Trust makes working from home productive and comfortable.

Your home office can be anywhere you like: in the shed, at your kitchen table or in the attic. The main thing is that you are able to work properly. You will need to make sure that your keyboard types just as well at home as it does at work, that your mouse is comfortable to hold, or that you have a good view of your screen. Trust’s products enable you to make the most of your home office. Read about some of our products here.

 


How to make the most of your home office 

 

Setting up a workstation at home might seem simple: install your computer and you’re done. But if you want to make the most of your home office, make sure that you have the right accessories and that your office is a pleasant place in which to work. It is therefore important to consider the following:

 

  1. Is there sufficient light? This helps your productivity. Too much or too little light will affect things such as your appetite, your mood and how alert you are.
  1. Adjust your desk to the correct height. The correct height for you is proportional to your body height. For example, if you are 185 cm tall, your desktop must be at a height of 76 cm, and if you are 190 cm tall, your desktop must be at 78 cm.
  1. Don’t underestimate how a good headset makes video calls easier. It is easier to talk to colleagues when everyone is able to hear each other properly.
  1. Set your screen at eye level and make sure that the screen is at a distance of around 50 to 70 centimetres away from your eyes.
  1. Obtain an ergonomic chair and adjust it so that your lower and upper leg are at a 90-degree angle to each other when your feet are touching the ground.
  1. Make sure that you have the correct accessories you need: a good keyboard, a simple mouse. That’s how to make the most of your home office.

Mouse and keyboard

As the mouse and keyboard are the hardest working accessories that see the longest of hours, you might as well choose for comfort. Allowing your hand and arm to rest in a natural position, an ergonomic design will prevent pain and strain. Every tiny mouse movement and key press adds up; using the right mouse and keyboard will make a huge difference at the end of the day. You can also opt for a silent mouse and keyboard design if those around you are easily distracted by your clicking and typing sounds.

Work in a structured manner such as by creating a to-do list: act as though you’re in the office, even if you’re at home.

Multi-port hub

Don’t let wires tangle up your home desk. Organise your wiring by plugging all accessories into one USB hub. With a range of USB hubs that cover all sorts of connections, you can attach old and new accessories alike; from HDMI cables to microphones and SD cards. Regain control and maintain order from your laptop or PC.

Make time for relaxation every now and then, as you would when taking short breaks in the office. Take that time.

Headphones

Get into focus mode with the right headphones. A quality pair of headphones with crystal clear audio and soft cushioning adds comfort to your conference calls. Whether you’re connecting with colleagues, or listening to your music while typing, let the background fade and tune into the present moment with a good pair of headphones.

Avoid distractions. Don’t put your workstation somewhere where you will be looking out of the window all the time. Arrange your workstation in such a way that you are able to shut yourself off from distractions. 

Webcams

Keep in touch with colleagues (and friends and family). With a webcam you’ll be face to face when it matters most. Made for use with all video conferencing programs, offering high-resolution video and crystal clear sound, you can connect instantly and discuss business comfortably.

Enjoy working from home. Phone one of your colleagues to talk about something other than work. And don’t forget to talk to the neighbours.
