With the COVID-19 Pandemic outbreak around the world, many organisations have come to a standstill. Many companies have implemented work-from-home policies so that the employees stay safe and the company stays running.
All the major IT firms have asked their employees to work from home during the COVID-19 outbreak. But, a lot of employees are facing issues in following the same. Working from home is not an easy task, especially when you have your family around.
Many businesses yield lesser benefits when their employees are working from home. Even the employees that are working from home find it difficult to work from their house, especially with family and kids around.
Tips to ensure productivity during COVID-19 WFH
Set a schedule
Instead of lazing around and starting to work late, set a fixed schedule during the COVID-19 WFH. Try to get as formal as possible, as it will help in making your mind ready for the day. Get up as your usual office schedule, avoid wearing very casual homely clothes.
Have fixed working hours
Set a schedule for you to work. Make sure that you choose the time when you are the most productive, e.g., in the morning between 8 am to 12 pm. Take regular breaks in between work and spend time with family and talk to friends. This way, you won’t be bored with work, and you’ll spend enough time with your family as well.
Allot a corner of your house as your working area
Allot a portion of your house as your working area and make sure that no one disturbs you while working. The working area can be an extra room that no one uses, or it can be a corner of your house. Try to make the place that you sit and work as formal as possible, which will help you in setting the right mood to work efficiently and deliver exceptional results during the COVID-19 WFH.
Ensure that you have a fully functional workstation
Even before you choose to work from home, make sure that you have a system that can support all your work. Once you sit, you should be able to proceed with and complete your job without any hindrances. Therefore, ensuring that you have an efficient and functional workstation with all the required software and files in place is needed.
