5 Important Ways To Prepare For Your Remote Working Job Role

by Josh Biggs in Tips on 30th March 2023

You must be thinking that you have hit the jackpot if you have landed a remote working job – and you’re probably right, especially when it comes to saving money on commuting to work and buying lunch. 

However, how can you properly prepare for your new remote working job role – particularly if this is your first role that you’re 100% working from home? 

This blog has you covered! Here are 5 of the most important ways that you can prepare for your remote working job:

  1. Ensure your internet connection is stable

Remote working relies on a good internet connection in order for you to stay connected with your colleagues and access work content that you might need for your job. As a result, before starting your remote working role, it’s a good idea to make sure that your internet connection remains stable and sufficient throughout your home. If you find that there are particular ‘dead zones’ within your home, it might be worth considering buying a Wi-Fi extender to improve the Wi-Fi connection, or simply avoiding that area during work hours.

  1. Create a morning routine

A recent State of Work 2023 report by Buffer discovered that 91% of respondents cited that they enjoyed working remotely, particularly due to flexibility. As you can see, remote working has positive impacts on the wellbeing of workers! In addition to this, to truly make the most out of your time working from home, don’t forget to create a morning routine that prepares you for the day. Just because you work from home doesn’t mean you should always be working from your bed! Set an alarm, eat breakfast, drink water, wash your face/shower etc.

  1. Invest in the right tech

You’ll need to make sure that your tech equipment is capable of carrying out your work tasks! Don’t be afraid to invest in a desktop monitor if you feel that a laptop screen is too small. The right headset can also help with preventing audio and microphone problems during virtual meetings. Only invest in items that you need and can afford, however. Whilst that tablet might be good for note-taking, you can always use pen and paper instead of breaking the bank. 

  1. Invest in the right furniture

The same concept can be applied to your home office furniture. A sturdy desk is a must-have for remote workers, as well as an ergonomic chair – trust us on the ergonomic chair! If you’re on a budget, acquiring office furniture in london can be a great way to complete your home office without compromising functionality and going over budget. 

  1. Meal prep your lunch

Although getting lunch is definitely easier at home than it might be in the office, you might sometimes only have a 30 minute lunch break, meaning that you can either cook something quickly or you can simply eat your lunch that you’ve already prepared for the day. To save time, we recommend meal prepping your lunch(es) either for just the day or the entire week! You can prepare it the night before so that you’re simply able to heat it up and eat it straight away.
