One of the greatest human tendencies in the job profession is to judge others on the basis of the work they deliver. No matter who you are or what your job profile is, you will be judged on the basis of how you perform. And thus, clearly it is in the best interest of any individual that he/she takes a look at their own performance before their boss does.
It is a common assumption that bosses judge you on the basis of certain fixed parameters such as being reflective, punctuality, attitude, etc. which is true to a certain extent, but these parameters slightly differ when we talk about working from our homes.
Working from home considers not only your professionalism, but your personal life becomes a part of your boss’s assessment criteria too. The fixed hours you work for, your multitasking skills by creating and maintaining a specific boundary between your work and your personal life, punctuality in delivery of the assigned work, dedication, attitude towards the boss and work and your ability to work under more pressure even while being in your comfort place (home) become the basis of the judgement of your performance.
Initially, people by and large form the assumption that working from homes or through virtual mode is a blessing in disguise but this presumption certainly doesn’t last long. Gradually their eyes are opened wide and they are hit with the reality with a clearer picture, that makes them a believer of the fact that grass is always greener on the other side.
