3 Tips to Create a Bulletproof Remote Work Setup

In today’s world, many people are finding at least part of their work tasks to be remote or they are actively looking for remote work.

Either way, there are strategies you can use to help you lay the groundwork for remote work in order to increase productivity:

1. Have WiFi Access

For some of you, this is just a simple task to cross off your “Best Practices for Remote Learning” checklist, but having excellent WiFi isn’t always a certainty, particularly for digital nomads.

Not every area of the world has amazing WiFi speeds so it’s important to check your speed wherever you are working.

2. Have a Backup WiFi Option

One of the easiest ways to fail is having a single internet option. If your connection goes out for any reason, you can get in big trouble with your contracts, and possibly have some terminated.

Even if you work or learn from home with your fancy ultra-high-speed WiFi, don’t think you won’t ever find yourself in a bad situation. All sorts of unexpected things happen all the time. It’s such a simple fix to make sure your cell phone can be used as a wireless access point.

It’s also a good idea to make sure you know where to find a café or other working space if your internet goes down. And, of course, make sure you’re using the correct type of internet.

3. Invest In Some Good Equipment

Setting yourself up with adequate equipment from the start is one of the most important remote work best practices you can follow.

Remote work equipment will differ widely from person to person. Depending on the nature of your profession, “equipment” might also involve software.

After considering the laptop or desktop you need, the start-up expenses for the fundamental elements of remote equipment are usually relatively modest.

When you are working at home, you should invest in the following equipment:

  • Noise-canceling headphones
  • Laptop cooler
  • Ergonomic mouse and mousepad
  • Ergonomic chair

The right equipment will not only ensure that you can get your work done in a timely manner but it will also reduce the risk of injury while sitting at your computer and working from home!
