How to Help Your Employees Set Up Remotely

While the COVID-19 pandemic surges in the US, more offices are quickly transitioning to a remote workforce. Flexible employment opportunities including remote work are imperative to the productivity for your company, as well as the health and safety of your employees. While the digital workplace has been slowly changing for years, the need to work remotely is felt now more than ever. Is your office prepared to go fully remote? OSS can help.

Productivity In-Office vs. Remote 

One of the main issues with going partially or fully remote is the question surrounding employee productivity. But, the fact stands: working remotely boosts productivity. According to a Stanford University study, employees who work from home show boosts in productivity throughout the day compared to those who solely work in an office. At a time when working in an office is nearly impossible, it’s a nice bonus knowing your employees’ work won’t suffer if there is a quick transition to remote work.

Equipment Set-Up: Trust the Pros 

For some office spaces, sending employees home with their laptops is enough to get remote work started and in full swing. But for others, the idea of transitioning to remote work might feel like more of a scare than a solution. The professionals at Office Space Solutions are here to help. We have the professional experience to help companies safely plan, pack and transition to remote work, and can get you there in a fraction of the time it will take you on your own. We provide boxes for employees to take home all of their necessities, as well as help with data and cabling needs to get you well on your way to a fully remote setup.

How to Manage Remotely 

During the current climate, allowing employees to work remotely is not only beneficial to your organization, but it’s also imperative to the health and safety of your team. But, managing a team that spreads across a city, state, or even country is a daunting task. That’s where flexible contact comes into play. In the same way you provide feedback, project needs, or utilize team meetings face-to-face in the office, you can do so remotely. From video chats with Zoom or Google Hangouts to real-time communication with Slack or Microsoft Teams, it’s now more possible than ever to successfully work remotely. Project management is even made easier with Basecamp and Trello.

Working remotely is a necessity for much of the workforce today due to COVID-19. Boosted productivity, flexibility and safety are just a few of the top benefits of this new age way of doing business, and many organizations are quickly transitioning as a necessity.
