With the advancement of the pandemic, many companies have been led to implementing remote work to protect their employees and this change in work performance generates several challenges for them. The worker now has to adapt and maintain the same posture with good performance and productivity.
Putting these points into practice ultimately ensures efficiency and productivity in their tasks:
- Dealing with mental and physical health
Once at home with no form of contact with the outside and friends, there are not so many opportunities to live together and this can lead to a wave of strong emotions like sadness or anxiety.
To combat these emotional changes, it is advisable to share your thoughts with someone close to you and whom you can trust - always keeping your social distance.
Additionally, establishing a plan for physical activity can also improve our emotional stability.
- Create a space dedicated to Work
When choosing a specific space for work, it is convenient to opt for areas away from leisure areas to avoid distractions, keeping the focus on professional activity. This measure is intended to ensure that personal life does not interfere with professional life, creating a barrier between the two.
- Avoid distractions
In case there are other remote workers at home it is necessary to respect each one's space and ensure concentration at work. If there are children at home, it is necessary to ensure that they also receive proper attention and, if possible, define shifts with the partner to ensure minimum interference.
In remote working, it is very easy to interrupt what is being done and reduce productivity at work. It is important to have autonomous time management, avoiding as much as possible other activities that distract you from your work during that time. Some measures to prevent such a situation is the distribution of work in reasonable intervals of time, however, it is also important to take some breaks during the day and leave home even at lunchtime.
- Maintaining organization
It is important to maintain a routine, that is, to have a routine similar to the office and to comply with the defined schedule before moving to remote work. The creation of lists of the various tasks to be done during each day, taking into account the long-term and short-term objectives, helps to maintain the organization, motivation, and above all concentration.
