Working from home during a pandemic can be trying at best!
One of the biggest hurdles you may face while working at home during a pandemic is keeping a clear and open line of communication with your office, coworkers, and customers.
In a world where connectivity is everything and business professionals are expected to be available constantly, it becomes harder to separate your personal and business communications since you have turned to using your cell phone as your primary link for both. Unfortunately, this means you can never get away! Customers and business associates alike can call you at all hours of the day or night, any day of the week. This can easily lead to no “down time” for you. This can be stressful and can lead to health problems, family quarrels, and unnecessary angst. (I am speaking from experience.)
A person needs to be able to separate themselves from their work and “disconnect” to allow themselves to rejuvenate. A healthy work/life balance is essential to success. The problem is that when you combine your work and personal communications into one singular device you can no longer “disconnect” for a while. Sure, you can turn your phone off, but what if there is an urgent family matter and someone needs to contact you. What if your teenager has a flat tire and needs rescued? No, you cannot really “just turn your phone off.”
So, how do we facilitate communication in a manner that is quick, easy, affordable, and convenient for all involved and still allows for that “disconnect?”
Enter stage left: VoiceSpring Communications.
VoiceSpring has been on the forefront of remote communications for 15 years. With our VoIP (voice over internet protocol) systems, we can make any place that has a broadband connection your new/temporary office. You are no longer bound to that hidden box on the wall in the closet!
Over the last 15 years, VoiceSpring has been upgrading communications systems for businesses in Central Illinois and beyond. By utilizing VoIP we have enabled our customers to reinvent the way their employees and customers communicate. This has collectively saved them millions of dollars and improved the flow of communication in ways they never knew were possible!
What does this have to do with “turning off” and “disconnecting?”
With a VoiceSpring communications system, you no longer need to use your cell phone as your primary business communication device, even when working from home during a pandemic! Move your desk phone to your home or remote location and work like you are still in your office. Instead of giving your cell number to everyone, it is business as usual. When it is time to “leave” for the day, you can actually separate yourself from your office and allow yourself that time of relaxation. Your office calls are still going to the “office” phone, not your cell!
What’s the bottom line here?
With a VoiceSpring phone system, you can be as connected or disconnected as you need/want to be. You can send calls to your cell phone when you need to, use the desk phone for day to day business (regardless of where you are working from,) or “disconnect” yourself and have some down time for you at the end of the day. Your health depends on it!
