Remote Working :  10 Things KPC International value

Over the course of the year many companies have adapted to a position where their staff are working from home including KPC International. Here at KPC International we have developed a remote working charter highlighting 10 tips that KPC International value when it comes to remote working.

  1. Have a routineHaving a morning and evening routine that indicates you are starting or finishing work is a great way to connect and disconnect from work and home. For example, having your morning coffee to start work and finishing by going outside for a 30-minute walk.
  2. Take BreaksMake sure to take your lunch break and get outside for some fresh air or cook your favourite meal.
  3. Mind your Mental Health Take time to check in on your mental health. After work do something you enjoy such as reading a book or painting. KPC International also offers all its employee access to Employee Assistance Program which is free and confidential.
  4. Work environmentYou may not have the perfect workplace or equipment, but little things such as adjusting your chair or using a cushion to support your back makes working at home that bit easier.
