I placed the space heater underneath the desk

When a great portion of the international workforce started working from home at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wondered how long my job would last in this setting.

  • I figured that my managers would push us back into the offices the minute local governments allowed it, however something interesting happened.

Their employee productivity levels increased and we were all meeting higher quotas than ever before. I think that this wasn’t the case with every company though, as some people were inevitably distracted by working from within their own homes for the first time in their lives in many instances. I was used to working in my home because this is where I finished my last year of college and the place where I worked before I secured my new job position. I like that I can set the temperature inside my home to whatever most keeps me comfortable. I don’t have to worry about adjusting to whatever temperature the building is set to when I arrive at work in the morning like I did before. On top of that, I can put a space heater under the desk in my apartment office without getting in trouble from my managers because I’m not in a multi-use building at home. I live in a house, and I’m not close enough to any other homes to ever threaten others beyond myself when it comes to fire hazards. Still, that doesn’t mean you should be frivolous with space heaters just because your safety is the only one being threatened in that situation.
