Novus Provides Top 5 Tips for Working from Home
Our company offices have everything we need to work comfortably and efficiently – ergonomic chairs, office machines, computer networks, and reliable internet. Working from home requires us to improvise, using space not necessarily intended as an office. We can help! We’ve put together 5 tips for creating a home workspace that’s productive, comfortable, and secure.
CREATE A DEDICATED SPACE-A spare room, a corner of your bedroom or even a spacious stair landing are great choic-es. Make sure you have easy access to an electrical outlet, adequate space for a chair, work surface, computer, and other necessi-ties that you need to stay productive.
FOLLOW ERGONOMIC GUIDELINES-Use a pillow and a footstool to support prop-er posture. To reduce eye strain, position your monitor 18″ away and adjust for a com-fortable height. An adjustable monitor arm will help you find the perfect viewing position more easily.
GOOD LIGHTING IS KEY-Natural light is best, but if that’s not possible look for lamps that can adequately illuminate your workspace. Task lights with adjustable brightness allow you to find the ideal inten-sity for comfort. Avoid using overhead lights which can cause glare and lead to eyestrain.
REDUCE DISTRACTIONS-Try noise-canceling headphones or earbuds for focus by listening to music or ambient sounds. Plus, you’ll improve sound quality during phone and video calls and reduce background interference.
FOLLOW SECURITY BEST PRACTICES-Always follow your company’s remote work security guidelines and make sure your household wi-fi is protected and your pass-words are strong. If you print sensitive doc-uments at home, consider a deskside shred-der for added protection.
We’ve hand-picked monitor arms, light-ing, shredders, and more from Dahle and Novus that enhance your ergonomic comfort, install easily in small spaces, and ensure document security at home.
