From the Home Office: Amber Elliott, Director of Client Services at ContactEase
ContactEase has been a fully remote company for nearly twenty years. We know that you’re being inundated with tips on working from home (and we agree with a lot of them), but we also know that working from home can be a challenge under the best of circumstances. As many ContactEase firms are temporarily transitioning to a work from home environment, we wanted to share our own experiences with you. In this post, we’re talking to Amber Elliott, Director of Client Services at ContactEase!
Q: How long have you been working from home?
I’ve been working from home for almost nine years. I’ve been home schooling a 4th grader for the past two weeks and it’s a whole new ball game now.
Q: What is your favorite thing about working from home?
It’s a toss-up between the dress code and the commute.
Q: What is your least favorite thing about working from home?
My least favorite part of working from home has always been the absence of face-to-face interaction with other adults. As it turns out, that has served as great training for what we are all being asked to do now!
Q: Do you have a funny story or anecdote about working from home?
Oh, I have lots of them…some that probably shouldn’t be shared with a wide audience, but one I’ll never forget is a couple years ago when I had a new puppy (I thought was asleep) and a sick kiddo at home. We were all in my office when all of a sudden I saw sparks fly and heard a loud pop. Turns out that puppy wasn’t actually asleep under my desk and nearly set my office on fire! Definitely filed that one under the “things you never thought you’d have to text your boss.” Thank goodness nobody was hurt and it makes for a good story now.
