More and more of us work from home. It’s time to turn the home office into a peaceful, more productive place.
Some say the coronavirus pandemic has fundamentally changed how many of us will go to work.
About four percent of the U.S. workforce worked from home through 2019. In 2020, that number skyrocketed to more than 50 percent, a massive test of the work-from-home concept. Experts now say by the end of 2021 up to 30 percent of us will permanently telecommute.
The world has changed. Today there’s an increasing need to make the home a professional work environment. That frequently starts with household acoustics. Children, lawn mowers, pets, vehicles, appliances, and music can create a cacophony of noise that can interfere with video conferences, distract from tasks, and slow productivity.
