Three Work From Home Tips

Three Work From Home Tips

Everyone is doing posts with work from home tips, it seems. So instead of repeating much of the advice that’s already out there, I figured I’d share three tips regarding working from home. Two of these are things I found helpful when I transitioned to working from home full time. The last one is relevant to being a remote employee, but moreso right now, because I’m seeing it a lot with more members of the workforce being pushed out of their offices and into their homes.

How Your Company Handles a Pandemic Speaks Volumes

How Your Company Handles a Pandemic Speaks Volumes

In my last post I talked about the fact that people are starting to pay more attention to how companies of all kinds treat their employees. I said:

They’re asking if workers are being provided with things to help keep them safe, regardless of whether or not they come into contact with customers. People are questioning when companies deem themselves “essential” and they don’t seem like they are.

Then eight months later we moved to Nashville, TN because he was offered an opportunity he couldn’t refuse. During that time I transitioned from being a standard office employee to being a full-time remote one and because of that I’ve not wanted to spend much additional time in front of my computer.

Now that there’s a pandemic, taking some time to sit in front of the computer longer than I usually do doesn’t really seem to be that big of a deal. I’ve got nowhere to go and nothing else to do (except laundry… there’s always laundry). March was a wild ride, kicking off with a tornado causing catastrophic damage just blocks from our new place, displacing us for four days and leaving us with an empty fridge. And now COVID-19.
