What's the best way to ask your boss if you can work from home? Well, in this article you will find the best techniques to talk to your boss about remote work. 

If you would like to work from home, you’ll need to be able to make your case and it's best to put it in writing. Send your supervisor a letter or an email, outlining the reasons why you think working from home would benefit the company.

You’ll need to be able to make your case and it's best to put it in writing

Be clear in your letter about what you are requesting. Do you want to work from home one day a week, every day, or simply occasionally? Set the parameters of how this would work from a scheduling perspective. 

For instance, if you have a brutal rush-hour commute that you want to avoid, you might say in your letter, "The traffic on my commute is horrendous, and it's impossible for me to get to work before 9:30 a.m. Often, I'm eager to get my day started before then. If I were able to work from home two days a week, I'd be able to be at my desk focused on projects and setting up meetings earlier in the day."

Be clear in your letter about what you are requesting

Don’t say you’d like to work from home because you'd prefer to wear pajamas, need to take care of a child for an hour, want to avoid a co-worker, or for any reason that might make you appear unprofessional or as though you'll be less diligent when you work from home.
