Positive societal impact, decreased commute time, and employee satisfaction are a few of the benefits companies and remote workers are feeling as the work from home trend continues. An IBM survey conducted in April 2020 found that 75% of 25,000 adults polled would like the option to work from home occasionally and 54% would like to work from home primarily. But alongside the clear benefits, there are common WFH challenges, like decreased employee productivity and fatigue. Setting up a high-quality work environment at home is key to setting remote workers up for success.

3 Tips for setting up a WFH space that works for you

Pick a space that can preferably be closed off from distractions, has good natural light, and that can be dedicated to just work.

2. Make sure it’s comfortable.
