addressing your challenges
Collaboration is the key to a successful partnership.
Home working is now a valued and much utilised option as employees search for more flexibility and a better work/life balance. Making sure your teams have access to the same equipment and technology in the office is easy. Replicating this in a home environment, while no less important, is less so.
We are passionate about working with clients to make sure that their teams are productive, efficient, inspired, and comfortable, no matter where they are working.
There are often some common threads that come up when clients talk to us about challenges they face. Here are five of them.
Employees do not have the necessary IT connectivity and equipment.
Individual team assessments in their homes will identify what equipment is required as well as any IT upgrades.
Making sure staff do not feel isolated.
Our in-house IT and Technology solutions can provide all the necessary team collaboration tools and video to ensure people feel connected
Ensuring home networks are secure and not vulnerable to attacks.
Our in-house IT experts will ensure that all the necessary and appropriate anti-virus software is installed as part of our Home Worker Package.
Making sure all home set-ups are display screen equipment (DSE) compliant.
We employ highly qualified DSE Assessors and offer either in-person assessments, video assessments at home or online assessments.

How important are ergonomics in a home office workspace?
Ergonomics are important in any workspace, but even more so in a home office workspace. The correct ergonomics can help to reduce fatigue, improve productivity, and prevent long-term health issues. This can be achieved through the correct placement of the desk, chair, monitor, and other tools.
What kind of furniture is best for a home office workspace?
Furniture that is comfortable, adjustable and supportive is best. A comfortable office chair with adjustable height and arms is essential. A desk with enough space to accommodate a computer and any necessary paperwork is also important.
What is important when making sure people can focus in a home workspace?
Removing distractions, setting achievable goals, and taking regular breaks throughout the day can all improve focus. It is also important to establish a routine and stick to it.
What are some tips for staying healthy while working in a home office workspace?
Taking regular breaks, getting up and stretching regularly, drinking plenty of water, and eating healthy snacks. It is also important to make sure the workspace is ergonomically correct to avoid any long-term health issues.
What are some tips for staying productive in a home office workspace?
Staying productive in a home office workspace can be achieved by setting achievable goals, breaking down tasks into smaller chunks, and taking regular breaks throughout the day. It is also important to eliminate any potential distractions and to create an area that is comfortable and organised.
What is the best light for a home office workspace?
Natural lighting is best for a home office workspace. Natural lighting is not only energy efficient, but it also helps to reduce eye strain and improve productivity. If natural lighting is not available, high-quality artificial lighting should be used, such as adjustable desk lamps.
What can be done to create comfortable home workspaces?
Adding personal touches such as photographs or art, plants, and even playing some background music can all help. It is also important to make sure the workspace is clean and organized, as this can improve productivity.
What should employees do is they feel overwhelmed while working at home?
If people find themselves feeling overwhelmed while working in their home office workspace, it is important to take a break and step away for a few minutes. Taking a short walk, listening to music, or doing some stretching can help to clear your head and relieve stress.
What are some tips for setting boundaries between work and home life?
Setting boundaries between work and home life can be achieved by creating a designated workspace, setting work hours, and taking breaks throughout the day to relax and unwind. It is also important to set boundaries with family and friends, and make sure to take time to do activities that are enjoyable.
