As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, health experts continue to encourage everyone to practice social distancing and to self-isolate. As a result, millions of people are now forced to work from home.
At Binance, working from home has always been an essential part of work culture, with 800+ team members in 50+ countries and regions. A decentralized approach to our company structure has always meant that Binance team members are able to work flexibly - flexible hours, flexible locations, with colleagues all over the world and across several different time zones - while still being productive and achieving results. Besides, we believe that the future of work and employment will be on-the-move, especially for industries that are entirely based on the Internet. And as our technology becomes more sophisticated, more businesses are freed up from relying on the traditional office setup and saving money from various expenses as a result.
Binance team members often adopt a nomadic lifestyle. Many of us migrate from city to city as the work requires and don’t have a permanent base. In some cases, there are just one or two Binance team members in an area. This setup has allowed Binance to expand at a rapid pace worldwide, but it also comes with its own set of unique challenges. For instance, a globally dispersed team means that meetings or tasks can happen at the most ungodly of hours. The writer of this article for instance, has participated in meetings and taken part in work tasks that start at midnight (and then slept in till late afternoon). But that just shows the amount of dedication that the Binance team has for our blockchain ecosystem.
So in these times when work-from-home is a hot topic, Binance team members are sharing our work hacks and principles that improve our performance and well-being regardless of where we are in the world, and especially during the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll share some of these with you, alongside personal anecdotes from some of our team.
1. Keep the order: Organize your tasks to know exactly what you need to do. With the extra time, some employees overload themselves with more work. Set your schedule with breaks and respect them as if you were in the office. Focus on productivity rather than hours spent working. There are many productivity apps on your phone’s app store. On your agenda, set weekly and daily priorities, use these apps to help you to remember them, and track your progress.
