Структура Argument-led эссе

Computers and modems have made it possible for office workers to do much of their work from home instead of working in offices every day. Working from home should be encouraged as it is good for workers and employers. Do you agree or disagree?

You should write at least 250 words

Для написания данного эссе более всего подойдет the argument-led approach, потому что необходимо обсудить преимущества и недостатки удаленной работы и работы в офисе.


Start with a general overview of the question to show you have

analyzed it.

In recent years the vast expansion of information and communication technology has made office life much more practical. Although in many cases office workers could be made geographically independent by using modems, faxes and cell phones. Few companies or employees take full advantage of this opportunity.

You need to produce at least one but no more than three arguments


Argument 1

Working from an office helps to create the right atmosphere in which people can work productively towards common goals. Staff can resolve problems much more easily face to face than at a distance.

Supporting point

Moreover, the open-space design of modern day offices suggests that people work more efficiently as a team than as individuals with separate offices.

Counter argument 1

However, it seems to me that physical proximity with colleagues is no longer necessary for communication.

Supporting point

Computers and modems, as well as audio and video conferencing software have made it possible for groups of people to be with each other in a ‘virtual’ office where the can see each other and talk without the need to do so one at a time. These communities can be created with the participants working from different places, including home.


Argument 2

Another issue is the encouragement and motivation of staff, who need to reach performance targets if their work is to contribute to the overall profitability of the company.

Supporting point

Supervision of staff, for this reason, is essential for their motivation. This can best be done in a professional, rather than a domestic, environment.

Counter argument 2

Motivation, on the other hand, is best when it comes from the individual worker him/herself.

Supporting point

Finally, when someone is fully motivated and requires no supervision, there is the computer technology to support working from home in most cases.


You must give an

opinion and a reason for it in the conclusion

Although it depends on the kind of work, in general, it is my firm opinion that home working is the best option, because this allows companies to keep operating costs to a minimum. It is only effective, however, when the individual worker can work without supervision and needs no external motivation.
