Businesses globally are opting for hybrid workplaces - where people are no longer limited by conference rooms, offices and geographical areas. Not only do many employees globally have the opportunity to work from home, but also many companies are recruiting digital “additions” to their team. This has many benefits, such as multilingual and multifunctional teams, smaller recruitment and office management costs.
And the current global situation proved just how many of the traditional jobs can be done in a flexible, remote manner.
The problem many businesses are facing now is that managing these offices is becoming increasingly difficult. The manager can no longer peep over the shoulder of their employees and see what they are doing or arrange a quick meeting in the conference room with all the people there.
Here are a couple of tips to stay organised while working in the new offices of the twenty first century:
As your home becomes your workspace, the lines between work and personal time get blurred, and eventually result in burnout. To avoid doing that rest needs to be introduced systematically. Occasional rest - between every couple hours of work take a bit of time off to relax your eyes and body. Weekly rest - actually relaxing on the weekend and not letting work trickle in. Rest on vacation - after a period of work, say a couple months, taking a vacation, even a short one is a must!
