Here are four ways to maximize the benefits of remote work:
Set up a workspace
No matter the location, employees should be able to set up a place where they can easily access their necessary work materials. This can be difficult for workers who spend most of their time working remotely. In these cases, it’s essential to set up working consistencies. There might be particular objects that an employee always uses—a to-go mug, writing utensils, a lap desk, favorite headphones, etc.
Keeping details like this uniform when working remotely can simulate the feel of having a home office.
Find the right tools
After a physical space for working is set up, it must be equipped with the necessary tools, including a laptop and dependable internet connectivity.
While this can be a challenge when working away from the office, using LTE- enabled devices can provide consistent connectivity. Computers should be equipped with the software, programs, and apps that workers need to complete their jobs as efficiently as possible.
Capabilities like file-sharing and organization in a shareable cloud solution can help facilitate collaboration and efficiency.
Investing in collaboration software like Microsoft Teams, Stream, or Yammer can facilitate easier communication, file-sharing, and video chat for your teams of remote or flexible workers.
Finding the right tools is the first part of our 3-step strategy:
Work at any time
Stay connected. Investing in reliable connectivity ensures continuous productivity for remote workers. LTE-enabled devices such as the Microsoft Surface Pro or Surface Go ensure they have options for connectivity other than potentially unreliable home Internet connections.
Make time to collaborate
Working remotely can be lonely, but maintaining connectivity with other team members can help keep that onsite social feel. Take the time to schedule meetings with coworkers using collaboration software, video chat with management, research fun things to do locally when traveling for work, and reach out to colleagues via email or social media.
Staying connected and active is vital to maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
