A Leeds-based start-up aims to help business optimise their ‘new normal’ with the launch of a new service providing optimised working-from-home solutions.
Founded in the wake of lockdown, Homework is targeting a growing market of businesses which have come to appreciate the benefits of remote working but understand the need to make it ergonomically suitable for the long-term productivity and well-being of staff.
Working in collaboration with a wide-ranging network of designers and manufacturers, Homework provides IT and ergonomic equipment along with furniture tailored to each individual and their home to create a home-based working environment designed for 100% productivity.
“Numerous organisations have embraced the potential that remote working offers in terms of lower operational costs, reduced environmental impact, improved staff well-being and increased productivity,” said a Homework spokesperson.
“However, many employees had to hastily improvise their working arrangements in lockdown, often leading to sub-standard set-ups at home which are ill-suited to their needs and likely to impact productivity and physical health in the longer term.”
They added: “If remote working is set up correctly, the rewards can be enormously valuable – a better work-life balance for employees, more competitive talent attraction for employers and huge savings for businesses, all at no loss to productivity.”
