Stay Productive in the Time of Social Distancing

COVID-19 struck fast when the whole world was unprepared for it. Life has taken a sudden turn, and people are working from home to maintain social distancing. Social distancing has become a new normal in our world. Many of us are spending a lot more time at our homes, either from enforced lockdown situation or practicing social distancing.

As we are working from home, it is essential to stay healthy. But doing so does not have to be boring! There are many ways to maximize productivity and enjoy the time you are spending at home.

.

Here I am talking about a few ideas you can use to stay productive while maintaining social distancing:


1. Video Meetings:


In the current situation, you should maintain effective communication no matter where you are. This needs to get more creative by harnessing the power of video conferencing with friends and colleagues. Technology has proven itself in this challenging time, bringing people together virtually without the danger of spreading the virus. Sending invitation for team meetings through Zoom or Hangouts will help you to stay productive.


2. Establish Healthy Habits:


We should take care of both our mental and physical health during this time. Maintaining a positive attitude and stick to a routine will help you a lot. When working from home on a routine, you should act as if you are still heading out for a typical day. This will keep you organized and also channel your creativity. Scheduling routine is an excellent tool for keeping you organized and productive. Social distancing and self-quarantine can be isolating and lonely. To avoid this, start a text chat, or spend some quality time with the family.


3. Advancement of Technology:


The most significant advantage of humanity nowadays is technology. With the help of technology in the modern workplace, we can collaborate in real-time with colleagues and clients from all over the world. HR professionals are also adapting these techniques in their work and that too quickly. The main concern of HR professionals at this time is hiring. Choosing a perfect tool such as resume parser will help recruiters to extract the data from resumes/jobs data into their ATS/CRM quickly. Recruiters can easily set up an automated extraction process in three easy steps. This will allow you to save your time from data entry. With the easy availability of this tool online, recruiters can automate their resume data extraction process and save time on data entry.


Staying focused during quarantine and social distancing can be quite tricky. But I believe we can do it! Be safe and stay in touch with your family and friends. Maintain a healthy physical and mental routine, which will help you to be more productive, and it will get you through this rough patch.
