Optimize Your Productivity Tools Setup

05 May 2020

Mr. Ng Tian Chong, SVP and MD, Greater Asia, HP Inc., shares three easy tips to ensure that we get the most out of your productivity tools while working from home.



Optimize your home set up with the right peripherals

Set up a dedicated workspace at home that mimics your work environment as closely as possible. A monitor, keyboard and mouse all help you stay productive and not hunched over a laptop. In addition, a headset keeps your voice clear in meetings without disturbing your family or roommates, and a wireless printer allows you to print essential documents easily, and often straight from your mobile.

Take extra precautions for endpoint security

With employees connected to their home or public Wi-Fi, the possibility of becoming susceptible to malicious cyberattacks, such as phishing, increases. Organizations need to ensure they are providing employees with secure devices and all employees need to do their part to update to the latest security firmware and use VPN.

Clean your devices

Cleaning surfaces, followed by disinfection, is a best practice for reducing any potential transmissions. All devices need to be turned off and unplugged before cleaning and you should do it with a microfiber cloth and a mixture of 70 per cent isopropyl alcohol and 30 per cent  water. Never spray liquids directly on your devices.
