These days, the roofing on your Harlson County home may also be the roof above your Atlanta area office. Alpha Roofing Company is deemed an essential business, but not all of our employees work up on a roof. Even we have folks working from home, helping to keep themselves and the community safe.
In addition to roofing contractors, we have people to handle things like the bookkeeping, scheduling and ordering. Like many of you, they’ve had to adjust to working from home. We know there’s a lot more to it than finding a place to set up your computer and plug it in!
Home Office 101
The Muse offered up some helpful tips for anyone who suddenly finds themselves working from home. As they point out, it’s not just about productivity. “These tips,” they say, “will help you make sure that you’re successful, both at getting your work done and at maintaining your mental well-being.”
Some of our favorite tips include:
- Maintain a Separation Between Personal and Professional. A good way to do that, they say, is to set up a designated workspace or home office. “One of the big challenges when it comes to working remotely is keeping your work and home lives separate,” The Muse says. “If you never fully disconnect from work, your work productivity will suffer and your home life can take a hit as well.”
- Get Dressed. It may sound like fun to work in your pajamas, but for most people getting dressed will help put you in the right frame of mind. “You don’t need to dress as formally as you might for work, but the simple act of changing clothes serves as a signal that it’s time to wake up and get things done,” The Muse says. Besides, if you spend all day in your pajamas, you won’t be able to look forward to the magic part of the day when you shed your work clothes and get ready to relax.
We hope your find these tips useful. If there’s anything else we can do to help you, we want you to know that all of us at Alpha Roofing and Construction of Atlanta are here for you. We’re all in this together! Stay safe.
