How To Work From Home – The Smart Way

How To Work From Home – The Smart Way

25th September 2018 Off By Vithoria Escobar

Is ,’working from home’, the same as, ‘SmartWorking’?

Yes..and No

You can SmartWork, but it does not necessarily have to be from home. And you can work from home, but it doesn’t mean you’re not SmartWorking. So how does this work?

When we talk about remote working, many people still conjure up the image of someone at home alone sitting in front of their computer, probably in sweatpants. And this image is not necessarily wrong.

However, to get a better understanding of the concept of #SmartWorking it is important to make some distinctions between the different aspects of working as we know it today. In other words, you can work from home in your comfy sweatpants- if that is what works the best for you. But it does not have to be this way.

The basis of SmartWorking is the idea of freedom and having the ability to work wherever you feel most productive and agile in that moment. It can be from home, but it could also be from a café, a co-working space, a corporate office or even from the other side of the world.  It can be alone, but it could also be surrounded by people. 

There is no right and wrong when it comes to SmartWorking. Regardless of your preferences, it adapts the demands of work to your own lifestyle in a way where you feel stimulated and, consequently, maximize your results. The traditional office setting becomes as support rather than a necessity.

The SmartWorking model provides a whole new meaning to participation in work. It goes beyond physical presence. It approaches the way you express yourself, share your ideas and how you explore new dynamic manners to improve your performance. 

This new type of work relation allows us to disrupt concepts. These changes are directly related in our way of thinking and our capacity to maximize our abilities, regardless of locations.  SmartWorking opens for both employee and employer a new world of possibilities and new challenges. And working from home is only one of those many possibilities!
