I’ve had the nice privilege of personally working from home for about 5 years, and this article by PC magazine is excellent.  It is important to setup formal workspace at home & schedule of availability.  Also ensure your home office has great high speed Internet capabilities, proper seating, docking station, large monitor(s) and business telephone capabilities. As I have around 2 hours of computing time per day, I often give that back to company in appreciation of this excellent privilege

And ensure best security practices of staying up-to-date on security updates & anti-virus protection.  Also use commercial grade equipment from company itself, which will be built around best safety standards — including especially VPN based access into the network.  But most importantly, give your employer an honest day’s work & contribute in a manner where you are just as productive as a virtual team member as you would be in the office

And always keep in mind that violations of trust & productivity will result in loss of this excellent privilege for not only yourself but possibly others in office.
