Working at home can either be your ally or enemy in terms of productivity. There are essential factors that you must consider when working from home, including work discipline, environment, interaction and communication with coworkers, and other tools integration.
Here are the 5 must-haves for your home office:
Telephone related gadgets
Communication is essential to businesses and work. And a stable communication is one of the ingredients of work and business. The main way people communicate is a landline telephone. Although it may sound ancient, with its stability and high-quality sound, it’s still the most effective simple communication we have today.
Other gadgets that can add functionality to communication:
Speaker phone – Speaker phones allow you to speak to a person or team on the other line while doing other tasks that need both your hands including typing, dressing, shaving, tying your shoe laces, etc.
Wireless USB headphones – you could use it for accepting Skype calls and listening to computer audio. Wireless features will minimize the clutter on your table.
Cordless phone and headset – this is a wireless version of landline telephone. It has clear and stable communication with less clutter on the table.
Having a backup for your files is essential for your business. Now, you can use cloud services to automatically backup your files. Other functions of cloud servers are saving computer memory and easy access on files wherever you are.
High speed internet Access
The Internet is a portal to all information and tools that are useful to businesses. A high speed connection allows you to save time from downloading and uploading files and faster browsing.
Comfortable working environment
A working environment is often less emphasized when it comes to productivity… but having a comfortable working environment will make us more productive and effective. Comfortable environment means ergonomic and highly organized.
