|Question: Id 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
