It’s Work From Home Week 2018 - Earn Cash Without Leaving The House!

These days there’s a dedicated ‘Week’ for almost everything you think of - and for the next seven days it’s the turn of ‘Work From Home Week.’

But there’s actually nothing new about Work From Home Week. It’s now in its 16th year, with the first weeklong spotlight being cast upon remote working way back in 2003.

So, this year Work From Home Week falls from today, 15th January, until Sunday 21st January.

The idea behind Work From Home Week is to that it ‘aims to get employers and employees thinking about the option of working from home and all the benefits it can bring, from avoiding the rush-hour crush to creating a better work/life balance.’

‘With increasing numbers of people foregoing the office and a lengthy commute in favour of working from the comfort of their own homes, Work From Home Week is a hot topic of conversation for the media and a prominent fixture in the media calendar,’ says the website behind the nationwide campaign.

Last year, over half (58 per cent) of employees were offered flexible working options by their bosses. Add in freelancers who work from home and the increase to UK productivity from this market is increasing on an annual basis.

At e4s we’ve always been strong advocates for work from home jobs for students and we’ve written much advice to help you find the best opportunities.
