4 TIPS TO HELP MAKE HOME WORKING A SUCCESS
1. A designated workspace
It's much easier for your personal life to creep in when you work from home. From household chores to family and pets, there will be many things that vie for your attention. This is why it is important to have a designated workspace, one that is comfortable, allows you to focus and a place you can leave at the end of the day.
2. The right technology
Having the right technology at home will ensure you are on the right path to being your most effective whilst working from home. It's worth investing in the technology that helps ensure business as usual, no matter where you decide to work from. Having uninterrupted access to communication tools such as conferencing and chat through to business analytics and file sharing is a must for workers.

3. A structured approach to your day
Plan out your day so that you do not lose sight of deadlines that you have to meet. Working from home can break your usual routine, having a schedule will help you stay motivated and productive throughout the day.
4. Regular contact with your colleagues
Working from home for sustained periods can bring feelings of isolation and it's easy to lose touch with colleagues. Use chat and conferencing tools to keep them in the loop, find out how joint projects are progressing and simply have a chat to talk about non-work related subjects. Communication can be the key to improve productivity and isolation.
