National Work From Home Day

An opportunity not to go to the office comes along on National Work from Home Day and we can thank the developers of remote monitoring programs.

The History

In medieval Europe, the owners of hotels, inns, shops, and bakeries were often with equipped working premises in their own homes. The second floor was allocated for living space. Separate offices and commercial buildings appeared much later. Some time ago, the opportunity to stay at home during working days was a kind of reward and privilege for experienced and qualified employees. There is no point in hiding it. People who have to spend time in the morning and be stuck in traffic jams will envy the opportunity. For objective reasons, the number of people working at home increased during the pandemic. In the current difficult circumstances, mass transfer to remote mode has become a rational and adequate solution.

Interesting Facts

The holiday is celebrated on the last Thursday of the first summer month. It is a wonderful time when you can officially allow yourself not to visit your stuffy, cramped office!

  1. A stable model of working outside the home took shape during the Industrial Revolution. The concept of complex multifunctional production implies the use of equipment and a large-scale workforce. It was necessary to organize the process independently of private housing.
  2. In the XX century, people who worked at home had a creative profession, like an artist, a musician, or a writer. The workspace did not require compliance with complex conditions.
  3. The culture of office remote work was formed at the end of the last century. Employees bought equipment and installed it at home. People now have a telephone, fax, printer, and personal computer. You can even work using only a smartphone.

A nice bonus to working outside the office is the absence of a dress code. You can handle your duties in pajamas with a cup of coffee in your hand. And if you need to participate in a conference, many people put on a shirt and tie, without business-style trousers, as the lower part of the body is invisible on the screen! Funny, but convenient!

How to take part

Stop rushing. Brew a delicious coffee. Put your laptop on the sofa or bed and get to work enthusiastically in a relaxed mode. Let comfort become the motto of this national day without office pressure!
