Still Working From Home?
Working from home is something that has become commonplace in the UK since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020. For a while, many employees enjoyed the novelty of the new work environment, but with time productivity can fall and teams can become demotivated.
If you currently have teams working from home and are finding this to be the case within your business, there are a few things you can do to kickstart productivity levels and keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.
- Review your internal communications. Reviewing your internal communication strategy can identify weaknesses that drain productivity. Your teams will be able to work more efficiently if they can access everything they need and can communicate easily with one another. Choosing business mobile phone packages that provide the minutes, texts, and data that your employees need, as well as opting for devices that are compatible with online communication tools such as Zoom will cover most bases.
- Set a schedule for daily and weekly workloads. Setting a schedule and planning workloads in advance is a guaranteed way to maximise efficiency. Bear in mind that things can change quickly within a business, so try to stay flexible. This will allow you and your staff to work proactively, while being empowered to tackle unexpected challenges. Discuss how workloads will be planned and communicated to teams in advance and keep in contact with each other with progress reports and the offer of support where necessary.
- Keep an up-to-date to-do list. To-do lists are perfect for tasks that fall outside your regular workload. Using time management apps on a compatible smartphone is a great way to ensure your teams can keep track of what they need to do, and many of these can be shared among a team so everyone can stay on the same page.
