5 reasons why working from home might be the right choice for you

Feb 26, 2019 | Careers blog

Working from home is becoming more and more popular among all sorts of professions – from graphic designers to game developers, writers to customer support agents. With the rise of technology, it is becoming more feasible than ever to stay connected, organize business meetings and manage teams online – and all of that from the comfort of home. It is not a futuristic mirage or wishful thinking, it is happening here and now and you can benefit from it too. But before diving in, you might want to consider that working from home might impact your lifestyle on many different levels (though, in our humble opinion, mostly for the better!). Have you ever considered working from home but wondered if it’s a good option for your circumstances? Check out why we believe working from home might be the right choice for you:

1. You can work from the comfort of your home 🏠 

Working in your home environment can reduce stress and increase your productivity. It is a proven fact that working from home is better for your health because in times of stress, staying in a familiar environment can help you relax and unwind.

2. Live anywhere 🌎

You can live anywhere. Literally. At 5CA we have remote workers that travel around the world as well as expats living in faraway tropical places.

3. Suit up? No more! 👔

If you are allergic to office wear you’re going to like this: if you are working from home, you don’t have to spend large amounts of money on clothes that you don’t like. Feel comfortable every work day in whatever you are wearing.

4. Forget about hours wasted on commuting 🕗

Do you remember those moments when you were late because of commuting to or from the office and getting stuck in traffic? With working from home lifestyle this will become a thing of the past! No more long bus rides or waiting for a train that never comes. Working from home means you can enjoy saving time every day.

5. More time for family, friends or…just for yourself 👪

Yes! Because you will not be spending oodles of time on travel going from point A to point B, you will have more spare time to devote it to the ones you love. It all sounds fantastic, doesn’t it? But you also need to realize that working from home is not for everyone. The best way to check whether you would enjoy this way of working is to experience it yourself!

At 5CA we have many colleagues working from home from anywhere in the world. And even though they are located all around the world, we make sure everyone feels like a part of the 5CA family. If this all sounds intriguing, don’t forget to check out our open positions.
