Working from home amid Covid-19 outbreak: How to avoid distractions, putting in longer hours than usual

Mr Cosgrove said that employees should establish a familiar routine at home similar to the one at work to stay focused.

“Having the same rhythm and routine at home is critical,” he said. “This helps (employees) deliver the same value on time.”

He added that working the same office hours would also help employees to separate their work and home.

“While working from home, you might work 11 hours instead of the usual eight to nine hours,” he said. “So when you get up in the morning, you should start at your normal time such as 9am and knock off at 6pm or whatever your usual time is.”

Another way of keeping to the same routine is by taking the same lunch or coffee breaks and avoiding activities one would not normally do at the office such as watching television, he said.
