Setting up the Ultimate Home Office 

You don’t have to over-invest to revolutionise your work-from-home experience! Sometimes, just optimising the core essentials is enough to make “working remotely” work for you!

In this fast-paced world where a lot of your work can be done remotely, having your home office is a must and having the right setup can make your work-from-home time efficient, fun and sustainable. Here are the top four tips for setting up your own home office:

  1. Devices – Computer or laptop?

There are already a lot of desktops and laptops in the market. To make sure you get the right one, take into consideration the work you’re doing and the amount you’re willing to shell out. It’s important to know how much memory you’ll need to store and share files. It’s also important to gauge the space you have, there is nothing less appealing than walking into an crowded office.

  1. Software

Computers and laptops now come with basic applications but some jobs still require the use of specialised software. Depending on your line of work, you may need to ensure you have certain applications installed in your device. It’s best to talk to your employee and work out which ones you’ll need and if there are any alternatives you can use before forking out on expensive software.

  1. The Space

Natural light has been said to do wonder on brain function and your work environment can easily affect the way you do your tasks. This is why it’s important to make sure that even if you’re working from home, your work area is inspiring. Sometimes, a simple potted plant on your table or placing your work desk near a window can do wonders! Avoid clutter and even try and pin up some inspiring quotes.

  1. High-speed internet

A lot of businesses nowadays are highly-dependent on the internet. This is why it is of utmost importance to secure broadband connection that can keep up not only with your personal needs, but also your work needs.
