Were you just asked to come back into the office? That’s a common trend occurring more frequently as Covid-19 restrictions lessen. More companies are booting up the computers and flicking the lights back on at business offices. Below are some tips to help transition from working remote back to in-person:
- Stay Organized: Make a schedule to stay on track of both time and responsibilities, this can include setting an alarm to get ready on time, calculating commute time, coffee stop and most importantly any meetings and work needing to be done for the day.
- Schedule meetings with your manager: Daily or weekly check-ins are a great way to not only communicate with your manager on any questions or concerns but also an opportunity to hear any feedback or idea’s they may have for you.
- Build connections: You’re no longer alone at home, you have peers in the office you can get coffee or lunch with. Get to know other’s around you, it not only makes the day go by faster when you have people you get along with but also improves your mental health.
- Distractions: Many offices have varieties of distractions internally and externally. Find ways to help block those out and stay on track to complete your work. For example, put your phone on silent mode or bring in headphones.
- Work-Life balance: Don’t let work be your life. Off the clock try to fill your schedule with hobbies, interests, and most of all be sure to get proper rest. This benefits your mental health and provides a good day-to-day balance.
