Performing multiple work modes

Our work modes at home will fluctuate during the day as we perform multiple roles. At home we are the office manager, human resources support, chef, cleaner, interior designer, operations manager, well-being consultant and more all at once.

What elements should we focus on for self-guidance and where can we find help to navigate this? Through our Dayshift research, we divided our findings into two main categories:

a. Things that a person does to build their home office.

b. Things that a person does to transition their cognitive abilities.

Work as training is a day shift. It’s about becoming our best self in our work, and it involves deliberate preparation and practice.

Design in context: What’s our sense of professional identity when working from home and who are we as a worker?
