Why Our Personal Safe is a Must-Have When Working From Home

Why do you need a personal safe, to have your very own desk locker? Well, Coronavirus has changed every aspect of our normal working life and the routine that came with it, with many of us now finding ourselves working from home. Working from home is at times difficult for everyone, this has only been increased by the added pressures of homeschooling which many parents are facing. Of course, there are perks such as no commute, no-makeup, sweatpants and a home cooked lunch…but feeling stress and finding it difficult is also completely normal and understandable. 

Our Lockabox One, can help make working from home that little bit easier, let us tell you how…

Make a dedicated workplace with your own personal safe 

Creating a designated workspace when working from home can help increase productivity and concentration. If possible, find a quiet space and get everything you need for work organised in that space. A room where you can close a door is ideal as this can help you to not get distracted but also with work life balance which we will mention later! Finally, while it might be tempting to sit on the sofa, it’s much better to sit at a desk or table, read up on how best to set up your workspace to avoid strains and back ache. Within your workplace our desk locker can be used to store all the items you need for the day, keeping them neat, tidy and within one place, ensuring none of your essential items go walkabouts! With others in the house you really can’t trust your husband not to steal your favourite pen or your children to take that shiny new highlighter! Lock away your items and your worries in our Lockabox One. 

Keeping your work phone away from little ones 

Can you imagine walking in to find your child on the phone to an important client? Has this happened to you before? Our lockable personal safe box can help keep important items such as your work phone or USB away from children. The three digit combination lock acts as a deterrent and keeps curious hands away from your important equipment, ensuring an embarrassing phone call is avoided! It can also help you to step away from your work phone and not be tempted to check emails late at night or out of hours, creating a more positive home environment. 

Keeping confidential documents securely locked away 

Working from home means you no longer have the locked space many of us are used to in an office. This can be especially problematic if your work requires you to have confidential documents or equipment. Our desk locker is portable and can be moved to an office space that suits you, meaning all confidential items can be locked away, limiting the chance of them being seen by others within the home. This solution can help provide you with peace of mind and reassurance that you are taking the relevant steps to keep items confidential! (Please note: Laptops and A4 files unfolded will not fit within the Lockabox One.). 

Creating work life balance 

Working from home can present us with the difficulty of establishing work-life balance boundaries.Having a desk and all our work at home with unlimited access to our work laptop can often present a work overload and cause us to find it difficult to switch off. It’s easier to stay logged on when your home is your office, but this can lead to unhappiness and exhaustion both of which decrease productivity at work. It is important to log off at the end of the working day and enjoy some time to yourself, our personal safe allows you to put your office equipment into a locked box which mentally signifies that the working day is over. This can help establish boundaries and create happier work life balance. (Please note: Laptops and A4 files unfolded will not fit within the Lockabox One.).
