Cube Code: If you’re sick…work from home

It’s that time again. Be it a sneeze behind a neighboring cube or someone blowing their nose on full blast, the sounds of the season make it clear that the flu’s ready to make itself seen, heard and felt.

And, with a minefield of germs waiting to infect us from the daily commute to the shared workspace, what’s a professional, hard working guy or gal to do when we get caught with a bug? Just stay home.

No matter how much hand scrubbing you do, the truth is that the influenza virus mostly spreads via droplets in the air, like from sneezes. Nobody wants to lose a day from work (well, not a lot of days), but your best bet is to begrudgingly work from home.

Here are some tips to make working from home as productive as possible while battling through stuffy heads and scratchy throats. Good luck!

Work with Clean Tech 

Think about what you come into contact with the most during your workday – keyboards, mice, any other office tools come to mind? The level of germs found on keyboards can sometimes be up to five times higher than that found on the toilet seat so it might be time to give that keyboard a good scrubbing. The Logitech Washable Keyboard K310 can be hand washed or fully submerged in up to eleven inches of water and features drainage holes at the back for drying. Move your office into your comfy, warm bed? When you’re sick, being able to rest and work at the same time makes the sick day go by faster. The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for iPad can be easily wiped cleaned of germs and the keyboard makes working from any horizontal location that much more doable.


Make A Clean Call In

Working from home doesn’t mean you have to miss important meetings. The Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e works with your phone, tablet or computer and turns any space into your own conference room.  An added bonus, the Logitech Mobile Speakerphone P710e has an integrated stand that allows you to position your mobile phone or tablet at just the right angle, so you can work hands-free and interact shake-free on all of your video calls.
