It can be tough to juggle your schedule with your service member and the kids, along with the other things going on in your life. That’s why it’s such an asset to be able to land a job that allows flexible roles or work from home opportunities.

In a study conducted by Stanford University, their research showed that telecommuting improved productivity of their employees by 13%.

Mom Corps shares 5 reasons why working from home is proven to boost productivity.

When you’re looking for new work from home opportunities, keep these tips in mind as more ways to ensure your future employer that you’re the perfect, trustworthy candidate for the position.

More productive work hours

No commute. No dropping the kids off at daycare. Working from home allows employees to get straight to work in the mornings instead of dealing with other responsibilities that have to be taken care of before the work day can begin.

Healthier employees

Working from home allows for a healthier diet – not rushing out for fast food as a quick lunch. And people who work from home often move around more in the comfort of their own home. Tending to the kids, going for a quick run to break up the day and having more flexibility leads to a healthier lifestyle.

Access to a larger talent pool

If a company is only looking for local employees who have the ability to drive into the office every day, the talent pool is greatly minimized. If working from home is an option, the geographical options are expanded greatly.

Lower overhead

Leased office space is minimized. Furniture, and office supplies aren’t necessary. Companies save huge amounts of money when letting employees work from home at least half of┬áthe time.

Increased retention

People who work from home have higher job satisfaction and lower stress. Increased flexibility leads to a better work-life balance and happier employees have a greater desire to produce good work. Happy people make effective employees.
