- How should I bring up working from home? 5 answers
A bit of background info...
I moved to a new town along with my partner around 8 months ago to start work at a software house. The job has been great so far, but I think moving was a mistake as the area does not suit us well. I would like to ask my boss about the possibility of remote working so that I can return home, seeing as other employees of the company are allowed to do so. These employees commute to the office once or twice a week.
Also, my partner requires a driving license for her current job, which has recently been revoked. This limits her range of opportunities in the area, so it could be hard to find employment without a license.
What would be the best way to approach my supervisor to ask if this is a possibility? I am not looking for a short term solution. I would like the ability to work from home for say, 3 days per week and then commute to the office for 2 days.
