5 Tips To Work From Home Efficiently

This concept has probably been implemented at some of your offices, or your suppliers or clients offices. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak worldwide, many are now caught in the dilemma of having their staff work remotely.

Leaving the office behind has been a popular trend for a while, but to keep it sustainable and productive; here are a few pointers to make the transition smoother and more conducive for both yourself and your organisation.

 Tip # 1

Set time schedules

Ensure that you are available during work hours is key to collaboration when one works remotely. As your colleagues cannot see you at your desk, ensure that you set up your scheduling and update immediately if there are any changes. If you need to step out for more than 15 minutes, clear it with your team so there is no miscommunication if they are not getting any response from you. 

 Tip # 2

Communicate often 

It is important to let everyone know if you are in front of your computer or not. It is necessary to maintain a clear communication path with your colleagues. In today’s digital era, there are many different chat applications that will enable teams to work remotely. 

 Tip # 3

Minimise distractions

As we are not bound to a desk in an office environment, we’re prone to work in an assumed comfortable position. You may be tempted to sit at the comfort of the sofa with the television running in the background, thinking that this is the perk, but it is counterproductive. It is best to set up a designated working space to emulate a productive home office. Minimise distractions like TV but have calming music playing in the background to eliminate the feeling of having the walls closing in on you. 

 Tip # 4

A good environment

Productivity highly depends on your posture and sitting position. Just because you are at home, it doesn’t mean that you are going to be able to lie in bed trying to get work done, where it is a video conference, concall or replying emails. To have maximum focus and efficiency, have good lighting, invest in an ergonomic chair that allows you to sit comfortably with good lumbar support and if possible, a height adjustable table that will allow you to sit or stand when needed. Moving your spot to another in your home also functions the same way, just make sure the environment is also conducive for work.

 Tip # 5

Set boundaries
