How To Prepare To Transition To Remote Working

23 March 2022

Remote working no longer requires any introduction. We’ve all done it, we know what it’s about and what it entails. Perhaps you have a remote working position now, perhaps you’re interested in finding one. Or maybe, you’re right now transitioning into a remote working role.

The question is, how prepared are you? Whilst no commute may mean you have more time to get in a morning exercise, have you thought about your home office yet?

The Highs and Lows of Remote Working

Remote working has perks, there’s no doubt about it. More freedom, less commuting, and more control over your working day are just some of the benefits of remote working. Conversely, you might find that you concentrate less due to external stimulants, find it hard to get motivated, or don’t have the right equipment to do the job properly.

While some of these issues are unavoidable, others are entirely manageable, especially when it comes to setting up a work-from-home environment and replicates what you’re used to in the office.

Why We All Need a Suitable Working Space

You may have a desk and chair, you may even have a few plants to really make your home office feel special. But if your working space isn’t set up properly, overall your work could suffer. While most organisations now have found ways to make remote working work for their employees, many still forget the importance of tidy, appropriate working space.

Most offices in corporate buildings are filled with ergonomic chairs, standing desks and all manner of health and safety appropriate equipment. What’s more, they employ cleaners to ensure your desk remains dust-free. Not that you’d want a messy desk when surrounded by colleagues. Unfortunately, none of this typically applies in your home office. Meaning it’s up to you to create a home office where you can work as efficiently as any established office. Here’s how it’s done.

A Desk That’s More Than A Surface

Desks are essential to any remote worker. Whether you’re replying to emails all day, stuck in endless zoom meetings or creating content, you need somewhere for your monitor or laptop to sit.

One of the more exciting trends to grow during the pandemic is standing or adjustable desks. Many find that sitting is bad for their posture and some just think better standing. There are numerous health benefits that come with standing up to work, leading many to make the permanent switch. If you’re not yet convinced, height-adjustable desks get the best of both worlds, allowing you to rest those weary feet if the day’s dragging on.

Desks like the Comhar All-in-One Standing Desk has four programmable height presets. Allowing you and anyone else you’d like to share the desk with to find the perfect positions to work in, with the touch of a button. Not only that, but it comes with a storage draw, meaning you don’t need to crouch all the way down to grab a pen.

Or, if you’re looking for something a little less technical, the Crank-adjustable standing desk uses a crank to make as many height adjustments as you desire. All whilst getting a little workout for your arms too. A fully adjustable standing desk, that doesn’t break the bank.

A Seat Fit For You

We spend most of our lives in the workplace. Each job has different requirements. Some careers are incredibly active, requiring workers to be on their feet all day. Other workers are confined to cubicles or small offices, and some even spend most of their time commuting from place to place. Whatever your work circumstances are, it’s important you have the right ergonomic furniture, and specifically, the right kind of chair.

With the average office worker spending 75% of their life sitting down, an ergonomically designed chair is an absolute must.

When it comes to finding the right chair, none of us can go wrong with the Flexi-Chair Oka Office Chair. A chair that proudly shows the world that office chairs don’t need to be boring. In addition to its alluring orange breathable mesh exterior, this chair offers everything you need in ergonomics. Adjustable seat height and lumbar support, are just the tip of the iceberg with this chair. All FlexiSpot office chairs are made with Soft High-density sponge, have good elasticity and are difficult to deform.
