Working from home and surviving it (benefits of working from home)

For a few years, Millennials have been trying to tell the rest of the world about the benefits of working from home. Now, most of you are experiencing working at home because of the local shutdown of businesses. How do you like it? Is it better than you thought it would be?

You might have found some of the same viewpoints as Sam at Financial Samurai. Having worked at home since 2012, he writes, “With the world firmly moving toward remote work, employees everywhere will soon realize several things:

  • How absolutely ridiculous all those meetings were
  • How easily a meeting can be replaced with an e-mail
  • How incredibly inefficient it is to commute in rush hour traffic twice a day
  • How much time is wasted during work hours
  • How it’s no longer as necessary to live in an expensive city
  • How difficult it is to concentrate at home when you have kids and a stay at home spouse
  • How much deadweight personnel there is
  • How lonely working from home truly is
  • How much more productive you’ll be at home.”

He claims “that one hour of working at home equals two hours of working in the office. You are twice as productive at home.”

What if you could make the money you invest more productive, too? Kelly Korshak and Randy Tate, co-founders of iFlip have developed algorithmic trading software designed to help grow your wealth. AI or Algorithmic Intelligence manages your risk when the market is volatile and focuses on using that saved wealth to grow more, making your investment more productive.

An article series titled “Millennial view” at Zendesk tells more of how your productivity increases when working from home. “Think about everything happening throughout the day at work—espresso machines grinding, chatter at the desk next to you, impromptu meetings, an interviewee walking out of the elevator (is he going to get the job?!)—there’s a lot going on, especially in offices with open floor plans. All of this can be extremely distracting and can be avoided by working from home. 

A study conducted by Stanford professor Nicholas Bloom found that the employees who worked at home had quieter environments, which increased their productivity by 13 percent. The study also found that people who work from home take fewer sick days — likely due to lack of office germs, and shorter breaks, further increasing productivity.”

Do you feel confined and stuck in your office with the glaring lights and uncomfortable chairs? The same Zendesk article suggests that working from home sparks creativity, helps people to succeed and increases employee job satisfaction. This means less employee turnover for organizations.

Telecommuting or working from home saves time and money. Everything from long commutes, wear-and-tear on your car, or public transportation costs, to meals eaten out and the money spent for the company to operate, all contribute to the time and money expended to make a business function.

If you can work from home, many costs are cut. Is there a way to cut investment costs as well? As a matter of fact, there is! 

Most people think you must have an investment advisor help you with your investing and any decisions regarding the investment. That takes time and money. The advisor will charge you fees equal to percentage of your account. There are other investment mistakes that can be made, which cause you to lose money.

At iFlip, AI makes investing simple and can help you not make mistakes. You can begin with the best mobile trading app, which you can download without cost. This mobile trading app uses the same algorithmic trading software found on the desktop investing version.

iFlip’s automated trading software uses mathematics to manage your risk. Because you’re not dealing with the costs of an investment advisor, you save money. And since AI automates your trades, you also save time.

Working at home has advantages and disadvantages. Letting iFlip’s AI retirement and stock investment trading technology automate your trades has advantages.
