Drawbacks of Telecommuting

Link: https://fairygodboss.com/articles/telecommuting

Telecommuting, or working from home or another place other than the regular office, is becoming more prevalent these days. There are many benefits to telecommuting. However, there can be downsides to working from home.

For me the benefits far outweigh the downsides.I can't really think of any hassle in doing work from home jobs especially when you literally can work from your own bed. It saves time from all the travel, you can eat lunch at home, and you get to have more time with family.

Telecommuting seems a little bit odd to me. It doesn't create any feelings like I'm working or something like that. An office is not only an arena of the working field but also it makes a special relationship with all employees, creates new experiences, widens their soft skills and much more. Although I personally support telecommuting but sometimes I feel that it really makes us lazy.

I somewhat agree with you. I may consider telecommuting a part time job. Unless it offers you a great deal of salary?

is it like working remotely like what happens these days with developers?

Yeah @Forrest Gump though it offers less salary than office works. But you may not call it part-time. You know some temporary even long-term projects are easy to do in our home or anywhere else.  Obviously, it will offer him/her a great deal of salary.

Some companies actually prefer the  work from home people for their staff. It lessens overhead costs and they can find good people in that market too.

Yes that makes a lot of sense... especially with jobs that can be done remotely like developer and design work. But I can also see its limitations in that not all job sectors can benefit from this technology. I mean if you are a nurse or something like that this is not too useful I believe.

Yes nurses are not part of the freelancing world because of course they cannot treat patients or assist doctors when they're not physically around.

Though it's a part-time job, it is treated as like working hour based work same as office just a little bit accommodation alternates. Apparently, all countries provide studentship work permit. They also include the telecommuting in their bounded work permit if it up to 20 hours or more. For example, a student has a freelancing account where he/she earns extra money by working 20 hours, so he can't work in another part-time job center cause his work permit exceeds.

It has very little drawback really. It's great for the workers too as they don't have to travel to go to work anymore.
