Decentralised and hybrid forms of work becoming ever more important. The Coronavirus crisis fundamentally changed the way many employees organise their work within a very short period of time, and flexible workplace models will become part of the new normal in the world of work even after the pandemic is over. This guide supports employers and employees in designing home office workstations. It focuses on ergonomic, technical and organisational requirements.

The aim of the document is to illustrate different workstation situations in the home environment and to support the choice of work equipment with information and explanations on workstation design. It also addresses issues of IT security and accessibility of home office workstations.
