Tips for Keeping Your Home Office Quiet

September 8, 2014

A quiet place to work is essential when doing call center work from home with LiveOps. Having a quiet, comfortable place to work will help you focus better and prevent background noise during the calls, which is prohibited by the LiveOps independent contractor agreement.

Take a few minutes to sit quietly in your home office space. You may be surprised to find that you can hear a TV or radio, traffic noises, kids, the neighbor's dog, or other sounds. These background noises will not be tolerated by our clients so it is important to block them out.

Here are a few home office ideas that other agents have shared:

  • Choose a room where you can close the door and tell your family and friends that this is a time when you cannot be disturbed.
  • Put a note on your front door asking delivery people not to ring the bell.
  • Turn the ringer off on your cell phone and make sure your home phone cannot be heard by those on the other end of your land line.
  • If traffic noise is a problem, try thicker curtains or even blankets over the window.
  • Some agents find it helpful to run a quiet fan in the background.

Comfort matters too!

As an independent agent you will need to use your phone, headset, and computer for at least 30 minutes at a time. Making sure that your office set up is comfortable for you will make that time much more enjoyable.

"I could rave and rave about LiveOps! Working for them allows me to remain a stay at home mom in this economy. If it weren’t for this opportunity, I'd be away from my children somewhere, working in an office, and they would be at a sitter after school. Thank You LiveOps!"
