Change Is Here to Stay: Working from Home Reality
2020 and 2021 have been years unlike any other. The coronavirus pandemic forever left a mark on the way people live and work.
Even once the challenges of living and working during the pandemic subside, the mindset that comes with it seems set to stay. Many business practices and employee demands will change for good, and all need to be prepared for that.
Because of advancements in virtual and remote technology, the global overnight shift to remote work made flexible work arrangements of high value. And even though it started as a temporary transition, it has since proven to be a more permanent solution for many businesses.
Work from home is here to stay.
And although the flexibility of remote work is excellent, it does not come without its challenges.
Recent surveys have shown that many managers don’t approve of remote work, because they fear employees will slack off without the in-person oversight. But in fact, the opposite is true. Remote workers actually work more, as it is harder to switch off when your life and your work are all under one roof.
Millions of people now working from home on laptops at kitchen tables have the same problems. Pushing their kids and pets out of view during web meetings, not being able to concentrate on the task at hand because of loud music from the other room, etc.
Experts agree on one thing. Working from Home Reality is like any other work arrangement or work practice. For the work to be successful and for the worker to avoid the usual pitfalls, the ecology has to be set right.
But what does that mean?
Well, in a nutshell, it means setting up the home office in a way that minimises distractions and by extension maximises working hours. And the best way to do that is to have a home office that is separated from the rest of your home.
Yes, easier said than done. And for some people who live in a flat, it is an impossibility. For others, the quickest and most easy solution is an external home office.
But is that an expensive solution? No, it really is not.
