Look for our sign on the South side of Route 36) Working from home is a growing trend, with 3.3 million people telecommuting at least half the time, according to the 2012 American Community Survey conducted by Global Workplace Analytics. The cost savings for not having to commute, being able to work in the comfort of your own home and having fewer distractions are all benefits to setting up a home office. If you're working from home full-time, or just one day a week, having your home office designed for increased efficiency is important. Here are some, tips for layout and design so you can enjoy spending time at the office - while at home. * Make it a comfortable space - A comfy work chair, space to pace if you like to walk while chatting on the phone, a clear desk space dedicated to work- related materials ... all of these elements are important for designing an efficient home office. Just be careful you Seat Belt Use Continued From Page 5 cent rate was established, a re- port published by the National Highway Safety Administra- tion (NHTSA) earlier this year showed that Illinois had the sev- enth highest safety belt usages rate of all states in 2014. Ac- cording to NHTSA, safety belt use in front seats can reduce the risk of motor vehicle fatalities by 45 to 60 percent.

For example, a bean bag instead of a chair doesn't provide a professional ambiance, and that can reduce your productivity. * Install good lighting - You can put a home office anywhere in the house, including the basement or garage if these areas are temperature-controlled. To help ensure that it's an enjoyable space in which to work, install quality lighting. Even if you have a window, you'll need good quality lighting on cloudy days so you can boost your mood, energy and productivity. * Have efficient technology - The company office will likely have copy machines to sort, print, staple and even email documents for you. When you work from home, you need a printer that provides you with quick, quality prints, preferably without having to spend a lot of money.
