The Corona crisis is forcing many employees to work from home. But working remotely can be a win-win situation for both sides. Working from in home office offers the opportunity to maintain work processes, while ensuring the company’s ability to operate. The “emergency solution from home office” could also result in new regulations in your company for the future. Studies show that the productivity of employees working from home can increase by up to 13 percent. In order to keep productivity and motivation high in the home office, the office in your home should be structured, but also comfortably furnished. With a few tricks and objects such as lamps and wall clocks, we will show you how this can be achieved.
A well-equipped workplace is worth its weight in gold not only for your comfort, but also for your health. A mouse, keyboard, a large screen and a comfortable office chair including a healthy posture make working from home easier and prevent back problems in the long term, for example.
The right lighting in the home office
Proper lighting in the workplace is important for the protection of your eyes. The monitor’s blue light is the main cause of stress for the eyes and should not be exposed to bad light while reading. We have selected two different table lamps for the right lighting in the workplace. The Leitmotiv LM1914BK table lamp Steady is a black lamp, that looks very much like a classical desk lamp. If you want something more modern, you can choose the home sweet home table lamp D734024-21 NETTING, for example.
Time always in sight.
You should also always keep an eye on the time while working remotely. Because here, too, it is important to take breaks, to think about appointments and, above all, to finish work on time. As an office clock, we recommend the Newgate NUMONE149PGY as a simple, easy-to-read wall clock. As well as the Karlsson KA5683BK as a table clock.
All appointments ready
Calendars, planners and other small reminders such as post-its help to have every appointment and every online meeting ready on screen. However, some also like to collect ideas and compile them into a vision board. Pin boards such as those from Present Time (only German website available) are the most suitable option for this task. This also looks particularly modern thanks to its black grid.
