It’s been almost two years since many of us began working from home due to the pandemic. During that time, staff and faculty with remote and hybrid work schedules have created workspaces that help them thrive.

Courtney Mann, a clinical trials project leader with Duke Clinical Research Institute, said she appreciates the adjustable desk she bought. It allows her to work from both sitting or standing positions. 

“This arrangement allows me to set up my environment and my day in ways that allow me to be more productive,” Mann said.

Do you have something in your home workspace that you find especially helpful? It could be a window, a digital work tool, a headset or anything else that makes your physical space more comfortable or efficient. Share your story with us (include a photograph, too, if you have one), and we’ll be in touch to chat for an upcoming Working@Duke story.

We’re giving away a few “Proud to be Working@Duke” T-shirts, too, so don’t miss out!
