How to Make Remote Work Easier on Management

If you want to make the transition to remote work straightforward or improve the results you’re currently seeing as a remote team, there are various ways to empower your management to succeed.

The best way to succeed in a remote work environment is to instill clarity throughout your organization. Usually, that should come from the top, which is why you need to make sure your team leaders have the tools and systems to introduce productivity performance measures and improve results.

Use Employee Monitoring Software

A common concern among management is that employees will take advantage of the remote work setting and put in less effort than they would if they were at the office. The trust you place in your employees in a remote work environment is easier to justify if you know exactly how they spend their work hours.

To keep tabs on employee activity throughout the day, down to the apps they use and websites they visit, you can use a tool like Insightful.

With employee monitoring software Insightful, you can schedule shifts for all your team members and receive notifications if they clock in later than expected. You can also view their activity in real-time, or view a detailed report after a week or month to evaluate their performance over time.

Find Communication Solutions

To thrive in a remote work model, team members and management need to be able to communicate quickly and effectively.

Usually, email and phone or video calls aren’t enough to keep things ticking over.

That’s why it’s useful to assess your teams’ communication needs on a case-by-case basis to see what would work best.

For some, a solution like Slack which allows for context-specific chat channels streamlines communication. Whereas for others, simply adding comments or notes to tasks in a Kanban board solution is the easiest way to collaborate and stay in touch with team members.

Make Information Easy to Find

A big obstacle to enhancing employee performance and remote work collaboration is hard-to-find information. Without access to a folder that you might find at the office, you need a suitable replacement.

There are several ways to open up access to important information:

  • File sharing solutions - Software solutions such as Google Docs and Dropbox make file sharing straightforward. 
  • Knowledge bases - Knowledge bases or wikis allow team members to find project-specific information with a quick search.
  • In-app folders - With many project management platforms, you can create folders to store information about various roles, clients, and projects.
