Individual remote work is usually not a problem. The stairs begin when more people are under our control or when we cooperate in a larger project. In order to reconcile many responsibilities and to win over different personalities, we should stick to a few rules.
Constant contact with the team
Most of your team members should be notified about remote work. The employer is obliged to mention the possibility of introducing such a procedure already at the stage of the job advertisement posted on the Internet. In this way, we are sure that our associates are aware of working in a group. This state should be maintained at all costs through daily contact as part of remote work. We cannot contact others only when we assign responsibilities. Motivating and summarizing conversations should be a permanent element of each day.
Trust but control
As a person managing a given team, we should know about the strengths and weaknesses of individual employees. It is on their basis that responsibilities are allocated and a time frame for their implementation is set. In this case, we must have confidence in individual people, but constantly monitor the effectiveness and efficiency of their work. This can be helped by monitoring the progress of work with the use of specialized software or contact by e-mail, telephone or direct.
Transparent way of communication
The method of communication between individual employees proves the effectiveness of the team. If it is disturbed, we can be sure that some tasks may not be performed properly. To counteract this, we should implement technological solutions that will unify our message and be transparent for everyone. Therefore, the decision to choose the communicator should be discussed in a larger group, with the participation of the manager or owner of the company. Then we will choose the most optimal method suited to our work.
