Studies show that over 50% of today’s workforce can feasibly work remote and that dispersed teams can be more productive thanks to less distractions, lack of commute, and ease of creating a balanced work-life.
How to keep from getting distracted
Kids, pets, spouse, laundry - there’s a lot to do at home and it’s not always easy to separate work from home when they’re co-located.
Maintain a work readiness routine:Wake up, take a shower, and dress for success; act as if you’re going to work and keep that mindset.
Designate a space: Wherever you’re located ensure the space is as organized and clean as it would be if you were in an office environment.
Take breaks: It’s easy to work non-stop, all day. Take a timeout to stretch, have a bite to eat, or get some fresh air - take a walk!
At the end of the day:Close your laptop and commit to separating work time from personal.
As employers, how do you ensure productivity?
Working remote lacks the natural conversation and rapport between co-workers. It’s important to maintain contact and alignment to prevent roadblocks. We use video calls for team and internal meetings, collaboration tools to stay organized, and meet live a few times a year at our Boulder headquarters.
