Flexi-Work Arrangement: Maximizing Focus and Productivity Near Home


4 min read

With the recent release of new guidelines on April 16, officially allowing employees to request flexible work arrangements (FWA), there's a notable shift in Singapore's work landscape. These guidelines also emphasize that it's not reasonable for employers to demand physical presence solely to monitor productivity, further supporting the transition to remote and flexible work options.

In this article, we explore why transitioning from the comfort of home to the vibrant atmosphere of a coworking space, such as Staytion, can significantly enhance one's work experience. From eliminating distractions to fostering collaboration and networking opportunities, coworking spaces offer a plethora of advantages that surpass the confines of home offices.

Join us as we delve into the myriad benefits of choosing Staytion as your professional haven and discover how this shift can elevate both your productivity and overall well-being.

5 Challenges of Working from Home vs. Coworking Spaces

  1. Isolation and Loneliness: Working from home can be isolating, especially for those who thrive on social interaction. Without coworkers nearby, employees may miss out on the camaraderie and collaboration found in a traditional office setting.

  2. Distractions: Home environments often come with distractions such as household chores, family members, or pets. These distractions can disrupt workflow and reduce productivity, making it challenging to stay focused on work tasks.

  3. Boundary Blurring: The boundary between work and personal life can become blurred when working from home. Without a physical separation between the two, employees may find it difficult to switch off from work, leading to burnout and decreased well-being.

  4. Limited Networking Opportunities: Coworking spaces provide valuable networking opportunities, allowing individuals to connect with like-minded professionals, share ideas, and collaborate on projects. Working from home may limit these networking opportunities, hindering professional growth and development.

  5. Lack of Amenities: Coworking spaces often offer amenities such as high-speed internet, printing facilities, meeting rooms, and complimentary refreshments. These amenities can enhance productivity and create a more professional work environment compared to the limited resources available at home.
