Home-sourcing

Direct Interactions provides work from home jobs for U.S.-based workers, caregivers, military family members, and people with disabilities who are physically unable to commute.

We’re able to provide these work from home opportunities via “homesourcing.” Homesourcing is the transfer of service industry employment from offices to home-based employees with appropriate telephone and internet facilities.

Businesses avoid having to hire and train additional workers and maintain costly facilities, while workers avoid stressful daily commutes, expensive work attire, etc. Instead, that time is better spent at home with their loved ones.
