Yes, working from home means that you get to sleep and wake up before your alarm does (unless you partied hard the night before or worked during the night, in which case, remember to turn your alarm off).

  1. It’s impossible to go to work late. Well, almost.

You work where you live and any place as long as there is an internet connection, so it’s impossible to be late… unless you’re stuck on a desert Island with no wifi?

Speaking of having a stable internet connection, Maxis has a very affordable home broadband plan which ensures seamless connectivity. Remember to take advantage of the Maxis promo codes available to you when you subscribe to Maxis!

  1. Nap Time Anytime.

Working from home means that you’ll never be far from the comfort of your bed and you can take a quick nap for a quick recharge.
