Remote Work is quickly becoming the new norm. That means your home office needs to be just as productive as the corporate office. With the right tools, you can create a comfortable, healthy and productive workspace... with a shorter commute.

The Active Home Office

Just as you incorporate movement into the corporate office, you need to stay active in your home office. Use a standing desk in your home office to keep you moving.

  • Begin by standing for 15 minutes, followed by 45 minutes of sitting
  • Gradually increase the time standing. Alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day, but don't sit or stand for more than 60 minutes at a time
  • Add to your activity with a short walk or stretching session

Maintain a Healthy Personal Workspace

It's important to keep your home office clean especially during flu outbreaks. Use a HEPA air purifier to consistently and effectively clean the air of viruses, germs, bacteria and other airborne pollutants.

  • Choose your air purifier based on the square footage of your home office for the best results
  • Look for one with an added carbon filter for odors
  • For added germ protection look for products with the Microban logo. They provide continuous antimicrobial defense against bacteria for products such as mouse pads and wrist supports.

Configure for Comfort

Your monitor position matters. Help prevent neck and eye strain by selecting a monitor stand to maintain a monitor height that fits your personal comfort or choose a monitor arm for more flexibility in screen positioning.

  • Set the top of the monitor frame at eyebrow level
  • The monitor should be about an arm's length away, or approximately 20" to 35" away
  • If using a dual monitor arm, the monitors should be next to each other and angled in a slight outward "V" shape. This positioning helps prevent eye strain and neck strain.

Remote Work with Sensitive Documents

The risks of identity theft remain even when you work remotely. If you're managing confidential documents from your home office, be sure to follow your company's document destruction policy using secure cross cut paper shredders.

  • For higher security upgrade to microcut paper shredders
  • With kids at home, choose a home paper shredder with safety features
  • Choose a quiet paper shredder for working in your home office at night

Back Supports

Reduce back strain with added support and comfort.

Working all day in an office chair may eventually lead to back pain. Use back supports to help maintain healthy posture and reduce pain while you work at your desk. Many types of back supports are available.

Privacy You Can Trust

With mobile devices being used more in public, privacy protection has become an increasingly important issue. "Shoulder surfing" as it has become labeled, is a growing form of identity theft in which private on-screen information is either viewed or photographed over the shoulders of anyone using a mobile device. Whether you use a smartphone, laptop or tablet, you can protect your privacy in public with PrivaScreen™ Filters. PrivaScreen™ Filters blackout the screen image when viewed from 30° side angles to prevent prying eyes from reading your screen. Yet on-screen data is clearly visible from a straight-on view, allowing you to work worry-free, even on the go.
