Optimizing home office

We share four-time management techniques. Working from home has excellent opportunities for both productivity and distraction. We give you some ideas to avoid falling into the trap.

Home office

To optimize your time at home, we advise you to follow these tips.

1. Start with a to-do list

Your to-do list can set the tone of your entire day. Try creating a manageable to-do list the night before, and follow it throughout the day. Include everything from a big project to a creating your grocery list on your lunch break and include how long you think each task will take. Check the items off or cross them out when you’re finished.

2. Stop multi-tasking

You may think multitasking saves you time, but your brain takes at least 15 minutes to refocus whenever you switch tasks. As you multitask on two or more things, your mind has to shift focus continuously, and it can hurt your productivity. Try focusing on one task at a time and switch focus only when you finish. You’ll be less distracted, and you may even complete tasks quicker than if you tried to do them all at once.

3. Stay away from personal tasks

This is one of the biggest downfalls of working at home. It may seem quick to wash a couple of dishes, but then you’re also putting in a load of laundry, paying bills and taking out the dog. You wouldn’t do those things in an office, so you need to treat working from home the same way.

4. Don’t surf the web

4. Don’t surf the web
Many jobs today require using the internet, sometimes during your entire shift. However, the internet can also turn into a black hole. Surfing the web can lead to large amounts of wasted time — not to mention if you start scrolling through social media. Turn your phone off, so you’re not tempted to check it during the day, and take breaks from your computer if you feel tempted to check on the news or the weather.

If you manage to put into practice any of these tips you will see how your work improves remarkably. Do you dare to try it?

Here are some of the key benefits of using an EOR while hiring workers overseas.

Employer of record

If you do decide to work with an EOR, you can count on your service provider to take care of all the formal employment tasks and liabilities on your behalf.

Companies that want to keep employing their internationally remote people fully compliantly have two options – one is to establish an entity and register as an employer in the jurisdiction where the person lives or alternatively use the services of an Employer of Record (EOR).

It includes:

  • Fully compliant
  • End-to-end payroll processing: tax deductions, salary processing, time & attendance, maintaining payment records and among others
  • Employment benefits and its administration
  • Risk management: eradicating risks and liabilities by taking care of tax filings, local & global compliance and beyond
  • Employment contracts: creating, maintaining, and terminating
  • Employee onboarding: a hassle-free onboarding of new hires or relocating existing staff
  • HR support: providing actionable advice on terminations and legal proceedings
  • Immigration assistance: visa and immigration requests, though visa approval cannot be guaranteed
And not only that, it also:
  • Removes the need to set up local incorporation – save substantial resources for your business
  • Accelerate time to market – faster than traditional local entity establishment
  • Empower you to hire remote workers anywhere in the world
  • Brings you a stress-free way to build remote teams
    Eradicates risks when dealing with unfamiliar labor and tax laws
  • Ensure compliance for both the employer and employees, in every country where you want to employ someone.

Five work/life balance tips

Five work/life balance tips

Knowing how to keep a balance and staying mentally and physically healthy is important, and you can achieve it by implementing a few tips

Work life balance

Working from home is a double-edged sword, it has many benefits but it implies a lot of discipline. Here some ideas.

1. Track your projects

You won’t be rushing around trying to find the latest status or putting project reports together at the last minute if you know how to track your projects.

Having systems in place that keep you organized goes a long way toward supporting your work/life balance. Work takes longer when it isn’t structured. The more structure, processes, and organization you build into your time on the job, the easier it will be to walk away at the end of the day and enjoy your ‘life’ time.

Use the right project management tools to get the job done and you’ll save a lot of time.

2. Learn from your mistakes

Making the same errors at work time after time is a waste of energy. Schedule time for “lessons learned” meetings and document what comes out of them, then learn. Don’t make those mistakes again.

Take some time to implement what you’ve discovered and tweak your project to take advantage of that knowledge. Improve your processes and how you do what you do, and you’ll probably find that you have more time in the day for the good stuff.

3. Go home on time

Make an effort to “leave” on time, even if you work from home. Get up from your desk or project, walk away, and close the door behind you.

4. Learn how to deal with stress

Everyone has different approaches to dealing with their personal stressors. It’s up to you to identify the best coping strategies for you.

This might mean taking a proper lunch break, going for a walk, exercising, or spending time with your pets. When you know what your go-to de-stressing activities are, you can plan to do them whenever your work/life balance begins to feel a bit out of kilter.

5. Build gaps into your day

Don’t schedule project meetings back to back. Build in a little gap between each meeting. This gives you a chance to catch up mentally, and perhaps to slow down a little as well.

4 considerations to take into account before making a decision.

Remote Job

Changing jobs is not an easy decision. Here are 4 key things to consider before deciding.

1. Money

Compensation is often more than just a base salary. Is there a cash bonus or commissions? While your base salary is generally fixed, a bonus and commissions aren’t guaranteed and may vary from year to year. Will you be paid for overtime? Does the company offer stock compensation?

2. Benefits

Many employers provide a workplace savings plan match program, profit sharing, tuition reimbursement, life insurance, flexible spending accounts, health insurance, disability insurance, and paid time off. Assistance with student loan debt is increasingly being offered as a workplace perk as well.

3. The cost of leaving a job

Leaving your current job may also cost you, so to speak. You may lose what your employer contributed to you. Some people do still have a defined benefit plan or pension at work. Making the decision to leave a job with access to a defined benefit plan comes with a unique set of considerations. After employees reach a certain age, pensions make regular payments for life. The size of the payment depends on salary and length of service. It can be a valuable benefit and may not be easily replaceable.

4. Type of job: remote or presential?

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. If you must relocate, you may have to pay for moving costs, real estate agent fees, or temporary housing. Some companies cover these costs for new employees, but not all do. For many people working from home is easier and makes you earn more money.

Work abroad

Finding a job in a foreign country may seem like an overwhelming task. Here some tips:

1. Use social media to inform associates you’re looking for work overseas. Take advantage of social media websites to look for positions. In addition, use social media to promote yourself. Create a LinkedIn account. Establish a professional profile on Facebook and Twitter. By using social media, you’ll expand your reach

2. Establish and strengthen connections you have in the country. The more people you have in your network, the higher the chances that you’ll find a position in the country and industry you want to work in.
Attend conferences and join trade associations in the country you want to work in.
Spend extra time socializing at conferences and other meetings. You may meet someone who can help you get a job.
Reconnect with old associates (by phone, email, or by meeting for lunch or coffee) who may have connections in the country you want to work in.

3. Search the job sites of multinational companies. Depending on your career and skill set, you may be able to find a job by looking at the job openings on the employment pages of large multinational corporations.
Focus on companies in industries that you have the skills to work in.

4. Look on international job search websites. Set aside some time and look through job postings on international job websites. International job sites will have more postings outside your home country than other websites. Consider websites like:
jobs.goabroad.com
OverseasJobs.com
searchjobsabroad.com

5. Learn about the culture of specific companies you want to work for. Before submitting your resume or interviewing, do some research on the company itself. Visit the company’s website and read news articles about the company. By doing this, you’ll gain more of an idea of the type of candidate the company is looking for, and you will be better able to market yourself to the person in charge of hiring.
