When talking to many clients, I’ve noticed a trend in those who work from home claiming that so many people feel their roles aren’t important. When I press them further, it soon becomes clear that some people have a lack of respect for those people who work from their home.
With so many people taking up the decision to perform their work from the home environment, in recent years it has become one of the more popular ways of working in the twenty-first century.
However, society has yet to get its head around this concept that working from home is indeed real work!
