Lenovo, the global technology solutions provider, has collaborated with Featherlite – a leading furniture manufacturing organization, and MyPhyzio – a professional ergonomic consulting firm to build an effective ‘Work From Home’ guideline for efficient remote working experience titled WFH 101.
This initiative is aimed at educatingeveryone about maximizing productivity while working from home, and will focus on three aspects:
- Guiding consumers in setting up their dedicated workspace at home
- Advising them on the right products and technologies to enable maximum productivity
- Recommending best practices while working from home, to ensure healthy lifestyle, work-life balance, and avoid burnouts.
According to a recent global Lenovo study conducted specifically on the evolution of work during COVID – 19, 43% Indian professionals surveyed complained of back pains, while 38% complained of neck pains, and more. Along with physical ailments, workers across India have also identified healthy work-life balance as another top challenge while working from home. In fact, 70% feel it is more important to have separate devices (personal computers, phones, etc.) for work and their personal life.
These insights highlight the need for a proper WFH guidance to minimize discomfort, including ergonomically designed furniture, uninterrupted internet connectivity, large external monitor that adjusts to natural eye-level, appropriate headphones and other neatly arranged accessories.Maintaining right body posture, making time for lunch and coffee breaks, and following basic videoconferencing etiquette are also important for individuals working remotely.
