Home Office

Remote working means you don't have the comfort of having a work environment and an office. Therefore you have to come up with a designated working station. Find a private and quiet space where you can effectively perform your duties without any unforeseen interruptions. If you have a bigger residential space you can allocate one of the rooms to be your home office. When picking a space to use as a home office it’s important to take into consideration the image you will be presenting to your clients and fellow workmates. During video meetings, every person will have a chance to view your background setting. The working space shouldn't have anything distracting which is visible to the camera. Proper lighting is also very important, some people use shoji screens or hang curtains to create a separate working space.  Get everything you need for your home office. This means you have to consult with your supervisor on the necessary tools and resources you will need to effectively complete your work remotely. This might mean learning new systems that will be used by your colleagues when working remotely. The home office should be comfortable, with ample lighting and space. A desk and a comfortable chair are some of the basic things you will need in your home office.
