Working From Home

February 11, 2020 Back to all news

Working from home can be challenging at times. We have a few tips to help you ease in to it:

1.) Designate a working area

2.) Create a routine/ schedule

3.)  Update your boss daily 

4.) If you have children set boundaries 

5.) Take routine breaks

6.) Alternate shifts with your partner if possible

 

1.) Designate a working area

Find a place at home where you can focus and feel comfortable, whether be it the kitchen or the living room. Try avoid the bedroom if possible.

2.) Create a routine/ schedule

Mapping out your day will help set your expectations and give structure to your day.

3.) Update your boss daily

Checking in with your boss on your daily productivity will put your boss at ease and also yourself. You'll be surprised on how much more motivated you'll be prior to check ins.

4.) If you have children set boundaries

Setting expectations with your children will ease them into your daily routine and help them respect your need to work in a designated area uninterrupted.

5.) Take routine breaks

Make sure to remember to take regular breaks away from your desk. Go for that walk or make that cup of tea or coffee in the kitchen away from your work place.

6.) Alternate shifts with your partner if possible

This will not always be possible but with flexible working becoming more of a norm it can be for some. Try alternating shifts with your partner so you feel you have more space and the freedom to take calls when needed. DAC will be holding a live seminar on Remote Working Top Tips on the 7th April at 13.00, to join follow this link. This digital seminar will inform employees of tactics to bring into their routine to ensure a smooth transition, maintain productivity, and create a sense of camaraderie with co-workers.
