Effective Work from Home

To whom:

For anyone who has to adapt to work from home by social distancing.


The new coronavirus COVID-19 has changed our daily lives.

News about economics come like from the battlefield Some companies significantly reduce the number of employees, others are completely suspended. There are no reasons to think that this will soon be resolved.

A week ago, we didn't know what “social distancing” meant. Today, public gatherings have been stopped and many are learning to work differently – from home. Employers tend not to fear, but people understand that even the existence of jobs can depend on how successful remote work will be.

However, “working from home” is not trivial. Many do not have a permanent working area at home, it is difficult for householders, especially the younger ones, to assume that Dad or Mom is “working right now”, while the surrounding impulses – phone, refrigerator or school children – at home are pulling back from the rhythm of work for much longer.

How to deal effectively with today's reality – remote work from home?

The answer to this is already more nuanced. What are the necessary elements for successful work at home? What are the most common hindrances? How to minimise the impact of the environment on the rhythm of work? How to keep productivity and energy level in the long run?

Answers to these questions we will search in webinar Effective Work from Home.
