It is difficult to overestimate the significance of working remotely. Some people think that it's a great opportunity to earn money, others claim that it's a silly idea. Both points of view should be considered carefully.
Firstly, it gives possibility to manage the time personally. It means that the work can be done everywhere and at any time, which is more comfortable and fits in with person's plans. Secondly, it saves time as a person doesn't waste the time on commuting thus it makes workers happier and more productive. It also saves money because there are no extra expenses on transport, food and other things connected with work. Moreover, teleworking is beneficial for the privacy as there are no gossips and unnecessary information about colleagues' and person's lives.
Another important advantage is that it's a way out for disabled and unsociable people to earn money.
However, there is another position. Some people think that working remotely has a great number of drawbacks. To begin with, the working time is difficult to control. As a result, a person doesn't separate work from life and it can lead to workaholizm. Moreover, it can be quite harmful for the health especially working with the computer. Furthermore, working from home can get very lonely, because of loosing contact with the colleagues and feeling of isolation. It can also lead to loosing the sense of structure and purpose as there is no obligation to be in a particular place at a particular time, working as a part of a team towards a common goal and workers loose touch with the workplace and people there.
As for me, I think that teleworking is a great opportunity to earn money, because it saves time and improves productivity.
