Milton Keynes was built as an intermediary between the bustling cities of London, Birmingham and Cambridge – people who worked in the capital could live there cheaply and easily commute to their offices.
Since then a plethora of businesses have sprung up in the new city so that the average resident only has to travel three miles in order to get to work.
Why not go one step further and start working from the comfort of your own home? Take up PC hire in Milton Keynes and you could fill out reports, video conference with clients and carry out research on your sofa or in your home office.
Not convinced? Take a look at some of these key reasons why working from home could be exactly what you need:
1.No commute. The daily commute can be hazardous, especially when you have to contend with late trains, missed buses and noisy passengers. Work from home and you can jump from the bed, into the shower and to your desk within half an hour. Plus you’ll save money on travel expenditure and fuel costs, which can only be a good thing given rising inflation and the recent VAT hike.
2.Relaxed dress code. Work from home and you can fill out a spreadsheet in your flannel pyjamas and slippers. In fact you can wear anything you like as long as you don’t have to make regular visits to clients. If indeed you do need to speak to a client face-to-face and don’t have the time to make a real-life visit, use your hired PC to set up a video conference. You’ll be able to get the job done quickly and still be able to provide your customers with valued contact time.
However, do remember to dress sharply if you do choose to video call. You should give off a professional image at all times even if you are working from home and are stationed away from the office.
3.Utilising breaks. If you use your hired PC to complete your tasks quickly and stick to the same deadlines as you would within the setting of the office you should have time for regular breaks. Use these to your advantage and get things done around the home. For example, put the laundry in the washing machine, fix a broken drawer or just catch up on the news. As long as you complete your assignments and fulfill your contracted working hours there’s nothing to stop you from taking a couple of 15 minute breaks in the day and taking a lunch hour. The important thing is not to overstep the mark and start abusing your home-working situation by taking excessively long breaks and neglecting your duties.
