HP – Maximise your workspace

DISCOVER 5 WAYS TO MAXIMIZE ANY WORKSPACE AT HOME WITH THESE TIPS

In a March 2020 HP Survey, 96% of office employees are at home now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.1 With the majority of the global workforce transitioning from the office to a home workspace, we are faced with a new set of challenges, trying to balance pets, family, and work in our new day to day. Whether you live in a small apartment or have a dedicated home office, the size of your workspace may differ but the key to working from home is figuring out how it can work best for you.

TIGHT QUARTERS? DESIGN A WORKSPACE TO HELP SEPARATE WORK AND PLAY

Not all homes have dedicated spaces for a full-size desk, secondary display, keyboard and mouse. To get the most out of the space you have, try to repurpose an existing area, like the kitchen table or living room coffee table, to help distinguish work time from free time. Your new commute may be from your workspace to the couch but by assigning a specific area for work, it mentally allows you to “leave the office” at the end of the day.

PRIORITISE WELLBEING AND ERGONOMICS

Schedule intermittent mental and physical breaks throughout the day for yourself. Being online at all hours doesn’t mean you’ll be more productive. On the contrary, “static sitting can cause slowed metabolism, neck pain, back pain and reduced concentration, impacting mental and cognitive abilities”.
