Three Tips for Working at Home

Category: GeneralPublished on 2020 Mar, 25

Find out how TDS is managing to work remotely with these three tips!

As governments have ordered businesses to close and citizens to practice “social-distancing”, more Americans are working remotely than ever before. For some, working from home may be a part of their daily routine. However, for others, it is unfamiliar territory that may require a bit of an adjustment. We wanted to share three tips we are practicing at TDS Networks that have helped make the transition from office to our homes smooth and enjoyable.  


Establishing Your Space:

Having a dedicated space to work is a key aspect when working from home. Setting aside an area that you can call your “professional zone” will help you get into “work-mode” whenever you sit down. Make sure this space is clean, organized and free of distractions. If you are used to a formal office, it may help to replicate that environment in your work-from-home space. For example, if you have a two-monitor set up at the office, it may be useful to do the same at home.

Set up a Schedule:

Setting up a strict schedule can help you and your team stay on task with your deliverables when working remotely. It is as simple as scheduling a conference call with your team to discuss objectives for the day or sending a daily email presenting the tasks that each team member is responsible for. Whichever way you decide to go, make sure your team has a schedule and sticks to it the best they can.

Check-in Constantly:

There is nothing wrong with over-communication! Update your boss frequently on everything you are working on, give them a call and ask for advice, communicate with your teammates so you are all on the same page. When working remotely, you can easily lose the communication you are familiar with having at the office. Make sure you stay in touch and do so often.
