Working During a Pandemic

During pandemic ridden times, it can be hard to keep productivity up in a team. Everyone is in the comfort of their homes, and there is no interaction with each other. The good news is, that there are plenty of solutions to help combat the pandemic slump that everyone seems to be suffering.

There are two main categories of solutions; independent, or group. The independent solutions focus more on how you work at home, while the group solutions focus on how the team interacts and communicates. One of the strongest independent solutions is creating a separate workspace. Having the ability to separate yourself from your work zone can help bring your focus back to the task at hand. Having a physical separation from your work on “off hours” makes it easier to recharge for the coming tasks. For a group solution, it is very helpful to hold coffee meetings before the workday starts. Here everyone in the team can join and talk to keep the comfort and socialization levels. This also helps ensure team chemistry and integrate new members into the team. With these solutions at hand working during a pandemic can be way easier. There is no need to feel tied down by your work, and instead, it can be a peaceful process while you enjoy your time at home.
