Work, Train and Stay Active in Your Home Office

Since mid-March, many employees of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena have been working from their home office. In the coming weeks, work will continue to be done preferably from home in order to continue to contain the corona virus. This situation poses particular challenges for all of us at various levels: How do you structure your daily work routine? How can you fulfil your leadership role well in this situation? How much and what kind of communication is useful? How can you organise active breaks?

The Human Resources Development department has put together a range of offers around these and other topics to support employees and managers in their home office. The team advises, for example, on questions of work organization, team leadership, ergonomic design of the workplace or the compatibility of home office and family. In addition, a series of online events are available as part of the in-house training programme, which can also be attended from home.

The complete offer of the Human Resources Development department can be found here.

Healthy and fit – while working from home

Health comes first – a little exercise at work can't hurt, whether you're at home or in the office.

The University Sports department therefore offers the "PausenExpress" for all employees, which now takes place digitally via the video conferencing service Zoom. Participants can look forward to an individual, varied short programme of relaxation, mobilisation and exercise, without having to change their clothes. The "PausenExpress" not only serves to improve general well-being and reduce tension. At the end of the 15-minute session, it provides a positive body feeling, the head is free again and you will return to work with new energy.

With the "PausenExpress digital4all", qualified trainers are available several times a week at fixed times on Zoom and bring more verve, movement and relaxation into your own four walls or the office. Registration is possible online. Thanks to the support of AOK PLUS, the partner of the university health promotion, the offer is currently free of charge.

Despite many restrictive measures, the University Sports department has again provided a wide range of sporting activities this semester. In addition to digital units, which take place via Instagram, a restricted analogue course programme will also start on 2 June. This is now online, booking starts on Thursday, 28 May at 10 am.

A large part of the courses will be held outdoors, as the infection prevention rules can be better implemented this way. Further information is available here.
