Whether you're an old pro at working in unusual or remote locations or you're new to it, it can be useful to keep some good practices in mind to help be productive, secure and healthy.  With that in mind, we'll be sharing some tips from our own internal experts and from you, our Egnyte community members. 

Today's Work From Anywhere Tip: Communicate more than you normally would. 

At least at first. If you've been working remotely for a while, you've likely found your balance. But even with the advances of technology in content collaboration, telecommunication, real-time chat and more, it can be very easy to feel disconnected from your colleagues or "out of the loop." 

The best solution for this is to communicate often, and utilizing all of your company's tools. Depending on your work and the culture of your company, this could mean anything regular check-ins with a project team by phone to a group chat with your immediate team to share industry news and observations.

As shared by Egnyte Distinguished Engineer Kalpesh Patel, "Use video calls when possible and start your camera... chat is good, but the human body is wired to see and listen." (You can check out more of Kalpesh's hard-earned work-from-home wisdom here.)

What's the best tip you have for achieving success outside of the office? We'd love to hear about it in the comments or over on the Working From Anywhere discussion boards.
