Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, more employees are working remotely than ever before. As management is challenged with leading effective remote teams, organizations may consider internal best practices and question whether any adjustments would help these teams succeed. By addressing the unique needs of employees in the remote workplace, employers can set the stage for effective and productive teams.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an all-time high of employees telecommuting, remote work had previously been growing steadily, and likely will continue to expand in the coming years. While many of the same principles of leading effective teams remain in place, organizations can take steps to ensure that remote teams are performing at a high level.
To help with this transition, we have created a new Remote Work Newsletter (January/February 2021). This issue was developed as an employee-facing communication piece to help our clients share information with their employees related to remote workstation ergonomics and preventing cyberattacks. Feel free to use this within your organization as an all-employee email, bulletin board post, etc. Click the following link to view and download the Remote Work Newsletter.
