Simple Tips, As Working From Home Becomes A Strong Possibility

It's a strong possibility that large sections of the Irish workforce will be Working From Home in the near Future.

This seems to be cause for celebration and apprehension.

Netflix binges, not having to get dressed for work and constant access to snacks are some of the upsides.

However, productivity is not one of these upsides.

A spring of information has emerged on the internet and we have selected the top three for you to consider:

  1. Be Unavailable

    Be prepared to decline friend's invites' during your set working hours. Do not agree to be babysitter, taxi driver or wait around for the electrician during office hours. The saying goes 'Good Fences Make Good Neighbours'.

  2. Get Dressed

    The importance of this cannot be stressed enough. Regardless if you will have any human contact that day or not. Put on work clothes and shoes! This has positive psychological effects but also takes into account that you may get a surprise video call from the boss.

  3. Have A Strict Start and Finish Time

    If you usually start work at 9 in the office than the same is true for working at home. Creating a sense of deadline with work is crucial to being effective when working from home. If you haven't completed a piece of work by a set deadline than move on to the next job. Imagine your manager is checking your work regularly, to create a sense of urgency.
