With social distancing, the United States has made a swift shift from traditional in-person office hours to the work-from-home lifestyle. Many people are working remotely for the first time, discovering the benefits and encountering its challenges. For many firms, how well their workforce performs during this time will influence future policy and culture. A remote workforce results in reduced overhead expenses, higher employee satisfaction, a more productive workforce, and the competitive advantage of sourcing talent without geographic restrictions.
At Propr, we know that Remote Has Always Been Better! Here are eight ways to work remotely like a chump champ!
Establish your working hours, deadlines, and breaks and stick to them!
Ban your kids, spouse, dogs, and cats from your new home office. They’ll still love you.
Use tech as a tool to help you communicate and collaborate well. Be kind and respectful!
Be intentional about spending time with and talking to your peeps. Don’t be a stranger.
Let people know what truly matters and why they are important. Keep it real!
We’re all adults here; Don’t micromanage or set unrealistic goals. Teamwork!
Remember, it ain’t about asses in seats; it’s about performance and results. Recognize!
Enjoy the remote life (aka working in your underwear) while you can. Peace & Love!
