“Hi Frank. How are you working at home? ‘’
‘’Hi Jurgen. At Jabra I am already used to working from home. That equates to about 50% of my working week, so 2 to 2.5 days a week. I have also set up a home office with a good office chair, 2 monitors, adjustable desk, etc. In short, it is very similar to the workplace in the office, where I only spend 10% of my time. “
“Don’t you miss contact with colleagues?”
“No, that is alright, because I call with a lot of colleagues. In addition, I often visit our partners with my colleagues. At the moment I keep in touch by making a lot of video calls with colleagues, which makes the contact a bit more pleasant. “
‘’Clear. Have you had to switch over the last period, or did you manage since you are quite experienced when it comes to working from home?’’
‘’Considering a child of almost 1.5 years and the closing of the childcare facilities, it’s really switching. My partner and I share the care for the little one and that requires the necessary flexibility in dividing our work”.
“How do you make sure you’re not just working and looking after?
‘’It took us a while to find a good schedule, but we’ve found it by now. That already provides a bit more rest and space to have some free time and relax. ‘’
In addition to Frank’s own experiences, I am also curious about the experiences towards the company perspective. It will probably be busy times for the supplier of headsets.
