Always stay in constant contact with the office. Though you are working from home, your co-workers should never feel as if you are far away. Consider having your office phone calls forwarded to your home number – but make sure that you have an appropriate voicemail message. Set up reliable remote software so that you can easily interact with your work computer from home. Nothing will sour your colleagues to your new work schedule faster than having to do extra work because you’re not there.
