Work from Condo this 2021

    While some are fortunate enough to live with their families, making the new, remote work situation a lot easier to establish and deal with, a portion of the workforce lives independently in the Metro—largely in condominium units, all by their lonesome.

Fast Internet and Other Things You Need to Effectively WFH

     Here are some helpful tips you can do to maximize your full potential of working from the corners of your humble flat:

     1. Get Premium Fiber Internet.

   In a country like ours where millions of people share the rather limited bandwidth available from the various internet service providers, it is of utmost importance to get the fastest mode available—that is, through fiber-optic cables. That is the reason why fiber internet plans are faster compared with the usual DSL ones. It will enable you to work seamlessly, delivering on your job’s requirements in a timelier manner.

    CV News cites some specific advantages of having a fiber internet connection while working from home:

     • Weather occurrences are less likely to interrupt signals;

     • It is faster, which makes working more efficient;

     • You have more security from pilferage;

     • It has bandwidth symmetry, that is, upload and download uniformity; and,

     • It is more sustainable even for future technological advancements.

It also offers cable TV services, through Planet Cable, catering the home and office needs of Filipinos across the countrySubscribe now to enjoy better connectivity!

     2. Always Have Good Lighting.

     As you are bound to work for a couple of hours in front of your laptop or other smart gadgets, good lighting should always come first. This will lessen eye strain due to radiation from the screen of the gadget in front of you—which often leads to headaches, thus diminishing your productivity. If possible, make use of natural light that the daytime brings.

     3. Dedicate a Working Area.

    Working from home comes with some level of comfort—but, at the same time, also some distractions. It is important to keep your focus even as you work remotely. This could be done by having a particular “working area,” which as much as possible, has a table and chair where you can comfortably do your job.

     4. Maintain a Schedule Defined by Work-Life Balance.

    Since you somehow have the autonomy on your working hours, it is important to maintain a schedule that best fits the demands of your work. In order not to deviate as much as possible from your usual office routine, it is best to do the work on your usual business hours.  Before and after that, you can do your own stuff, and have time with your friends and family, just like before!

     5. Avoid the Unnecessary: Noises and Clutter.

    This new normal working arrangement is greatly characterized by lots of online meetings and conference calls. You would not want to get reprimanded for loud noises. Hence, if you have roommates, it is best to let them know in advance if you have upcoming schedule so that they can at least tone down their own activities during that time.

     All the more, your background will be visible during meetings that require having your computer’s video camera turned on. Do not get caught off guard. Always tidy up. Similarly, having a clean and good ambience lessens stress  and increases productivity.
