Congratulations!!! You have finally made the most difficult and the finest decision to work from home for Career
Placements. Trust me working from home for a HR and Manpower Consultancy company is an incredible experience. But that doesn't imply that
it's an easy job and it will only be fun as everyone thinks and as it appears. It involves a lot of self-induced discipline to be able
to successfully work from home. Since there are constant interferences and you can get involved in your daily house hold cores,
in such a case it can be hard to stay focused and productive.
Working from home will follow different patterns for everyone, so it is of prime importance to focus on understanding what works for one individual may not necessarily work for another person.
I am sure that with the help of these few points which mentioned below, one will have a clearer and a better grasp on the concept of working from home—and how to do it judiciously and productively.
Family Interference and Disturbance
One way to avoid the Family Interference is to introduce them to your work. Give them a brief about how a complete recruitment happens, the end to end HR and Manpower Consultancy process. Explain to them how important it is to work without disturbance so that they will understand and appreciate your work. At the same time explain the concept of Work from Home.
66 days to discipline
Researchers have concluded that a human being needs 66 days to develop a habbit. So you have to be very particular for the first 66 days to inculcate a new time table successfully. This hold true for your new placement and recruitment agency business too.
Hire House Help for Errands & emergencies
With young children at home, you will need to consider getting professional house helpers. If that is not possible it would be advisable to have another adult in the house from the family ideally grand parent or younger siblings, or you may consider dropping your children off at a daycare, or call a babysitter home to get a few peaceful undisturbed hours to your important work. This may appear to be a unplanned expense but the valuable time you get you will be able to close some shortlisting and interviewing.
Dedicate a corner for work no entry for family
It will nice that you dedicate a place to do your Recruitment and Placements work in one of your rooms. Here is where you keep your laptop or PC, phone and stationery. You must ensure that no other member of your family and friends use this corner and the equipment’s. You must develop a mindset to disconnect from your house and family once you are in this part of your house. Just like how you disconnect when you go to office. Set aside a specific place exclusively for work. Keep a fixed scheduled and work as if you are working from office and doing your HR and Manpower Consultancy work.
Deliver those hours per day
Make sure that you work for atleast 6- 8 hours for your Recruitment and Placements work. The plus point of working from home is that there is no one monitoring you, but that does not mean you take advantage of this situation. Since working from home is the best part is it is very flexible one has to ensure that the required no of official hours are put in dedicatedly by the entrepreneur. Please don’t waste your time watching television during working hours and be in a wrong impression that you can catch up with work on the weekends. Remember in recruitment everybody want people as of yesterday. If you follow this regularly for 66 days it will positively turn into a habit for the long run. Develop some self-restraint and keep the entertainment to after hours or the weekends.
Have a routine plan breaks follow it
You need to have a routine plan breaks and it is very important to have such breaks while doing your HR and Manpower Consultancy work. It can be tempting to stretch your day, but you will only benefit with your mental health and the quality of your work by fixing a time table just like you were going into the office.
Communicate and meet people daily
Go outside your home and find a client to interact with -- ordering your coffee, running an errand, whatever. It keeps you sane while doing your Recruitment and Placements work.
Set targets and meet them regularly
When you create your target, use the flexibility to your advantage. Schedule your meetings and try to exceed your own target for doing your HR and Manpower and Consultancy work.
Regularly make it a point to go out every day and meet colleagues and customers.
Fix up meetings at the local gym or club or a restaurant to discuss work, so you can get your work / workout / entertainment done at the same time. It’s important to have some social connection daily, even in the absence of coworkers, since you are working from home. Maintaining healthy social connections improves your overall well-being and helps you stay motivated. As discussed earlier your networking skills are very important for the success of a placement executive search consulting agency.
You must exercise and stay healthy
Drink a lot of juices every day and eat healthy food with a proper balance of carbohydrates, protiens, fibre and fats. and if you are not of those exercise types, just try to walk while you talk on the mobile. Walk while you Talk over to your Candidates and Client for Recruitment and Placements work. This gets oxygen into your blood circulation and keeps your muscles active, which can be the cure to that laziness you’ve been experiencing after looking at the same work day in, day out for months!
Reward Yourself Regularly
Go out to lunch. Whether you go by yourself or you meet a friend or family member out for lunch, make it a point to get out of the house for lunch once or twice a month. Taking a mid-day break from the HR and Manpower Consultancy work is a great way to treat yourself. Take a walk. The fresh air will rejuvenate you. Do yoga in the living room. It’s good for your body to move around during the day. Take a short break to watch your favorite TV show and sing to your most favorite song.
Don’t waste a single lunch
Breaks, like making and eating lunch, can de-stress you to work more efficiently. It is just not possible to be working 100% of the official hours while you're at home. One has to be productive also.
Develop the rolodex its length and depth
This placement and recruitment business is all about contacts. You must develop your contacts. Head Hunters are successful only if they have a good network. Focus on developing it for your job placement business.
Use Technology Skype Webinars go to meetings
Part of what enables us to work from home so much more often now is the array of apps and tools will help to remove distance as a hurdle between team members. Implementing and using the correct softwares to keep you and your team in touch is off prime important for productivity. Getting the right stack of support tools to fit your HR and Manpower Consultancy work makes a big difference.
Getting dressed for work makes the work from home office more like a real office, and it also expresses and prompts all visitors, especially you, that even though you are at your home reading, browsing the Web, or talking on the mobile, that you are actually at work.
Visit the office and attend special events
If you're part of a team, you should periodically meet your team members at work and attend company events even if you don't live near the office. At the same time you should also attend all the special events and exhibitions with regards to Recruitment and Placements in your own area.
