So how can remote employees reap the most benefits while avoiding the common downsides? Here are some tips:
- Set a designated workspace to mentally separate work and personal space
- Take breaks throughout the day to stretch, snack, chat with family etc.
- Overcommunicate with coworkers through chat, video calls etc.
- Seek out social interaction outside of work hours
- Set clear work hours and stick to them
- Don’t be afraid to speak up if you’re feeling isolated
