Homing From Work

You’ve heard of “Working from home”, but have you heard of “Homing from Work”? “Homing from work” can be time consuming. Employees who home from work don’t like any work tasks to get in the way. Maybe it’s time to communicate that “homing from work” is over and has been replaced with “working from work”. Set the example. If people see the managers homing from work, they are far more likely to follow suit.


Be vigilant with social media. Some employees are probably addicted and will spend all day on social media if they can. Check performance – For example, somebody might tell you they’ve been flat out on the project since last week. Ask them to demonstrate to you the actual tasks that have been completed in the week.
