Have you or your coworkers started working from home yet?
Depending on your role, this may or may not be possible. For many, it's at least possible to work from home part of the time.
For those that do need to start working from home right now, a little preparation goes a long way. Here are two ways you can prepare to work from home.
1. Make a list
What are your responsibilities? What needs to be done?
Getting all your thoughts together into one list gives you a great place to start.
It helps to separate your list into categories! What tasks can you already get done from home? What tasks cannot currently be done remotely?
Then, decide what you need to help you get things done at home. Is it technology? Access to your work network files?
Get everything down on paper and then tackle them one at a time.
2. Get ahead of it!
As we have recently learned, things can change rapidly!
This experience has certainly been a learning process so far for manufacturing. What the industry as a whole has learned is that you need to be adaptable and prepared for anything in today's world!
Manufacturing Global reported, "Surveying over 700,000 employees worldwide, 52,240 of those were from the manufacturing and industrial engineering sector. The survey highlighted that 53% of those within the industry have no home working experience."
That number is changing quickly, and Industry 4.0 technology is helping that process.
How could technology help you to be prepared and work from home?
