With the recent outbreak of the novel COVID-19, various organizations have chosen to implement work from home.
Check out these 4 tips to boost team engagement remotely below:
Try to be open and discuss your team agenda preferably once in the morning and once before end of the day. As long as this is done in a brief, informal manner, it will promote transparency in communication and allow your team to know what is expected at the end of the working day.
When it comes to working with remote teams, the core idea is that you have to allow flexible hours yet maintain consistency and organization. In order to remain organized during this period, make use of online social platforms such as SLACK or even Video Conferencing to maintain that communication funnel with your team.
Employees need to trust that their managers are looking out for their best interest. Similarly, managers need to trust that their employees are engaged and motivated on task even if they are not in a work environment.
It is important to understand that the outbreak of COVID-19 is a difficult period for everyone and during this adjustment time, the managers and employees needs to be patient and accept that others will make mistakes and are doing their best.
