DEOS Strategic Partners, do you know that according to the recent UOB ASEAN Consumer Sentiment Study, 92% employees in Indonesia felt they needed to put in longer hours to avoid losing their jobs. Are you one of them?

The fear of losing a job is definitely not the healthiest drive for work, because instead of being productive, it can destroy our mental health and at the end, also our productivity. So, if you want your productivity to stand out amid the WFH season, check out the tips below:

1. Communicate Better
According to the latest Cigna COVID-19 Global Impact Study, 64% of employees surveyed globally have revealed better communication with their co-workers since working from home, and have become closer to them as well. Check out your communication style after WFH, is it getting better? You should intensify it professionally to maintain trust & teamwork!

2. Upgrade Yourself
Perhaps you always cancel the plan to study further or take that business course you always wanted due to the lack of time or the distance is too far away? Now, it’s the best time to upgrade your skill and knowledge, without having to leave the house! Seize the opportunity - if not now, when?

3. Innovative Initiatives
While everyone is frantically adapting to remote working style, juggling between responsibilities at home & work, they will really appreciate your creative ideas to make their days easier. Offer your help, be it automation of tasks via Zapier or a quick online stretching session to release your colleagues’ tense body.

Let’s focus on our vision & the solutions instead of on fear and we shall overcome this uncertain times together.
