RAFALSKI, Julia Carolina  and  ANDRADE, Alexsandro Luiz De. Home-office: exploratory aspects of work from home. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.2, pp. 431-441. ISSN 1413-389X.

New global configurations produce different modifications on work, routine and information management procedures. The home-office, work made from home, is among new work strategies that arose in 1970's, which achieved greater prominence in recent years. This paper aims to understand aspects of work and psychosocial variables surrounding 74 professionals (M= 38.2 e SD= 8.8) that reported to work or have worked in home-office. Participants answered an online questionnaire with open and closed questions, which responses were analyzed with content analysis and frequency. Results show that 62 participants worked from home-office at the moment of the research, being the main advantage of this model of work the flexibility of hours and the most recurrent disadvantage was the lack of socialization. Participants cited problems in professional and personal terms, such as implications for health and family life and also exposed positive counterpoints in the same areas. As an exploratory research, additional studies are required to expand the knowledge in this field in Brazil.
