Permanent request to work from home (present your proposal in person)

Subject: Request for In-Person Meeting

Hi [Boss’s first name],

I hope this email finds you well. 

Over the past [duration you’ve been working remotely, e.g., several months], I’ve had the opportunity to thrive in a remote work environment. 

Given the positive impact on my productivity and the potential benefits for our team, I am keen to discuss transitioning to permanent remote work.

Could we schedule a meeting to discuss this further? Here are some days and times to pick from:

  • [Day]: [Time slot]
  • [Day]: [Time slot]

If none of those work, let me know what works for you and I’ll make it happen.

This discussion will allow us to explore the advantages, potential concerns, and the framework necessary to make permanent remote work a success.

Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss this in more detail.

Best regards,

[Your name]
