Robert L. McKenna: Remote Work and You
Robert L. McKenna III, a lawyer specializing in liability defense, has found that a hybrid work environment can provide far more benefits, both to the company and to the employees, than there are downsides.
His law firm, Kjar, McKenna, & Stockalper, had already been making the move towards a hybrid office even before the COVID pandemic began.
This allowed the firm to reap the benefits a lot quicker than others that were scrambling to get the model set up as COVID restrictions came down.
So what are some things Robert McKenna has learned from this new model?
Flexibility Can Decrease Overhead and Increase Profits
While dependent on the individual worker, for some, remote work can increase productivity and give the employee the job satisfaction they need to stay in the game for a long career.
And by having a contingent of your employees work remotely, you reduce the equipment and supplies that you would otherwise have to purchase and run off your own grid.
It also helps your employee save money by avoiding long commutes that would otherwise leave them disgruntled throughout the day.
Specific, Healthy Habits
One of the major problems that come with working remotely is separating your day-to-day tasks.
Because of this, it might be a good idea to set up a specific room or space as your working area.
This helps you get into the right state of mind to get your work done right and on time.
It’s also important to maintain healthy habits during the day, so you should take breaks from sitting in a chair and stretch often.
Another helpful thing to do is to plan out your day.
While it can be tempting to just wing it, actually planning out what you’re going to do when you’ll take your lunch break, or any other tasks you might need to do can help you stay focused throughout the day.
