#70: #FBF – If you want to WFH…

November 02, 2018

A flexible work schedule and the option of working from home can do wonders for your productivity and personal happiness. That being said, your home is fraught with potential distractions (Vanderpump Rules, the urge to do laundry, your adorable puppy, etc.).

So how can you prove to your company that you will be an effective remote employee? We sit down with our CEO for 15 minutes each week, every week to get practical business advice so we can advance in our careers. In this episode, we learn how to work from home…

Key Takeaways

  • Not everyone is a good candidate for working from home. Some people are better in the office than they are at home
  • If you’re easily distracted, set up a space where you can focus and there isn’t a lot of noise (dogs barking, TV blaring, etc.)
  • When you’re on a video call, make sure to be aware of your appearance (wear a nice shirt, comb your hair, etc.)
  • Double check the background of your video call. White backgrounds work well
  • Be aware that your boss can see if you’re active on the company messenger platform
  • When you work remotely, you need to put in extra effort to maintain contact
  • Make sure you have a good microphone and internet connection
  • If you’re petitioning to WFH, focus on the effectiveness of the work, and not how it’s going to benefit you personally. You are in charge of designing a plan that works
