In the home office, without the right support, some challenges lurk that you have to face both as an employee and as an employer. In some cases, it doesn't matter whether you're just getting into the home office way of working or have been working this way for a while. The following challenges are particularly difficult when working at home:

  • No clear separation of rooms If you are used to coming to the office regularly to do your work, you often don't have a separate office at home. However, a clear separation of work and leisure time is difficult to achieve, and it is hard on the energy reserves. After all, how can you switch off if you're constantly looking at your work?

  • Childcare In addition, as the past has shown, schools, day care centres and kindergartens may of course be closed. The question then arises as to how to reconcile child / youth care and work so that neither one nor the other is neglected. This is a major challenge that pushes many employees to their limits.

  • Question of trust When employees are in the home office, the employer must be able to rely on its employees to actually perform their tasks. Regular monitoring calls or e-mails only demotivate employees and give them the feeling that they are not trusted. This, of course, is not conducive to productivity and may even lead to increased turnover in the long run.

  • Technical requirements To enable employees to perform their duties conscientiously at home, it is necessary to be able to always communicate easily with colleagues and customers and to retrieve all necessary data. For this reason, the right basic technical requirements are essential.


We support you: With the right implementation, home office enables highly efficient work, so that employers, employees and also the customers are satisfied. When implemented correctly, home office even offers significant advantages:

  • Cost savings for the company, as a smaller amount of office space needs to be provided: Rent, electricity and utility costs are significantly reduced.

  • Time and cost savings for employees, by eliminating the need for daily commuting

  • Free choice of residence based on personal preferences

  • The ability to eliminate the need for a car and its associated costs

  • Better work-life balance

  • Flexibility in terms of childcare

  • Time options for recreational activities such as sports

These are just a few of the benefits you can expect if you succeed in making the switch to home office, even in the long term, with our support.


To give you a first impression of how you can make the home office highly effective with our support, here is a small taste of the multitude of tips we have for you and your employees:

  • Structuring the daily work routine The fact that you are not constantly under observation in the home office has advantages in terms of childcare and household chores. However, this newfound freedom also sometimes makes it difficult to find the motivation to stay focused. So, plan your working hours, set clear daily goals and keep a to-do list.

  • Create workstation To work efficiently in home office, you need a workspace that allows concentrated work. In some cases, a separate office is not available, then it's a matter of improvising. It is important to find a fixed place, even if it is "just" a corner of the dining table, where you can spread out your work. If possible, you should avoid constant assembly and disassembly. In addition, good lighting is important, even in the form of a table lamp if necessary.

  • Stay healthy Dangers to health also lurk in the home office, such as a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet. Make sure you get daily exercise, for example by taking a walk, and stick to solid meals and a balanced diet also in the home office.
