1. Boosting Productivity – A structured, vibrant workspace, devoid of the distractions and clutter of home can enhance your ability to focus on the tasks at hand. At the office, you won’t be thinking about loading the dishwasher, transferring laundry, or letting the dog out: You can simply be at the office, delineating work from home and creating more balance.
2. Nurturing Mental Health – Daily interactions with colleagues, both personal and professional, provides a vital support system. A quick chat while you and your colleague are grabbing coffee in the break room can build camaraderie and rapport–never underestimate the power of friendship.
3. Facilitating Career Development – Those in-person interactions with colleagues can not only improve your mental health, but they can also create opportunities for mentorship, networking, and skill development that are more difficult to develop remotely. There’s power in a spontaneous brainstorming session in the break room or a casual conversation that sparks new ideas as you walk to your next meeting.
