Setting Up an Efficient Home Office
March 17, 2020
Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind!
Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity. There are a lot of options for height-adjustable desking that allows you to sit/stand throughout the day and Teknion has various options like the Emote, hiSpace or the Navigate.
Seating is just as important as your desking for an efficient home office so take the time to select and invest in a comfortable chair; ergonomics and comfort count when it comes to
sitting. We have endless options: Contessa, Sabrina and the Projek office chairs and for a quick, cost-effective option, check out our Outlet Store online! www.interscapeoutet.com
Once you get your chair and desk figured out, investing in a table lamp is essential if you do not have ample natural lighting. A desk lamp that has various brightness levels will accommodate the days' needs; whitest/brightest lighting for an office feel and then a softer tone when unwinding at the end of day. The Sanna Lightbar moves to adjust with different work environments and Complements Desk Lamp can be freestanding or mountable.
If a business' systems are not properly organized, tasks pile up, paperwork gets lost and valuable time is spent on finding information that should be readily available. Even if you aim to be paperless, there are always some hard documents you need to save and being organized is important for your mental health and productivity. Filing and Storage cabinets are best to keep these documents safe for those important clients and projects. Being successful in a home office requires creating an office space that promotes efficiency in a non-traditional work environment.
