Coronavirus: What Does WFH Mean for Your Business?
COVID-19 is turning us all into remote workers. But if you’re a business owner or a manager, you probably have a lot of questions about working from home.
In this article, we’re going to show you what working from home means for your business, and how to maximize productivity despite turbulent circumstances.
Let’s take a look!
Employees Working from Home Need Efficient Infrastructure
If this is the first time your employees are working from home, you’re going to have to set some ground rules and provide them with the necessary framework.
First, identify your existing processes.
Then, understand how you can replicate them through digital channels.
For example, if your employees hand in reports physically, help them set up Google Drive accounts to hand in their reports digitally.
Then, understand the important components of those processes.
For example, if your teams’ productivity relies on collaboration, you’ll need to select tools that can help them collaborate efficiently while working remotely. The majority of teams in the wake of the coronavirus crisis are using Zoom and Slack.
Thirdly, establish guidelines.
If your employees haven’t worked from home before, they need your guidance. Otherwise, they could end up slacking off just because they don’t know what to do.
Implement knowledge sharing processes.
For example, you could have your team meet via Zoom once a day to cover everything that needs to be done that day, and everything that was done the previous day.
