Remote Working Resources
During the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, remote working became the norm. Many employees were required to work from home for their companies due to the restriction on travel and movement. Of course, advances in technology and internet connectivity has meant that many people had already become accustomed to telecommuting on occasion. However, this was a far cry from the requirement to work full time from home for months at a time. Add to this the fact that many people were also juggling home schooling whilst trying to earn a living which many found extremely challenging.
Many have found that teleworking suits them for lifestyle reasons or due to family commitments. Ditching the daily commute has meant that many are able to save time and money, and their stress levels are also down as a result!
There are various aspects of this virtual working that need to be considered such as:
- Finding a suitable place to set up a home office
- Staying motivated and productive while home working
- Maintaining an adequate work-life balance
Working remotely is not suitable for all, and many people will be glad to get back to their normal place of work as soon as possible. However, for many companies, remote working has always been part of their work culture and, in a post COVID-19 world, remote teams are here to stay.
