Working from home Pros & Cons
Among this huge times of uncertainty and losing compass, we have been questioned a lot about how we do manage productivity without losing the spirit and keeping the good vibes on the table still
we have spoken with Amal Saleh, to illustrate us how she can get it all managed, giving that Amal has been managing projects for knowledgeNet for the last 10 years in a row in three different countries ( Egypt, KSA & UAE )

Working from home (WFH) is something new for so many people, companies and we can say countries. Something that has taken all of us by surprise. It impacts communication and may leave some employees feeling disconnected and unsure about their results.
Saleh also added that the sure thing is, it is not for everyone! So, it's important to consider some advantages and disadvantages before you make it a part of your work process.
1- The Flexibility: When we work from home, while we still have to meet our deadlines and be available when we say we will be, we generally have wider space and time to tend to other non-work responsibilities.
2- Increased productivity: Being able to step away from our work when we feel like we need a break can help us stay motivated and reduce burn-out.
3- More independence: Working from home can provide independence in our job that might be absent in a physical workplace
4- There is no commute. Not having a long commute to and from work can save us time and money.
1- Home Distractions: Too many distractions can decrease our productivity and motivation. WFH needs a lot of self-discipline
2- Increased isolation: Working all day without access to coworkers and colleagues can be very isolating and lonely.
3- There's less ad hoc learning. In the office, we are constantly in a position to learn from each other
4- It is easy to misread cues via electronic communications
WFH has some benefits but it might be not the perfect situation. Understanding the reasons behind facilitating WFH can help in learning how to apply it successfully.
