When working from home it's important to consider some of the following things: 

  • Will you have a quiet place for conducting meetings? Or the ability to have a quiet place if needed?
  • Do you have a place to conduct video calls? Consider using virtual backgrounds if needed. 
  • Make sure to have a supportive chair. 
  • Try to create a relaxing environment. Things to help or consider: 
    • Lighting 
    • Plants 
    • Pictures 
    • Music when not on calls 
    • Noise-canceling headphones 
  • Consider what you'd like for your desk/table height. 
  • If you are considering a standing desk of any sort, talk to your manager, they might be able to help. 
  • Do you have the right equipment (monitor, headset, webcam, etc.)? Contact your local IT support person for guidance.
