WORKING REMOTELY TODAY
Today we are in a State of Emergency due to the COVID-19, all companies have had to adapt their economic activity, many have managed to adapt to this situation, but not all have been able to do so because of their activity.
Those that have been able to adapt have been thanks to teleworking, in this case, remote work from home. Many of these companies were not prepared for this sudden change, and have had to adapt abruptly to the situation.
To continue with normality at this moment is fundamental to favor the situation and that it is more bearable, the key is to adapt our daily routine to do it from home. Companies are putting on their side so that the employees have the necessary resources and can continue working remotely without any problem.
Teleworking, in addition to maintaining the activity of the company, allows us to protect workers and their families, those companies that implemented teleworking in the first place without being forced to do, demonstrate their concern for a commitment to their employees.
Here are some tips for adapting everyday aspects of office life to teleworking:
- Video conferencing for meetings
It is more effective than it may seem at first sight, although a phone call can solve many problems, talking to a person “face to face” makes communication much easier.
- Video conferencing during working hours
You do not have to call just to hold a meeting having a video conference with your team in the background while you work can help you to feel that work environment, plus it’s easier to communicate and resolve doubts if they arise.
- Documents in the cloud
It is essential that employees need to be able to work remotely without missing any materials, and it also promotes communication between the team since everyone has simple access to everything.
- Online learning
What not many companies take into account is that in addition to working remotely, they can adapt other company activities such as training their employees. For those who were already using an online training format, they have not undergone any changes and are carrying out the activities in a normal way. Companies that used to to train their employees in person, can join the change, and convert the training of their employees to an online format. One of the aspects that generate distrust of online training is the dehumanization of training.
Currently, this aspect has completely changed, online training is not based on theoretical slides or videos, classes with private teachers who adapt the content to your needs and monitors the learning process.
In addition, those companies providing online solutions, aware of the current situation, are offering solutions increasingly adapted to the needs of customers, helping to normalise working life at home.
