The new normal is a home office
One positive thing 2020 will be remembered for is workplace innovation. Out of necessity, people had to work from home and businesses had to adjust. Many businesses like retail were not able to use this new model but others were able to adjust. Now we are seeing that many corporate sectors are making working from home the new normal.
The advantages to businesses that expensive office costs are down such as utilities, cafeterias, gyms, and landscaping. Many employees are happier working from home when they don’t have to commute to an office or do business travel.
Employees get a lot of advantages when they are working from home. They get more sleep, more time at home with their families, less expenses such as gas, car maintenance, clothing, and dry cleaning. With Zoom, companies get the advantage to save by bringing employees together virtually rather than paying for travel.
Now that working from home is becoming the new normal, more people are trying to figure out how to stay in shape in this new model. I heard a story about an entertainment lawyer in LA who has started talking his calls while he walks 12 miles a day. While that is admirable, not all of us can do our work while walking around the neighborhood.
A more practical way to stay healthy while working from home is with a treadmill desk. You can work and exercise at the same time (and take notes). Check out our options for treadmills desks at www.homeofficewellness.com and prioritize your health in this new world we now live in.
