Due to the sudden nature of the pandemic, remote work quickly became the reality for millions of workers everywhere, many of whom lacked an ideal home setup. In a recent Steelcase study, only 30% of participants reported they would describe their home workspace as comfortable. But as people continue to work from home longer than anyone anticipated, it’s looking like the home will continue to be a key place where work happens, at least some of the time and the need for a more comfortable and productive home environment has never been more important.
Whether it’s for yourself or a loved one, give a practical gift this year that any remote worker will appreciate, and create a home office that has the wellbeing of people in mind and helps them do their best work.
