Working From Home and Staying Productive

Working from home.  The hard new reality for many of us today.    Working from home and staying productive will need to be a priority for many people in the coming weeks and months. Given the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many employers are now requiring all “non essential” staff to work remotely for the sake of their health, as well as the well-being of their loved ones.

For many people, working from home is nothing new, but for others it is going to require a whole new way of working and thinking.

I came across this great blog on working from home and staying productive,  written by one of our manufactures, Artopex. Rather than recreate the wheel, I thought I would share that article her. The article does a wonderful job outlining a few tips that will help employees with the remote work transition while maintaining the same level of productivity. Click here to read the article.  Let us help you get your home office set up for SUCCESS.  If your current home office is not allowing you to function in a healthy and productive manner, now is the time to make the necessary changes to keep you successful in a work-at-home environment.

Defining a set space and making sure that space is well lit and organized are certainly at the top of the priority list. But equally important is getting a good ergonomic task chair and height adjustable work-surface to sit and work at on a daily basis. This really isn’t something many of you have ever thought about, at least not to this level–what will be your “new normal”.

We all have a little area carved out in our home where we sit down to pay our bills or surf the internet. Not to mention that ‘great bargain chair’ we got from some big box store. Trust me, I have been there too! But when you are going to be sitting in a space, 8 hours a day, for weeks or months at a time–the requirements are different. MUCH DIFFERENT. It won’t be long before the wrong office set-up will start causing back and/or neck issues, headaches, eye sight and concentration issues. It is just a matter of time before your productivity starts to fall off–and then that great “I get to work from home” mentality takes a sharp turn in the wrong direction–for you and your employer. Act now and get ahead of it.
