CHANTILLY, Va. – March 03, 2016– According to a study by Teleworks, one in five Americans reportedly work from home at least part time, and the numbers keep growing. Companies are finding that workplace flexibility enables employees to work more efficiently and effectively, according to their individualized needs. This shift in more home-based employees also means consumers are needing to create at-home office spaces in spare areas or rooms in their homes.
Yet home-based work environments can become crowded, disorganized, and ultimately cause a stressful workspace, if not properly designed and set up. That’s why furniture manufacturer BDI designs small and home office furniture that creates productive and feature-rich workspaces, which ultimately reduces the stress of working from home.
Since most telecommuters report working at least 35 hours a week in a home office space, one of the most important criteria for creating a productive environment is organization, and making sure your space is functional. The most efficient workspace keeps confidential documents secure while also providing convenient access to all supplies and paperwork. Having an optimized office space gives workers the freedom to work at their own pace and simultaneously keep distractions at bay.
