The number of companies that are switching to remote work has significantly grown in recent years. As a result, employers are increasingly trying to find best way organize their teams' distance work, coordinate actions, and monitor efficiency.
Numerous studies have shown that people who telework are happier, more engaged and productive. The possibility of working from home provides them with a number of very important benefits, and here are the main ones:
- An undeniable advantage of telecommuting is the fact that employees do not spend time traveling to the office and back, which means that they can devote more time to their families or a favorite hobby, maintaining a better work-life balance.
- Saving money that would otherwise be spent on commuting, lunches, and office clothes.
- Data shows that those who work from home are healthier – they have a lower risk of catching a cold or a virus and are, overall, less stressed out.
- Teleworkers can plan their time and work at their own pace.
- Thanks to high-speed Internet, people can work from their homes, from a cafe or a vacation house. It is a great option for those who are tired of being in one place and want a change of scenery.
- Remote work is also beneficial for employers, because they have the opportunity to find the right employee in any corner of the country, and hire the best professionals in their field.
Workers rely on special software that facilitates seamless remote work. Some apps help keep track of working hours while other solutions record completed tasks. Employees can work via a remote desktop by connecting from a personal computer to a shared server and complete projects in a virtual workplace with access to all the documents and files.
Modern technologies make it possible to keep connected with colleagues from the comfort of your own home. People can take part in meetings, receive assignments, discuss work-related issues or exchange professional opinions via messengers or teleconferencing software. E-mail is a convenient means to communicate official documents and important information. With the help of videoconferencing, you can hold regular e-meetings with your team to ensure that everybody is on the same page. For companies that use this channel of communication, a mobile TV stand is an ideal solution. This device will allow you to mount a TV onto it, connect the webcam, and conduct the meeting from anywhere in the office with colleagues or partners that are hundreds or thousands of miles away.
When switching to teleworking, one should take the time to properly organize their workspace. A separate room, a part of the living room or a bedroom (or even a balcony) are perfect for this purpose. It is better to set up a traditional workplace with everything you might find in an office: a desk, a comfortable chair, a lamp, stationery, etc. This will help you be more productive.
To successfully tackle daily tasks from the comfort of home, a teleworker must have a reliable high-speed Internet connection as well as a laptop or a computer. A call center operator or a sales manager may need a headset, while an illustrator or a designer will benefit from a drawing tablet.
A monitor arm is a perfect device to properly equip the workspace. ONKRON monitor mounts include models for one, two or even four screens. Thanks to our wide selection of mounts and various features that they have, it is possible to organize the workplace so that things such as lighting or desk size are taken into account. An important advantage of using a desktop mount is that it frees up valuable desk space.
ONKRON mounts with the “gas lift” technology are especially popular today. Smooth and precise vertical adjustment allows you to move the computer monitor up and down, left and right, stopping it where you need it. This is made possible by the use of a strong and reliable gas spring. No tools are required to set the screen at the best viewing angle, and even 360° rotation is available.
