Working Effectively From Home
The COVID-19 pandemic is sending a large proportion of workers to work from home. To deal with the new situation, organisations will have to adjust to a new way of work. Here is how to make remote work work for your business
Move Your Office To The Cloud
Remote working systems allow your staff to access the information from anywhere. Basic features include different permission levels, back-up and security.

Talk With Your Staff
Apps like Zoom, Skype, Webx and others (see separate article) allow you to have video calls up to 100 participants and share the screen with everyone else in conversation, as if you were next to each other. Most of these Apps offer free calls. One of the usefull featuers managers use is the ability to mute participants during presentation.

Create a comfortable working environment
Make sure those who work from home have the right equipment: high-speed Internet, wireless headphones that will move the screen while making long calls, a comfortable keyboard and large screen
Set Expectations And Be flexible
Core Business Hours is a concept that determines when employers want employees to be available – which is critical when working remotely. It is possible to make a decisive decision for the entire organization or for each team to decide on their individual needs. The classic hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In today’s exceptional situation, especially among parents of young children who cannot be helped by grandparents, they should be excluded and decided on the ideal hours for them – perhaps in the evening – and allow for flexibility so as not to miss their contribution to work. Ask employees about the hard work It is precisely during times of stress and full of anxiety, existential and occupational, that it is important to do a virtual respite with a virtual air where you can take the opportunity to ask employees about the hard work. ‘Houseparty’ is an app that lets you have an online party. You can hear music, share screen shots of whoever runs it, play videos, dance, and do sports together.
Communicate even when there is nothing new
Ongoing management communication is the most critical thing in the Corona. At Google, the two CEOs make a weekly call to hundreds of thousands of employees virtual to update them with innovations and allow them to ask questions. Transparency is more important in situations of anxiety and uncertainty, and management must communicate with employees even when there’s nothing new.
