FOR STAFF: Winter is coming, get set up to work from home
If we are unlucky enough to encounter more heavy snow this year, one possible option (if your manager is agreeable) is to work from home.Â Remote desktop allows you to connect from your home PC to your office PC and access all of the software and tools that you are accustomed to using at work from the warmth of your living room.
A bit of forward planning is required though – you will need to set up your work PC to receive a remote desktop connection and also do a bit of setup on your home PC.Â The setup of the work PC requires you to be logged on at work, so can’t be undertaken when you are already snowed in.
Take a few moments now to set yourself up and save yourself a bit of hassle if/when the weather turns..
