WORKING FROM HOME …. KEEPING YOUR COOL

As the Covid-19 crisis subsides and economies can now look to reopen, companies large and small are planning their post-pandemic return to work structure. It is becoming more evident that fewer employees will be returning to the office place, and those that have been working from home will continue to do so, albeit on a part time basis.  Recent announcements from large UK based firms confirm that they will, where possible, be implementing a 3-2 plan for employees, requiring them to work from home a minimum of 2 days per week.

WORKING FROM HOME IS HERE TO STAY…

Many of us will feel uneasy about returning to the daily commute to the office, the thought of cramming into crowded trains or squeezing into packed lifts is not something we are looking forward to.

Encouragingly, studies show that we tend to work from home in a highly efficient manner.  On a personal level for us, it is quieter, safer, and less distracting. A mixture of working from home and the office, will keep us happy and motivated, and offer a more balanced working life.

Due to the pandemic, we have in effect all been subject to one of the largest experiments in home working and there are plenty of statistics that prove the benefits not only to employees, but also the positive effect it has on the efficiency, productivity and ultimately profitability for companies.

So, if this new trend is set to stay, what can we do to make our home office a place where we can work comfortably and efficiently?

In our previous article 10 tips working from home during coronavirus we explain in more detail what simple measures we can take to improve productivity when working from home. However, coming out of the pandemic, given that the home office is going to become the norm, we look at permanent solutions to make your home office environment a comfortable, productive, and healthy place to be.

HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT FOR YOUR HOME OFFICE

It is especially important to have a dedicated workspace, free from distraction, to maintain focus and concentration levels. For most people this will mean converting a spare room, a garage or quiet corner in a larger room to a bespoke office area. Choosing the perfect office chair or desk is relatively straight forward, but during the working day the ideal ambient air temperature is equally, if not more, important.

Throughout the winter months it is easier to regulate the room temperature, however during the hot and humid summer months, working from home could become extremely uncomfortable. If the space where you are working has poor air quality, then you will not be in a good position to perform at your best.

Leaving windows and doors open for long periods of time can present security issues, distractions from outside traffic noise, or an invasion of unwanted insects, however keeping windows shut, will cause temperatures and humidity to rise quickly, especially if you use heat producing electronic devices.
