Are you concerned about all the new colds, flu’s and other ailments that people often spread at work? Then you are like millions of other people every year that do whatever they can to stay healthy. But what if you could work in an office that allows you to have a great career, but avoid having any physical contact with the outside world, thus avoiding getting exposed to things like the Swine Flu and other illnesses? Not only would this be great for you, but it would also protect your partner and your children from getting sick. Well, it is possible – with telecommuting!
Telecommuting is a great option for anyone who is worried about getting sick at work. At many traditional brick and mortar jobs, coming to work with colds or sniffles is actually encouraged in order to keep production levels up. Employers in these environments often frown upon workers who call out sick on a frequent basis, regardless if they are causing others to become exposed to harmful germs and illness. That’s how many flu’s and colds spread fast, becoming pandemics around the world. Even when flu shots and hand sanitizing products are provided, employees can still become sick easily by working in stuffy buildings that recycle stale and bacteria filled air and being under constant stress at work.
Telecommuting is an option offered by many companies around the world. Not only is it more convenient as it involves performing work in the comfort of your home, but it allows you to control how and when you work, including the choice to work in a healthy environment. The basic requirements include having access to the Internet by way of a reliable computer and having a telephone system as a means to complete work and stay in contact. Many telecommuters work as independent contractors, which means they have more say in what kinds of work they perform and what type of earnings they’d like to create to sustain their households. And telecommuters don’t need to worry about being exposed to germs as much so they can focus on getting the work done and not missing work due to illness.
If you are finding that you get sick easily at work, you may want to consider trying a work from home job. There are many great job options with excellent companies that are performed from the comfort of a clean and safe home office.
