How To Keep Your Remote Employees Working


With the world discovering alternative ways to work without human contact, the work from home force is getting a facelift. Companies must cope with most non-essential workers completing their work at home. Amidst a pandemic, could your productivity working from home actually be better?


A recent survey by Mercer, a human resources and workplace benefits firm, showed 94 percent of 800 employers indicated productivity was the same or higher with their employees working remotely. Employees report feeling more productive. So how can you ensure your employees have the tools they need to complete their daily tasks?


Here are six ways you can keep your team productive while they are working from home or in the field


  1. Equip your team with tech and productivity tools
  2. Establish daily check-ins
  3. Encourage dedicated workspaces
  4. Provide emotional and steady support
  5. Dress for success- even if at home
  6. Don't forget about non-work interactions and team building


When working remotely, employees can use tools, such as Office 365, to keep track of their time throughout the workday and to keep a detailed record of what they do throughout the day. Employees should also be overly communicative of their availability with their co-workers by letting them know their plans. Office 365 is a great platform for remote working. Stay in contact with all of your team members by using Microsoft Teams. Teams allows you to not only chat, but video conference, share files, share your screen, and much more. With Office 365, you also gain access to collaborative workspaces like SharePoint, and OneDrive for Business. Talk to Go2IT today about migrating to Office 365, or help with realizing its full potential if you are already signed up.


VPN is another great tool for remote workers. VPN allows your workers to connect to the company network securely, in order to access shared files on your servers, and other internal resources. A lot of users will use a VPN connection to remote into their actual computer at the office, making for a near seamless transition. Many VPN solutions now support multi-factor authentication, in order to further secure your resources.


As working from home slowly shifts to the norm, you can use the tips shared above to stay ahead of the curve and ensure your employees are as productive and happy as possible.

WHAT EXACTLY IS CLOUD COMPUTING AND HOW DO YOU USE IT?   Cloud computing is the delivery of different services through the Internet. These resources include tools and applications like data storage, servers, databases, networking, and software.  As long as an electronic device has access to the web, it has access to the data and the software programs to run it. Cloud computing depends on resource sharing, rather than using local servers or individual devices to host applications. It mostly only allows the application software to function when internet enabled devices are used.   There are four types of Cloud Computing you should learn about because they serve a broad range of functions over the internet- like virtual and storage servers: applications and authorization for desktop applications.   THE PUBLIC CLOUD Public cloud is best for businesses which have requirements that require managing the load; host application that is, Software-as-a-Service and manage applications which are used by many users.

A promising new technology trend is on the rise. Internet Of Things, or IoT. Have you heard of it? Many “things” are now being built with WiFi connectivity, meaning they can be connected to the Internet, and to each other.  The Internet of Things is a way of the future and has already enabled devices, home appliances, cars and much more to be connected to and exchange data over the Internet.   As consumers, we’re already using IoT and may not even realize it. We can lock our doors remotely, preheat ovens on our way home, track our fitness on our watches. However, businesses also have much to gain now and in the near future. The IoT can enable better safety, efficiency and decision making for businesses as data is collected and analyzed. It can enable predictive maintenance, speed up medical care, improve customer service, and offer benefits we haven’t even imagined yet.   We’re only in the beginning stages of this new technology trend: Forecasts suggest that by 2030 an average of 50 billion of these IoT devices will be in use around the world, creating a massive web of interconnected devices spanning everything from smartphones to kitchen appliances. The global spending on the Internet of Things (IoT) is forecast to reach 1.1 trillion U.S. dollars in 2022.   If you wish to step foot in this trending technology, you will have to learn about Information security, AI and machine learning fundamentals, networking, hardware
