If the pandemic taught employers one thing, it was undoubtedly the importance of flexibility. For that reason, Maven Wave fosters a flexible work-life environment for all of our employees — no matter where they work.
With that in mind, we’ll be highlighting our colleagues and learning more about their workspaces in our latest series “Maven Spaces.” First up, we spoke with Sara Metz, Marketing Coordinator at Maven Wave, as she gives us a glimpse of her home office and told us a little about her routine.
What do you like most about working hybrid/remote?
I like the flexibility it gives my schedule. Also, if I’m having an off day or need to have some time to myself I can work from home with no worries!
What is the one essential thing you need to have at your desk while working?
Something essential for me at my desk while working is a good cup of coffee (hot or iced) with oat milk!
What kind of music do you listen to while working? Or podcast?
I usually listen to my indie folk/alternative playlists to focus when I’m working. My favorite artists to listen to at work are Lorde, Beach House, Tove Lo, Kali Uchis, and Glass Animals!
Do you have a work routine?
I have a very basic work routine. I usually have a coffee and a small breakfast, sit down at my desk or hop on the CTA to go to work, and grind with a few small breaks in between where I go on walks, get a drink, or draw something in my sketchbook to keep my creativity flowing!
Where do you feel like you stay the most focused: at home or in the office?
I feel much more focused at the office! I currently live in a studio apartment that I decorated to be very zen and calming, so it can be a little difficult for me to be productive in such a relaxed environment. Also, my team keeps me on track when I’m in person!
