Our colleagues also work from home!

Working from home, how do our colleagues do it? You can read the story of Sam, Recruitment Consultant at Trinamics here.

Working from home according to our colleague Sam

Last Tuesday it was announced that the measures regarding the corona virus will be extended until April 28. This means that we will continue to work from home for the time being. How do our colleagues deal with this? We asked our Recruitment Consultant Sam Hoogland from Nijmegen location!

How do you maintain a proper routine?
I enjoy working from home and keeping the routine is no problem. I get up at about the same time, have a cup of coffee and watch the breakfast news on TV. Then I just go ahead as I always do. I also plan lunch at about the same time as normal with my girlfriend who is also working at home. That makes it fun!

How do you stay in touch with your colleagues?
Of course we have various means to keep in touch with each other. The main means are the mail, telephone and whatsapp. We don't have standard telephone appointments, but the cooperation is normally very intensive, so it will continue like this for now. I speak to my colleagues several times a day.

How do you find the right balance between your work and private affairs/environment?
I find that I have enough discipline to just focus on my work when I am home and work time is running. As long as I'm sitting at the table with my laptop, it's just work and I'm not easily distracted.

What do you think is the biggest advantage of working from home?
Besides the fact that I have no travel time, I notice that working from home is also efficient and effective. Incidentally, travel time is never a problem for me, because I only live 10 minutes from the office. Luxury huh?! I have fewer distractions at home. Of course the phone still rings regularly, but in the workplace I am also distracted by other things. I don't worry about that now. It is also an advantage to be able to really get out of work for a while, for example by doing a household chore.
