First Month of Remote Work – Blog of Tomas VaraneckasDec 04
It has been over a month since I started working remotely. After having to physically go to work for the past 10 years or so, it was something unthinkable.
I’ve set up a home office in a tiny room with no windows, and so far it beats any open plan office I could think of. It’s cozy, dead silent, full of my personal belongings, and it’s perfect for achieving high levels of concentration.
Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight
Remote workers often find out, like Tomas, that with a proper setup it’s easier to focus on the tasks at hand. Being able to perform a higher quality of work is one of the greatest benefits of teleworking.
The storyline here, though, echoes the sentiment we hear from many of our clients’ end users–it’s hard to make a clean break from work time to personal time. One of the things we make a point of focusing on during training sessions with a client organization is that it’s important to get in a routine and to take breaks.
While telework is usually exciting for employees at first, many easily grow to resent what feels like an increased, endless workload. It’s important that your corporate culture allows for work & life, especially for employees in a remote environment.
