Setting Up Your Home Office

Overview

You can’t beat a nice work-from-home day. Getting up that little bit later because you don’t have to make the morning commute. Working in your PJs, kicking back on the sofa, with your laptop on your knee, and sticking on a bit of daytime TV for background noise… Bliss. Doing this occasionally is fine. But, if you’re working from home regularly, you need a more permanent set-up, so you’re not putting your long-term health and well-being at risk, or falling shy of any compliance regulations.
