Caroline Tresman, founder of website Homeworking. com, says the key drivers for people working at home are escaping office politics, getting away from the daily commute and being in closer contact with their families.
“People often end up doing more hours when they work from home, but it does give them flexibility as well, ” she says. “However, it isn’t for everyone.
Some people will try it out and realise they miss the social interaction and the routine of being at work from 9am to 5pm, so they need to think carefully about what they are doing.”

Don’t be a commuter – stay at home with a computer
Extract from: Teleworking has such a lot of advantages – so why aren’t more of us doing it? asks Elisabeth Mahoney
It needn’t be all lonesome on the homeworking front though. With increasing numbers of people working in this way and the trend bound to increase as technology in the home becomes more familiar, there is help on-hand, on-line.
Caroline Tresman editor of www.homeworking,com found a dearth of good advice on the Internet when she first began working from home. “The idea is to provide quality advice for free to the ordinary person thinking about homeworking. It’s important to remember that many people turn to this way working not because it’s the best way for them to work but because they have money problems. Instead of dealing with their debt they get involved in homeworking scams which end up taking money off them. We encourage them to deal with their finances first and we have a debt consultant providing advice.”
