Work near your home

When I set up my office, I choose a place that is near my home. It takes me 5 minutes to drive to my office. I employ people who stay nearby, so that the travelling time is short.

I wish to encourage more people to work near their home or to move their home near their place of work. This will reduce travelling time and congestion on the road.

When looking for a job, give priority to work near your home (even if the salary is lower or the prospect is modest). When looking for workers, choose those that live near the place of work, even if the quality is just acceptable.

This will help to improve the quality of life for everyone, and reduce congestion on the road.


  1. Working near home is the best, however working at home a few days a month will be better. I hope more companies in Singapore can allow employees to work from home a couple of days per week.

  2. its ideal, but the way the govt plans, u dont hv a choice when almost everything is jam packed at a few major locations - CBD, Marina, etc.
