The Nomadic Employee: Working From Home (WFH)

The Nomadic Employee: Working From Home (WFH)

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a year of change. The global pandemic has had an impact on all of our lives, from the way that we see our friends and family, to the way that we work. One of the biggest changes has been an increase in people having to work from home. 

Remote working has seen a definite increase during 2020 and it looks like despite the hopes for 2021, things may stay much the same. With this in mind, let’s take a look at not only how best to set up for remote working, but also how this can improve your efficiency. 

The benefits of remote working

There are plenty of great things about working from home. One of the best is that you get to work to a schedule that can fit in with your family life. Although you may have to support the business hours, it is still much more flexible than being stuck at the office. 

Another great thing about working from home is the lack of commute which saves time and money.

Some people worry that they’ll be more distracted working from home, but lots of people find that it is much easier to focus as the office environment can be overwhelming at times.

How to make the most of remote working

Now you know the benefits of working from home, you might want to know more about how to make sure your setup is going to maximise your efforts. You should, if you can, have a spot in your home which is dedicated to your remote office. This needs to be away from some of the main distractions that you may find around your home and be a space that you can really focus in.

You also need to make sure that you are comfortable whilst you are working. You shouldn’t be perched on the end of the bed or huddled in a corner, you need to be able to sit properly and have room to move. 

Finally, you need access to all the things that you would use at work. This includes the right systems, internet and a phone line if required and any relevant paperwork too. 

Once you have all these in place, you will find that you can be just as productive, if not more so.
