where possible. If you are an office worker, in tech, in Tele-calling or customer service or if your
entire work is on a computer, then sooner or later, your employer will move you to a WFH status.
For those used to working remotely, this is not new. But if you are dealing with the situation for the
the first time, here’s how to master it.
In the scenario of Safety First, The MangoIT has released some guidelines in favor of WHF.
1. Work area
Your first task is to create a workspace in your house that is conducive for WFH. Ideally, you will work
in a room by yourself behind a closed door. No roommates, no fridge, and no bed to tempt you away.
Invest in the right furniture to make it comfortable. A proper desk and ergonomic work chair are
better than a backache triggered by working on the sofa with your laptop. Keep your desk clean and
tidy. Make sure you have a wall or background that suits a Skype or video call with colleagues.
2. Get organized
Get your laptop, diary, pen, cell phone, and chargers in place. If you are in a noisy house, invest in a
noise cancellation headphones. Use a mouse for better efficiency. Figure out who will take care of the
children and keep them from disturbing you with schools closed. If your spouse is on WFH too, share
time slots and children related chores. Organize routines and rules for other disturbances like the
maid and doorbell.
3. Master technology
Learn to use the best technology available for a WFH. You can use Meet for a team video call and
Teams or similar tools for messaging. Project management tools like Asana help you achieve team
outcomes while a list app or a Trello can help organize your day. Speak to your IT department for any
help you need, including setting up a VPN is required.
