Meet the new normal – working from home
For most individuals, home or remote working used to be a luxury. The general expectation from the corporate world was that employees work in the office, not in their home. A multitude of reasons why this was so – greater employee accountability, monitoring of work, trust, safety… the list goes on.
How things have changed
The pandemic has forced so many companies to reimage how and where employees work – which for most, is at home. So, the question is, could organizations benefit from the at home worker and could an employee be connected and productive in their own residence? The answer is a resounding, “yes”. Optimal performance is achieved when one is able to create a supportive environment for their work.
Here’s the issue… many of us don’t have an optimal or selected space or haven’t thought through what a “supportive environment” really means. Differentiating your work zone from a personal zone, balancing home activity while work is happening, and defining a designated, focused work time are all considerations when designing the highest-performance environment.
If we just focus on space, it may be the one most important element that will impact one’s productivity. So often, the couch or sitting at a kitchen table become our make-shift office. These types of products were never designed to support long bouts of work nor does it help us psychologically to get into the mindset of shifting our brain from “home to work”. That said, every home cannot afford the luxury of having a separate space like an extra bedroom, a library to create a specialized home office space. Many times, we have to optimize our personal area and create that space ourselves. How can you achieve a designated home office space with the right products if you don’t have the real estate to support this?

Being able to have a versatile product like the ECLIPSE where you can choose where and how you work – however large or small of a footprint that may be – does allow the user to both mentally and physically transition from “home to office” more easily.
