How To Convince Your Boss To Allow You To Work From Home

For a lot of people being able to work from home is the ideal situation for both work and their personal lives, especially if a person who works away from home has to travel a really long distance to their job. This can cost them a lot of money for gas and wear and tear on their vehicle to the point where it may not even be worth going to work. If you find yourself in that situation you might want to somehow set up a way that you can do your job from home. However; that will take some skill and patience in trying to convince the boss to let you do this.

If you are new on the job and have come up with this work at home idea, forget it, it's not going to happen and you probably shouldn't even consider trying to approach the boss with this idea. There may be a policy on the job of having to work for so long with the company before even considering it, so make sure you find out what that policy is.

Before you approach the boss with this idea you need to make sure that you have already shown that you can do your job well and without any kind of supervision. You need to show that you are capable of handling most situations on your own and that you are also flexible when it comes to handling a variety of different tasks that are thrown at you. You may not get public praise from your boss but your boss is going to notice this and it will be easier to convince them you can handle doing your job from home when you approach them about it.

You will also need to be able to figure out if your home office is set up to where it will be able to handle all of the demands that your job places on you. You will need to have all of the same equipment set up at home that you have to work with on the job site to get your work done. If you need special equipment you are going to have to be willing to go out and get it on your own. This means you will have to invest your own money when you do this. You should have the entire office set up and ready to go and be able to prove to your boss that you already have all the necessary equipment and software to handle the job at home.

Sit down and figure out what reasons your boss might give you for not letting you do this and then come up with solutions for those problems that he might foresee as being future problems. Be ready to argue your case with professionalism and proof that these problems can be handled from home just as well as if you were there in the office.

When you approach your boss with the idea give him plenty of reasons to believe this is ideal for you by trying to convince him that it will save him money, will save you money which will make you happier. That you will be able to do your job better at home. Focus on all of the positives so there is not much room for any negatives he might try to come up with.

Make sure that you are more than willing to listen quietly to the concerns of your boss. If for example he'll let you work at home, only if you are willing to check into the office once or twice a week, accept it and be willing to handle the compromise. You could also offer to let your boss come over to check out your work area and show them that you do have everything that you need. If they can't come to your home then take some good photos of your office and let them view the set up that way.

Make sure that if they agree to this that you show them in every way possible how much you appreciate and continue to do your work in the fashion you did it when you worked in the office. You don't want the boss to end up feeling they made the wrong decision. It could cost you your job.
