As the Coronavirus craziness ensued and our employees here at INX Software were asked to work from home (WFH) to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of everyone and mitigate ourselves from the potential spread, new challenges, as well as opportunities, came with the new territory – our studies and make-shift home offices at the dining table.
We look forward to slowly transition our teams and departments back into the office at our Perth headquarters, at the Canadian branch and continue to support our employees who always work remotely in Queensland and Calgary.
Hear from some of our employees about their WFH experiences, what their pros and cons are, and what learnings they’re going to take with them for the future.
Let’s hear from Lisa, Account Director.
1. Have you found it easy to adjust to working from home (WFH)?
I did. I found that once I recreated my setting at home it was business as usual.
2. Where have you set up your designated work station?
I set myself up upstairs in our open area which worked well as I was out of the way of the family except for the access to the XBOX for my son.
3. Have you stuck to your daily morning routine before work, or has it changed?
Mine did change. I enjoyed not being rushed in the morning to get ready and out the door. It allowed me to have breakfast with my son which was a treat. I would then take a walk in the evening with my family which got me away from my desk for the day.
4. Have you found you are more productive WFH?
In some ways yes as you could just get on with what you needed to without interruptions but for a large part interaction with the team is required and this resulted in simple tasks taking a little longer.
5. What is something that you miss from being in the office?
Being able to walk across to someone and ask them a question and collaborating together.
6. Now that we look forward to slowly integrate back into an office work routine, what is something that you’ve learned from WFH that you’d like to take with you for the future?
Making sure we have boundaries. It is important to step away from work and reconnect with your family and take part in an extra curriculum activity such as gym, walking or running and that we do not need to be available 24/7 for our jobs.
