Tech essentials on a work trip

Tech essentials on a work trip

With 50% of the workforce expected to be working remotely by 2020, it’s more important than ever to ensure you have everything in place to maintain a high-level standard of work while out of the office. What’s more, with more companies exporting good and services abroad than ever before and staff being asked to go on work trips, it’s vital to have all the necessary tech essentials in place.

So, what do you need?

Laptop or tablet

It goes without saying, but if you want to remain productive and connected to the office a shared hotel computer or internet café just isn’t going to cut it! A laptop or tablet is essential. What’s more, you can use your mobile data to connect to the internet no matter where you are, whether its at the airport, coffee shop or your hotel room.

Phone and camera

It’s another obvious one but having phone with a good camera or a phone with a separate camera is essential. Not only does it allow you to stay connected, but you can document your travels and engage with people back in the office through social media too.

Power

It’s alright having all these technologically advanced items at your disposal, but have you thought about how you’ll keep everything charged up? The last thing you want is for your battery to go flat just as your about to close that sale or when you have a client call scheduled. That’s why it’s important to not just keep your power cables with you, but to also keep a fully charged power bank with you as back up – for when there’s no plug sockets available. You could even get a company branded one, like these from USBMakers.com >

Secure VPN

If you’re out and about, you’ll need internet access, but public wi-fi isn’t always safe. That’s why we recommend using the Secure VPN app to ensure you’re hidden, and all your information is encrypted.

Encrypted USBs

It’s been reported that over 20 million USBs are lost or stolen each year! This could be seen as a data breach and if sensitive information has been leaked it may leave your company or employer open to heft fines. To stay protected, use encrypted USBs for storing, transferring and transporting data.

There are various other hardware items and apps that you can use while on your work trip, including GSuite and Slack to collaborate and remain up to date with projects, along with various translation and transport apps. If you have the essentials in place you can remain productive no matter where you go.

How I stay healthy while traveling

How I stay healthy while traveling

When you travel long-term, it can be difficult to stay healthy. I’m not someone who was blessed with a particularly great immune system anyway, and I tend to pick up anything that’s going around. Combine that with long flights, time-zone changes, and the need to […]

What’s your desk story?

What’s your desk story?

Furniture at Work has a super interesting campaign right now, which I thought you guys would love. The campaign is called #MyDeskStory, and I feel like it’s super appropriate considering how many of us are beginning to work remotely, freelance, and start our own online businesses.

So today, I thought I’d share a few things about my workspace. You probably already know that I’m based in Budapest, and I have the cutest apartment in the middle of the city (right by the Octagon). One of the things I love about it is the location, but because my money goes so much further here, I can enjoy having my own apartment to myself, and I even have a cute little office.

The design of my apartment is a little weird. The kitchen and living room are open-plan, and there’s a weird staircase that’s almost like a ladder which goes right over the side of the kitchen. Once you go up the ladder, you’re forced to bend over slightly or you’ll bump your head (the ceiling is a bit too low). But here, you’ll find my desk and a super comfy office chair. On my desk, I have a laptop stand and a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. This allows me to work with better posture since I’m terrible at keeping my back straight otherwise.

I also have a few knickknacks from my travels around the world. These include some beautiful photographs I picked up in Thailand, some Lonely Planet travel books (to keep me motivated and remind me why I’m traveling), and some souvenirs.

While I try to keep my desk relatively clear, I inevitably have some snacks up there as well. These often include candy or chocolate, as I have a terrible sweet tooth- particularly when 3 pm strikes and I’m on a deadline.

If you’re currently designing your office, be sure to look into office furniture at Furniture at Work. Next, you’ll need to decide how much room you can devote to your office, and what you’d like to include on your desk. One of my biggest tips would be to make sure you have a comfortable, easily adjustable chair so that your arms will be at the right height for typing.

Finally, I would pick three things that you’d like to have on your desk and are happy to look at every day. These could be pictures of your family, souvenirs from travel, or even a simple organizer that makes you feel like you’ve got your life together.
