Why WFH Is The New Way Of Working During The COVID-19 Crisis
While the nation has officially entered Phase 2 to resume business operations and reopen the economy slowly – not every single business will be able to return to normalcy just yet. For certain, essential services are to continue with operations as they did even during the Circuit Breaker period. However, certain work and businesses will still have to continue working remotely until further notice from the government.
As such, we will still be seeing many working from the comfort of their home until then. However, the WFH (Work-from-Home) brings about many benefits even if it means not physically interacting with colleagues or customers. Even though there are those who can’t wait to return to the workplace – remote working will have to do for now.
Now, let’s look into the various reasons why WFH is the best way of working amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the virus is more likely to spread with more interaction and socialisation with others – the optimal solution would be to limit or minimise contact with others. Hence, which is why remote working or WFH will ensure that would be the case. After all, it is the best way to slow down the spread of the virus and eventually come across the scenario of a few or even zero cases.
Likewise, Work+Store highly prioritises across all our self-storages and workspaces; as such, we ensure all spaces are under 24-hours camera surveillance and also accessibility for freedom to use the space whenever you wish to. The same freedom also applies to the decision to upgrade or downsize when the time is right for your business to expand or cut on costs. Our highly flexible and enticing lease terms allow tenants to rent for the short term and even switch out their contract to other types of services or products within our own establishment or even our parent company, LHN Group, where you’ll discover numerous alternatives like vending machine spots, pop-up shop location rental, and so on.
Travelling to and fro can be exhausting and cost a considerable amount of money for travelling expenses each month. Especially if you live far away from your workplace, it can become more of a hassle and take a toll on you with all the long durations of travelling. As such, WFH comes into the picture perfectly by improving work-life balance since there is no need to constantly travel or pay for taking public transport or refilling fuel.
Similarly, in the near future when a business resumes operations – it’s even more advantageous for a business to attain an office for rent near MRT; not just convenience-wise for employees and customers but also to gain better business presence. We have the cheapest self-storages and workspaces with a range from 6 sqft up till 730 sqft for storage units and 88 sqft onwards for workspaces. For our various workspaces, you’ll also find standard facilities like air conditioning, lighting, and a powerpoint. Moreover, you can select from our 10 locations available across the island, from 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Pasir Panjang, Tampines, Ang Mo Kio, Upper Thomson, Bartley, Kallang, Bukit Merah, and Aljunied. You can look towards our Aljunied location, in particular, as Work+Store is offering a rent-free offer for the first 2 months so you can save up more. To add on, the building is just a 2-minutes walk away from Aljunied MRT station and 6 minutes-walk from SingPost. Talk to our staff for more details about our promotion. Terms and conditions apply.
It may not be the same for everyone – but some employers have mentioned that working from home has not compromised the productivity levels of employees. In some cases, the efficiency of employees has improved on working from home, because they are able to balance their work and life better. Thus, the WFH concept can prove to be beneficial for companies as well from a monetary perspective as well as for employee efficiency.
Besides acquiring a low rent office space to limit your expenses, a workspace which can function as an ancillary office will help in productivity as well. Such a workspace will be able to manage multiple activities in one space, for instance, manufacturing or industrial tasks. At Work+Store, we don’t just provide the cheapest self storages and workspaces, but we also help in easing the goods acquisition process, boosting efficiency in goods acquisition, and elevating customer satisfaction by bringing work and storage space together.
From lowering the chances of contracting the virus for an employee to maintaining work productivity and efficiency – WFH is an excellent way of working, especially with the appearance of a crisis.
With the launch of Phase 2 – we will see more businesses reopen in order to help the economy return to its original state. However, the same doesn’t apply to all, and it may still be a case of remote working for your business. Meanwhile, Work+Store, as we did during the Circuit Breaker period, will still be operating as usual so tenants who have rented our self storages or workspaces initially may still use these spaces. However, we would like everyone’s cooperation in complying with the measures and rules in place by the government so we can all keep ourselves safe and healthy to our best ability. As a nation, we will slowly be able to get past this pandemic if everyone does their own part.
