With the worst public health crisis for a generation upon us, many organisations are encouraging working from home during the coronavirus pandemic.
Coronavirus (Covid-19) is making its presence known, impacting on businesses and communities around the world.
Events are being cancelled, schools are being closed, flights are being grounded and countries are on lock down.
Working From Home During The Coronavirus Pandemic?
We can tell you a thing or two about remote working, having researched and implemented the best tools on the market for our business to become location independent.
We built our business on Zoho technology, having worked as a remote team since 2015.
As a remote team, we use a variety of Zoho tools daily to ensure our team are able to collaborate and communicate on projects and client work. For example, we use Cliq and Meeting for communicating; Workdrive and Projects for collaborating and Writer, Sheet and Show for productivity.
We found that with the right set of apps, you can maintain a close-knit and productive working environment for your business and teams, no matter where you are based.
Potential Issues With Remote Working
Being asked to work from home will be a sudden change for many businesses and employees, with working from home the exception, not the norm.
Remote working for all employees is not ingrained in organisational working practices, with many businesses not having the technology or tools to work remotely, or the infrastructure to support the whole organisation working from home.
Having tools that aren’t integrated and talking to each other can cause duplication across the business and leave a black hole of information sharing for teams working collaboratively, wasting multiple employee’s time.
We appreciate the next few months are going to be difficult for many businesses, as you figure out how to ensure your teams can continue to work effectively from home, without major disruption.
