When working remotely, it's important to continue communicating with your team and manager. These days there are numerous tools to utilize for video conferencing and calling. For example, Skype and ClearSlide are useful—not only to lessen social isolation, but prove beneficial for 'checking in' with colleagues. It's essential to connect weekly to chat about goals, future projects, and daily tasks. Don't forget to chat about your progress and workload to your manger.
While remote working provides the flexibility to work your own hours, it’s possible to find yourself getting stuck in front of the computer screen without taking regular breaks. Remember to eat nutritious food and commit to any exercise regimes you have, whether it be going to the gym or for a walk to clear your mind. With increased flexibility, you may create a healthy work-life balance, which will in turn enable you to be focused and productive when you need to be.
To be able to concentrate on the tasks you need to deliver when working remotely, it’s imperative to find a workspace where you feel comfortable to focus—whether that be a co-working office, a local coffee shop, or a space at home. Wherever the location, make sure it’s somewhere that motivates and inspires you to work to the best of your ability.
With the world becoming increasingly connected through email, social media, and messaging apps, it’s initially challenging to ‘log off’ from all notifications at specific times. For example, if you are working in a different time zone with your co-workers, it’s important to set a time to log off for the night. It’s not a good idea to set a standard that you’re available 24/7—be sure only to work when you’re most productive.
One of the most common mistakes managers make with their remote workforce is giving them less attention than those who are working on site. There are several technological advancements you can leverage to engage remote workers, such as video conferencing software, file sharing solutions and remote workforce management tools.
Email, text, and instant messaging apps can help a lot in maintaining an open line with remote workers. But they’re not enough. In order to add a more personal touch, make a point to communicate through video conferencing as well. Speaking with employees face to face (even virtually) will prevent them from feeling isolated. It also puts you in a better position to read visual cues and reduce miscommunications.
When engaging in video conferences, don’t limit yourself to one-on-one engagements. While certain situations may call for one-on-one sessions, it’s important to instill teamwork and foster camaraderie. That can only be achieved if you create the environment for it.
More often than not, your remote workforce will need access to the same tools they use while onsite. That includes peripherals, especially printers. Telecommuters will want those tools to enable them to work quickly and efficiently. That means they won’t like applications that lag or crash unexpectedly.
Remote work does not necessarily equate to less stress. On the contrary, there are remote workers who end up getting overloaded. These are the people who either receive a deluge of assignments from bosses who believe they’re available 24/7 or take advantage of the fact that these hard-working folks don’t know how to “unplug.”
