With social distancing measures becoming a serious consideration for many employers in the UK. Workplaces across the nation are closing in an attempt to stave off the spreading of the Coronavirus. What may have been considered erring on the side of caution has fast become an isolating trend among the majority.
Those who have worked from home before have struggled with the usual problems; like kids getting under their feet. But what happens when your home doesn’t have the infrastructure required to handle the productivity of an average work day? COVID-19 has taken us all by surprise and blindsided us by such an eventuality, taking the office for granted.
Coworking may have been the hot topic of recent years but now is the time for small self-contained offices. Here at LibertySpace we are lucky to benefit from a modular building design. A feature which allows our community to go about their business safely, undisturbed and contained within their own work environment.
The old adage may be true “technology is great, when it works”…
Employees working from home will struggle if they don’t have the high data speed required for large file uploads, video conferencing, creative digital media etc. Another element to consider when weighing up the benefits of self-contained workspace. Opting for a more isolated environment with a robust technological setup can make all the difference to the agility of your business.
With a self-contained workspace, productivity may be better than ever! Many companies already favour distributed teams for this very reason. One way for companies to keep their employees happy during a time of workplace closures is to allow certain freedoms. Including including working from somewhere more comfortable, convenient and closer to home. This is especially important in times of uncertainty to allow relief in balancing work life while minimising stress by having family close-by.
