A calm, quiet and safe space from which to work is a basic right for each and every one of our Weployees, but at the moment we’re having to create these spaces for ourselves, at home.
Unfortunately we don’t have Office Admin staff, cleaners or receptionists to help us recreate the same environments we’re used to in the workplace, and there are things we cannot always control when it comes to our home environments... but we aim to set everyone within our community up for success and keep them safe and feeling healthy whilst they are working. Here, we’d like to share some of the guidelines and best practise tips and tricks we use to help our Weployees recreate an office environment as best they can, to keep them healthy, motivated, focused and effective throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

But in order to ensure you come out of the current situation at your best - ready to go back to our ‘new normal’ these 8 simple steps are a perfect place to start.
