Work Culture and Ethics
The home office worker needs to keep abreast of the work culture.
The work culture denoted by interpersonal skills, ability to strike rapport and working relationships with others, communication skills, grooming, and etiquette all distinguish a professional from others. Side by side with the work culture is a good work ethics of timeliness, effective time management, effective prioritization, and maintaining an effective and optimal work life balance. Such work culture and ethics come as a habit to any office going professional.
A home worker can still work without such habits, but in the lack of effective supervision, or opportunities that require the professional display such traits, the home office professional can easily slip off such habits and rusticate. The home worker would also invariably slip in personal productivity without maintaining professional development. It stakes a strongly committed home worker to display the same level of work-life balance that one inculcates when working out of an office when working from home.
Failure to display the same level of work culture and ethics that one does in a regular office, when working from home can affect the home office worker’s ability to do the work in the same quality and timely nature. Such a slip of professional standards can adversely affect the home workers ability to return to a regular office set up later.
