5 tips to work productively from home
It is increasingly common to work from home these days. Sometimes because there is no other option. However, there is a big difference between working from the office and working from home. DATA KINGDOM gives 5 tips to work from home as productively as possible.
Work in task-oriented blocks
The average concentration span of an adult is between 15 and 45 minutes. The good news is that we can renew our attention span. However, an adult also needs 5 to 15 minutes for this. Therefore, try to work in blocks of maximum 1 to 2 hours. Divide the activities into chunks of 1 to 1.5 hours and agree with yourself that you can take a short break after completing this activity.
Make sure you take breaks regularly. When you work from home, you secretly start to miss that annoying colleague (who always bothers you with nonsense stories while getting coffee). To ensure that you remain socially connected with your colleagues, it is an idea to schedule a video call in which you can discuss something light-hearted and the issues of the day.
Stay informed of the current status
It is very easy in your own environment to focus on matters that have your own priorities. However, it remains important not to lose sight of the organization’s main objectives. To avoid having to organize a series of meetings – purely to discuss the status – an organization can choose to online dashboard
to make available. On a KPI dashboard home workers can view the current status at any time. This prevents meetings where too many people actually have to be present to hear what is going on. With a dashboard, everyone can stay informed, but still work effectively at their own pace.
