Employers Are Hiring More Home Office Workers

Work from Home Employees are a large and growing segment of the US workforce. The 2015 Employment Report by Home Office Careers discovered that companies are increasing their hiring of remote, home-based workers. Employers are already employing a large percentage of their workforce to telecommuters or better known as Home Office Workers. The US workforce is now in a post-recession evolution as companies have needed to change their spending habits and the way in which they hire workers. Hiring home workers is less expensive for businesses and employees prefer it. Outsourcing to home office workers is part of a larger economic change where work from home has become Employment for the New Economy. Home Employment is more than just a trend or a new industry to lead our economy. Home employees represent a change in how Americans are working. Work from home jobs are the employment of our new economy. The information industry is creating job opportunities for millions of workers coming out of the recession. Employers, who changed how they hire since the recession are relying more on home office workers for the savings and advantages they offer. Work from Home employees are both a large and a growing segment of the US workforce. Work from Home Employees make up a large segment of the US workforce. The 2015 Employment Report discovered that 65% of US firms employ home-office workers. That’s an impressive discovery. I knew first hand as CEO of Home Office Careers that the work from home industry was in high growth, but I did not expect such a large segment of employers to be currently hiring home workers. However, of those remote employees, about 31% are working from home full time. Part Time Employees represent more than half of the home office workforce. Part-Time Employment represents a majority of work from home jobs. Part time...

Beat Work from Home Stress With These 5 Tips

Work of all kinds, even when you have the benefit of working from home, can bring about all kinds of stress and take a toll on both your body and mind. Here, I’ve gathered some handy tips and ideas for hobbies and activities you can add to your day to day life to help you relieve that stress and lead a more relaxed life.   1. Use adult coloring books Coloring, despite what you may have been lead to believe, is not actually an activity just for children. I purchased my own adult coloring book recently and couldn’t believe how fun and therapeutic this practice was. Coloring, when you spend time daily to focus on it, can bring about effects similar to meditation since you have to block out what is around you to focus on this fun art form. Some coloring books I would recommend include any by Johanna Basford (she is very talented) as well as others that are themed after mandalas. Amazon even calls these books “leisure arts – cheaper than therapists” and I certainly agree!   2. Write down your feelings or something completely make believe As a freelance writer, it makes sense that I would love to write. But what you may not know is I love creating poetry in my spare time. Whether your write professionally or not, writing out your feelings by keeping a journal or turning those feelings into poetry or even creating a fiction novel is a great way to blow off steam after a long day.   3. Spend more time with your pets If you are a pet owner, you know the amazing power they have to make you smile no matter what kind of day you’ve had. So, why not spend more time making them feel good? Adding in ten minutes of play time with your pets...

Your Work From Home Lifestyle May Not Be What You Originally Thought

In one of my previous blog posts on Home Office Careers, I talked about 5 Things You Should Never Do When Working Remotely. I definitely made many productivity busting mistakes when I first started working from home. But one “mistake” I often revisit is the idea of working from home in my pajamas and/or from bed. I am still a firm believer that doing your remote work while laying on your bed with a laptop is a really bad idea as it can create an environment of stress where you should in fact feel the most rested. Wearing pajamas and loungewear clothing during work hours, on the other hand, is a rule I’ve been breaking lately so I thought I’d discuss why. My clothing for the day really depends on my mood and what I need to accomplish. Do I really need to rock my to-do list today? Am I behind in my work load? It’s a day to wear jeans and a blouse because the more put together I look, the more likely I am to get my work done. Am I having a really busy night with family or friends after work? In that case I stick with thick leggings and big shirt and then change into nicer clothes for my night out. So this is just a little amendment to my statement that you should never wear pajamas while you work at home. If it’s just one of those days and staying in your cat patterned linen pajama pants makes you feel good, give your body and mind what it needs. Working at home gives you the freedom of choice; we can certainly embrace it whenever we need too. I never thought I’d end up being the person that would work in my pajamas every now and then but you know what, my journey has brought...

5 More Stress Relieving Tips for Remote Workers

Working from home is amazing but also pretty stressful. There are quite a few things that can go wrong and make you feel on-edge, as with any career path. Here are some of the stress-relieving tips and preventative measures that I personally follow to help keep my cool when I feel the little stress monsters getting to me. Make sure to share your tips in the comments so we can all become even less stressed!   1. Start the day with a grateful heart It can feel cheesy when you are just starting but writing down little things you are grateful for every morning can help set you in a good mood right off the bat. I recommend doing this at the beginning of the day instead of the end because if you do end up having a bad day, that may be all you focus on when trying to think of what you are grateful for. It’s easiest to focus on the good first thing.   2. Keep an ice pack handy When my to-do list is long and I’m feeling the pressure behind my eyes from staring at my computer screen for an extended period of time, I grab an ice pack and position it at the base of my neck and keep it there until it melts. This helps keep me from getting a full blown headache or migraine and prevents me from feeling more stressed out.   3. Light a candle Recently I’ve started lighting a candle near my desk and it, oddly, helps keep me calm even on the busiest of days. Part of it has to do with the scent of the candle but another big reason why I think it helps me is the flickering warm light from the flame. Just having that in my peripheral vision has made a difference. I’d...
