In light of the current prospect of many UK businesses having to enforce remote working, you may be concerned about how you're going to keep your team connected.
Investing in ways to support your remote team's needs can secure a great future for your organisation.
With more and more organisations expanding globally each year, strong remote teams are not only an expanding norm, but a growing asset; so why should your business be any different when remote working becomes a necessity?
It's important to note that the best results are only attainable with the right tools. As your team may be faced with the prospect of remote working, consider the following software to help the transition be as seamless as possible:
Online file-sharing and note-organisation tool:
When considering remote working for your team, make sure that they have easy access to store, organise and share files, so you and your team can still work on documents together outside of the office. Microsoft Teams offers real-time editing capabilities, ridding you of the hassle of back-and-forth emails. Using Teams, it's so easy to create team notes, respond to questions and log updates straight on a document, in a completely secure environment.
Video and text chat services for real-time conversations:
The first thing you worry about when facing the prospect of your team remote working is communication. With Microsoft Teams your team will have easy access to video software for important meetings, as well as instant messaging for the more urgent or short conversations. Not only will both of these abilities keep your team connected, but the upfront investment in chat services could even reduce future call and meeting costs.
Time and energy to create a strong remote culture:
So, as you've seen above, Microsoft Teams can be relied upon to help create a successful remote working team. However, the best advice we could give you is to put the time and energy into investing in relationships between your team. Ensuring you have a strong culture of trust and mutual accountability for remote working will ensure a successful team regardless of their working environment and will secure enduring benefits.
