A recent article, Tips for Staying Productive While Working From Home by Joel Goldstein says that many companies are opting to move to a remote workspace where employee turnover is narrowed, employees morale and efficiency are improved, rental and maintenance fees are reduced and many other benefits. However, some workers may find the change difficult to manage and adjust to.
Here are techniques to stay productive through the change.
Choose your most productive hours.
You don’t have to work hours that aren’t conducive to when you function best. If you can’t wake up early in the morning to start your day then plan to sleep in and work late. Working when you are most productive makes the most sense.
Make it clear you’re busy working.
Make it clear to your family and friends they should treat you as if you’re still working in a team office space and assume you’re not around.
Set a completely separate workspace.
Set a completely secluded space and design it like an executive office space so the moment you enter the room, it’s time to get busy.
Organize your tasks.
Schedule time in the morning so you can create a to-do list and finish important tasks immediately. If possible, schedule your calls in the afternoon so you can fully concentrate on the content of the meeting instead of worrying about thinking about all the things you still need to do.
Keep in touch.
Make sure you have technology to use to keep in touch with your coworkers, whether it be email or video chats to get that face time. Doing this makes you feel you’re part of a team with the knowledge a co-worker could collaborate with you any time.
