The Future of Work: When Your Home Becomes Your Office

Working From Home

When your home becomes your new office, it can be hard to set boundaries between work and personal life. This hour, we continue our series on The Future of Work by discussing the benefits, and drawbacks of working from home full time. 

Coming up we’ll speak with some experts on the importance of setting work/life boundaries, managing flextime and what the future of the workplace might look like.

During the pandemic, what has it been like working from home for you? Are you enjoying spending more time at home or do you miss the defined separation between your office and your home?

Where are you working? Do you have a defined workspace, or is it wherever you can set your laptop down? How have your work hours changed?
