The goal is to help you skyrocket your company culture and employee engagement.
The concept of virtual teams (remote-working) isn’t new. Even before Covid-19 tons of people were already practicing remote-working which is not a new concept for them.
“In 2018, about five million employees worked remotely,” Dyment says. “That represented only a small fraction of American workers—about 3.6% of the workforce. But over the past two weeks alone, these numbers swelled significantly.”
But for those managers and their teams who are now working from home, Here are a few tips for building your Super-Awesome Virtual Team:
1. Understand the diversity between worker’s situation
It is important to understand that everyone will pace from the shift of office-to-home differently. Even on a larger scale, industries are shifting at different paces.
A whole new set of policies are brought into offices regarding remote work. Main thing to understand is that, people with different backgrounds are going remote so not everyone is a tech savvee and it can take quite much of a time to complete a even a simple task digitally however, this is definitely a chance for all the people from all the backgrounds to enhance their skill set and match with the world becoming a digital global village.
2. Rules updated and enhanced!
How can a manager create a remote-working environment in which each person’s distinct situations and talents are taken into account?
The best virtual teams operate from a “virtual team charter,”.
“A virtual charter is a short but meaningful set of principles that ensures that all team members contribute equally in a virtual workplace, and which guide the rules of engagement online,” he says.
3. Be the motivation
Our world is experiencing unprecedented times, in times like these everything seems uncertain and everyone has gone through quite much of an emotional trauma ride. From personal to professional life everything has taken a shake. In these hard times it comes as a duty for the managers to give a silver lining to the situation and be the source of light to all their employees.
All we can hope is a better tomorrow for everyone and that requires management that suits all your needs as per the demand of your business.
