6 Tips for Working Remotely
A Computer 💻
The computer is one of the most critical technological advances made in the last 100 years (in my opinion at least). Having a computer not only allows employees to tend to their clients needs remotely but they are also able to remain connected to internal communications, attend virtual meetings, purchase products and services for the company as well as pay bill in addition to much more.
A Dedicated Workspace 🖥
If you are like so many that previously did not have a workspace at home, you’ve had to resort to makeshift offices. Whether that means moving appliances aside and using the countertop as a desk, or using the corner of your bedroom and that nice sofa as space. Having a dedicated workspace makes the transition from “home” to “work” easier. It also assists in remaining focused and on task.
Stable Internet 🌐
What good is a computer is you do not have stable internet connection. Especially if you are like me and are in virtual meetings all throughout the day. Having a stable network connection in critical to mastering the remote working environment.
Video conferencing capability 🎥
Being remote does not mean you have to be disconnected. With many platforms such as Zoom and Google Hangouts making it easier to videoconference, staying in front of your fellow employees, clients and partner companies is just a matter of turning on the computer and putting on a headset.
Earphones and headset 🎧
Being able to remain present during virtual meetings and while interacting with employees, supervisors, clients, and others is a must. As such, having a reliable pair of headphones and/ or headset is a must-have.
