How to be a more productive teleworker
Monday - 5/9/2011, 5:38am EDT
Whether you're looking at increasing your telework hours or just getting started, Howard Owen, business editor of The Fredericksburg (Va.) Free Lance-Star, provides ten tips to help make teleworking as productive as possible, courtesy of DEGW, a "strategic business consultancy."
Those tips include:
- "Create a schedule. Determine start and stop times and make sure to create breaks. Set your clock or computer so you are reminded when to get up and walk around-or shower!"
- "Determine the storage you need. Look at how many papers you reference in a typical week and provide shelves or drawers within 10 feet of your primary work space."
- "Lock it up. Provide the proper amount of security. Avoid locating expensive equipment in front of windows that are seen by everyone. Lock the door or the drawer when you aren't "at work." Minimize printing. Password protect your computer and make sure it blanks its screen."
Other tips include making sure the area you'll be working in can be controlled for heat and cooling, invest in surge protection, and get a good chair!
