Working from home? Tips and impressions from the TOPSIM Team

Due to the precautionary measures relating to the spread of the coronavirus, our TOPSIM team has been working from home. In this article we give a few tips on how the home office can also work for you and show impressions of our employees!

Here are three tips for working from home:

  • Set up a real office at home. Getting up and immediately picking up your laptop while working on the sofa is not a good idea. If possible, try finding a permanent workplace for you, ideally a quiet place with some privacy. In this way, you can separate work from private life better and also focus on the actual work – not on the series that run on TV.
  • Maintain your routine. Since the trip to work is no longer necessary, it is difficult to get used to everyday work at home. Get up at the same time as usual and stick to your routine. Very important: take a normal lunch break and also stick to your schedule! Unless otherwise agreed with the supervisor, you do not have to be available after your normal working hours.
  • Get rid of the distractions. Vacuuming or writing the grocery list should be avoided. Separate work and leisure time consistently, so you work more disciplined and use your working time efficiently!
