  1. My essay::

    In recent years, working from home concept has risen in popularity due to availability of modern gadgets, which require to do the same tasks at home instead of completing those at office. In this essay, I will explain why this trend has more positive outcomes than the negative effects.

This is because many employees cannot afford high-speed internet access and they choose low bandwidth internet plans, which hinders proper communication between co-workers. Software industries are prime example of this, in which, workers need to access remote servers to perform their tasks that requires good quality internet connection.

If all employees are choose this option to work, the organisation needs not to pay any electricity bills or purchasing property or even buying expensive devices such as laptops and printers to complete products or projects.

    In conclusion, although deadlines can be missed by employees if they fail to buy required quality devices to complete their assigned tasks in working from home option, I believe that this approach offers more unbeatable benefits, which not only include saving transportation time to reach the office but also involves cutting down the cost to run an organisation.
