For the last 5 years of our business, BOXFOX has proudly stood behind the idea of being there for someone even when you can’t physically be there. Now more than ever, our BOFOX Team is here to help you do just that for your employees, clients, or partners, near or far.
Whether it’s a custom care package filled with desktop essentials to make their WFH experience seamless, or if it’s a simple morale booster to kick-off their week, we’re serving up 5 ways you can be there for your employees, coworkers, or clients during a moment like this…
HELP THEM CREATE A SPACE
When you’re working from home for an extended period of time, it’s important to make sure you’ve got an appropriate workspace set up, both for your attention span, but also ergonomically. Whether it be your dining room table, a desk in your room, or your kitchen bar, it’s best to set up your work somewhere other than your couch or your bed, if possible. For the employees working remote from BOXFOX, we’ve encouraged our employees to send a morning slack photo of their workspace so everyone can feel connected, near or far. Sending photo inspiration around the company about different workspaces will most likely encourage employees to create their own work space, that’ll by nature, increase their efficiency.
SEND A CARE PACKAGE
BOXFOX is living proof at how to stay connected to the people that matter most to you, no matter where in the world they may be. Whether it’s a soothing face mask and bath salts for them to detox after a long day working from home, or desktop essentials to help them create the WFH desktop of their dreams, send some love their way with a custom care package, courtesy of our expert gifting team! If you’re sending a larger order, contact our concierge team who can help you get to gifting your employees the BOXFOX of their WFH dreams. Now more than ever, make them feel the love!
Just because you’re not in the office, doesn’t mean you’re not working! Make sure to maintain the communication, whether you’re leading a team or reporting to your boss. FaceTime, Slack, Zoom, and Skype are effective ways to maintain the communication-even if it’s a slack update once in the morning and once at the end of the day, it’s important to stay connected to your team!
ENCOURAGE MORALE BOOSTERS
A great way to stay not only connected to your team, but keep everyone in the right headspace is to encourage morale boosters. At BOXFOX, we’ve got a team channel dedicated to fun videos, photos, and information sharing to help boost everyone’s moods. If you see something that you think is interesting, funny, or will just make everyone’s minds at ease, it’s easy to create a space to share it with the team, and a great way to stay connected to those you might not talk to when you’re remote!
Just because you’re working from the comfort of your home, doesn’t mean you should forget to take breaks. Encourage your team to take a pause from their workspace, whether it’s making a coffee, taking a walk, or just simply getting up for a quick stretch, it’s important to step away from the craziness of work and take a moment to unplug, especially when you’re working from home.
Always remember this: parties, plans, events, and even work might be cancelled, but your relationships will never be.
