Helpful Hints For Working At Home

Many people have worked from home for years, but it is not for everyone. Unfortunately, with the COVID-19 pandemic we simply do not have a choice. The good news is that we can learn from those that are productive and successful when working remotely. Here are a few hints:

  • Find and set up a proper and quiet workplace where you can concentrate and avoid distractions.
  • Keep your regular routine for waking up and going to the office.
  • Set regular office hours as if you are at the office.
  • Plan your workday/schedule as if you are in the office.
  • Take breaks and make sure to get some exercise.
  • Communication is key and use all tools available including phone, email, text and online meetings.
  • Equipment should be updated and current and if your internet goes down, have a hotspot backup.
  • Make sure you have appropriate internet speed, especially with others working or schooling at home.
  • If you’re attending virtual meetings, make sure that you test your connections. If you’re hosting those meetings, make sure that you are on early and you have practiced content and technology usage.
  • Make sure that you have boundaries and your family understands that you are there to do a job.
  • Find ways to have some fun both at home and virtually with your coworkers. Remember, we’re all in the same boat.
