MP touts benefits of working from home

If yesterday’s icy morning commute had you dreaming of working from home, you’re not alone.

If yesterday’s icy morning commute had you dreaming of working from home, you’re not alone.

Since Workopolis, a job website, started a Facebook page in support of a National Work from Home Day in June, it’s gained 50,000 supporters.

Now Michael Savage, the Liberal Human Resources critic, is a convert.

“I think this is where we need to be,” Savage told Metro Ottawa yesterday.

“Work has changed over the years. People don’t have to be chained to an office. They can work from outside the office and home is as good a place as any.”

He’ll speak in the House of Commons tomorrow in favour of more people working from home, which he believes would enhance productivity and work-life balance while cutting carbon emissions.
