Career Advice

Former recruitment agency experts answer employment questions, candidly suggesting how to negotiate your salary, find a really good job, handle phone interviews, and more.

Sage advice like this is priceless.

Question: I’d like to work from home. How do I ask my boss about this?

Think about this from the employer's perspective and tailor your message to their concerns. Do not focus on your personal reasons - do not tell your boss you want to work from home to reduce daycare expenses for example. By emphasising your personal benefits by working at home will make an employer wonder if you will be focused on your job. Instead, present a plan that shows your boss how you will succeed when doing your job from home.

The best time to approach your boss about this is when you have already proven yourself in the office then later request a flexible schedule.

If you are granted the ability to work from home then demonstrate to your manager that it was a good decision by using constant communication with those in the office to assure management that your work is being completed successfully and on time.
