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.

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.
