June 24 is National Work From Home Day, a slightly strange thing to celebrate given the widespread transition to remote work out of necessity during the pandemic. Despite the sobering cause of this change, the transition to remote work has been welcomed by many. And while skipping the commute is great, working remotely comes with its own host of challenges. Because there’s no clock to punch, so to speak, it’s easier than ever to overwork yourself.
That is to say, burnout while working from home is just as real as it is in the office. That’s why GMC is kicking off June 24 and National Work From Home Day with their #workfromanywhere campaign. This week-long initiative (June 24-July 4) challenges everyone (whether they work from home or not) to mix up their surroundings and try working somewhere new. The idea is pretty simple:
“We invite those feeling burned out to change their scenery, get outdoors and away from the home office, and enjoy the option to work from anywhere when safe to do so—whether it’s a getaway to a scenic location, a trip to their local park, or even their own driveway,” said Phil Brook, vice president of GMC Marketing. “GMC’s premium lineup of trucks and SUVs is truly made to be used, offering bold design, authentic capability, and all the comfort and connectivity ideal for a remote-office setting in whatever location you want to work from—or just to relax and enjoy the world around you.”
To enable working from anywhere and encourage some recreational time in the outdoors, GMC is giving away a Sierra AT4 to one lucky winner as well as providing the first 20,210 eligible GMC customers (who register online) 30 days of complimentary in-vehicle internet service. You do need to be an existing GMC customer to get the free internet service, but anyone can get a chance to win the truck. Follow this link to get a chance to win.
To get you started with the #workfromanywhere campaign, GMC has put together the following list of ideas:
- Utilize the industry-first, six-way MultiPro Tailgate, which is available on the 2021 Sierra and Sierra HD, to turn the truck into a remote office-in-the-woods for a hybrid camping/work setup.
- Take a first-class ride to the park in the next-gen Yukon and utilize the available dual 12.6-inch screens in the second row as monitors, never missing a beat of productivity. When done, unload the bike and take a ride for a much-deserved mental health break.
- Head to the beach in the modernized Canyon and listen to the waves crash while finishing that last spreadsheet. With the available 13 tie-down points in the bed, there’s no chance gear will get loose before an afternoon surf.
- Head to the river in a Terrain, which offers a fold-flat front passenger seat and rear seats that can accommodate an 8-foot kayak. Set up office at river’s edge and enjoy the soothing sound of the water that awaits once the workday is complete.
- Take some work friends along for the remote-office ride in the Acadia and host meetings or brainstorms away from the computer. It’s an adventure that can be shared with the Acadia’s seating for up to seven passengers and room for their cargo.
** While working from home has become the new reality for many, GMC recognizes that there are some that cannot work from home. GMC thanks all frontline workers who have worked tirelessly for the benefit of the greater good. **
