Help the team prioritize projects using a cloud-based project management platform that allows them to log in from any device, smartphone, or tablet with an internet connection.

FREMONT, CA: Before the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home was a privilege for many businesses. Working remotely is now the only way to keep things going smoothly, with social distancing rules in place all over the world. Although remote working allows team members to have more flexibility in their work schedules, it also poses several challenges for employers. Here are three ways employers can help in remote working:

Prioritizing and Project Management

Top 10 Workforce Management Companies in UK - 2020Working from home allows employees to be more flexible with their schedules, but it also allows them to struggle with proper job prioritization. Encourage your workers to use distraction-reducing tools, including browser plugins that block social media websites during work hours to ensure they get the most critical work done. Encourage them to focus on energy management rather than time management. Instead of forcing them to work when they are most productive, let them work when they are most effective. Help the team prioritize projects using a cloud-based project management platform that allows them to log in from any device, smartphone, or tablet with an internet connection.

Technology

You probably provide your workers with computer and software subscriptions and any other resources they need to do their jobs well in the office. This is often not the case for remote staff, who are often expected to use their own devices. This can lead to contradictions, problems with knowledge transfer, and even developmental delays. As a result, it's best to handle remote employees as if they were in the workplace and provide them with all they need to complete their tasks.

Security

Maintaining data security in the company can be challenging. Your team is responsible for keeping not just their personal information but also company information secure at all times, regardless of where the remote employees are doing the work – whether they are traveling the world or working from their basement. Irrespective of where your staff works or what computer they use, you'll need to keep your organization's sensitive and confidential information secure.
