Taking part in National Work From Home Day 20th May

6 Great Reasons To Convince The Boss

Instead of spending a dull day at the office – how about taking part in the National Work From Home Day? Enjoy a brighter, more creative and productive time working from home. Office Boutique, an office stationery retailer specialising in decorative and distinctive stationery is supporting this initiative from Work Wise UK which is also being backed by the TUC and the CBI.

But what reasons can an employee put before the boss to get them to say yes? Office Boutique has put together 6 winning reasons for employees:

Higher productivity – proven facts from BT and Cisco who do year round homeworking – BT save £2.2m a year and Cisco employee’s report a 69% increase in productivity
Enhanced customer experience – instead of the usual 9-5 office hours employees can contact customers to help them outside these hours
Employers can show off their green credentials – all that energy on cars, trains and buses saved – the only commuting employees will be doing is walking into their own office space!
Savings in office overheads – office space and facilities will stretch further – employees are helping in times of cuts
Finish an important project – with less distractions around the water cooler or with colleagues stopping by to chat employees can really focus on their work
Shows the company in a positive light – helps with staff retention, morale and work/life balance

For employees the exercise can be practical and enjoyable, they save on commuting costs and time, it helps with family arrangements and they can produce a higher quality of work. Employees do not generally need to be convinced but by providing some positive bullet points more employers can be convinced.


Office Boutique is an office stationery e-retailer run by Belinda Robinson. The business sells stylish, chic and distinctive office stationery and business gifts and is based in Bradford.
