a lot of self discipline but once you get in a groove it’s bliss. The only down side is not having as much human contact. I used to make all of my friends in the office. I am an introvert so I don’t mind the solitude, but sometimes I miss having work buddies.

I love working from home. It gives me flexibility that I wouldn’t have otherwise. When you’re relatively young and changing jobs frequently you don’t really get to build much on office relationships anyway so for me it doesn’t matter much that I don’t get to see people face to face.

I am one of those that love working from home. My current job transitioned is back to the office 3 days a week a few months ago. I started looking for a full wfh role.

A third vote for it depends. I was philosophically opposed to it until my current position and now O love it. I provide direct services and only having to manage client energy works much better for me. I find I manage my own energy better in my own space rather than taking in stuff from coworkers as much. I have had to figure out incorporating movement and more intentionality socially but it's well worth it to me

I work remotely from home full time. Most days I love it. I can leave all the hustle and bustle of office chatter behind and be more productive. Some days I do miss going into the office but that’s only during the rare times I’m not busy. My work is usually busy all the time so I get more done wfh than in the office. I can work late or weekends being remote to catch up on work. If I were in the office, I will never go into the office on the weekend just to work. Hell no. Lol

I love being able to work from home hybrid.
However, I don't have children, nor a partner, so I can understand how my situation is different.

I'm also a neurospicy person and it definitely helps me not to have to mask (emotionally and presentation wise) all day everyday.

However for my older sisters, it would be hard to be in office due to picking up kids especially of you're a single parent

I'd love to! But based on my line of work, the best I could have is probably a hybrid setup. Also, I don't think that everyone who worked from is happier. It still depends on your preference.
