Home Office Happiness

Where my Homies at??!!! My work from Homies that is. We can help! What a great way to start the week, having a client share pics of their new home office provided and installed by Interscape Commercial Environments. When Bryon Kamay of the Knights of Columbus contacted us for a new home office, we were anxious to assist.  Since Covid hit, Mr. Kamay has worked nearly 100% remotely.  As he puts it, “I have been bouncing around the house, attempting to work in every nook and cranny there is, all while dodging two distant learning boys and a wife with a home photography business. I spend most of the day on audio and video calls with colleagues and partners around the country in space not conducive to doing so.

Whether you are a remote employee or working from home temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic, here are a few essentials to stay comfortable and productive and keeping the importance of ergonomics in mind! Sitting all day is not beneficial for your physical and mental well-being whether you are working from home or in the office. Working from your couch or in bed may seem convenient or more comfortable but in the long run, it puts you in the wrong mental state and will negatively impact productivity.
