For a majority of businesses, working from home is now the ‘normal’, with coronavirus throwing the corporate world into unknowns and new territory.
Mastering remote work isn’t easy. It takes self-discipline, an inspiring environment and the ability to free yourself of distractions. In fact, 54% of remote workers report that they often feel more stressed when they’re on the clock, compared to being in the ‘typical’ office.
So, if you’ve made the move to WFH, the first key to success is making sure everyone in your workforce is backed by resources and platforms that fuel positive outcomes. To really thrive in this new way of operating, all industries need to adapt and overcome – and that means assessing communication as a whole.
Right now, physical interaction isn’t necessarily possible, so it’s integral to give your teams the best chance at maintaining productivity and transparency. These are the go-to tools you need to do just that.
As a digital marketing business, Edge has long been a fan of adopting some of these tools and platforms, but they’re even more crucial to our success, now that our staff have gone remote. These essentials allow us to keep on top of our client projects, allow for consistent communications and streamline all aspects of Google Ads campaign management.
Whether you’re in the marketing field or not, these resources are paramount to keeping your business grounded while things are less than practical right now. Roll out an approach with your staff members, adopt new, agile ways to increase output and keep on track as the work days tick by.
Handy tip: Some video conferencing platforms are offering free versions of their software, to meet the needs of WFH employees during COVID-19. So hunt around and do your research to see who has a competitive offer on hand.
