3 Micro-Habits That Will Boost Remote Work Productivity
Remote work has been integrating into mainstream work culture for years. But in 2020, we experienced a global lockdown that quickly shifted millions of workers out of the office and into their homes.
While the initial shock that came with this massive shift may have subsided, many remote workers are still learning how to adjust to this new way of life. Monitoring a work schedule is more challenging when doing it alone. Many remote workers are finding it difficult to operate as they did before the Covid-19 pandemic.
Not only are global stress levels much higher than they were pre-pandemic, but adapting to the switch from a busy office to an isolated desk is a challenge remote workers are still struggling to overcome.
Fortunately, remote workers can implement numerous useful tips and tricks to create an efficient and productive work environment from home. One of them is the adoption of healthy micro-habits.
Let’s find out why these habits are important and how they can help us.
Effective Hacks for Employees to Handle Work-Related Stress and Increase Productivity
Every workday comes with its own challenges and setbacks, yet employees often find ways to overcome them on their own, while achieving their goals at the same time. One day of stress-causing triggers is no big deal, but pile them up for a few weeks, and you get a disastrous recipe that companies rarely notice early enough to prevent – the recipe for burnout. The end result is reduced productivity, employee satisfaction, and an increase in work-related stress for the long haul.
Not paying attention to the little things can lead to major shifts in your company culture down the line, so it’s crucial to work on preventative measures to beat stress as early as possible. Especially if you want to elevate productivity in the new normal and make people feel safe in the workplace, you need to get creative with how you prevent work-related stress, minimize setbacks, and enable your employees to focus on their own professional output. Here are a few hacks to help your teams thrive.Read full post

How to Make Your Home Office Work for You
Envy is the thief of joy, or so say the gurus of internet advice boards. It’s all too easy to scroll thru Instagram and get immediately jealous of how top influencers have decked out their home offices to look like they’re work-at-home CEOs.
There’s nothing wrong with getting design tips from success stories on social media, but you might not need as many changes as you think to get a functional workspace up and running in your home. Here are some easy, practical ways to get everything you need — without taking up space with what you don’t.
Six Tips for Keeping Your Team Connected While Quarantined
There is no doubt that these are challenging times. With only essential businesses open for face-to-face transactions during the pandemic, other businesses have closed or are operating on a remote basis.
Those working remotely must reimagine their positions and adjust to the lack of immediate interaction, direction, and oversight that is readily available in a physical workspace. Employees used to an informal, collaborative office environment must pivot 180 degrees and function individually while mastering the various technologies that allow them to communicate with coworkers and clients.
Boosting Employee Productivity During Remote Working
Technological advancements have engineered many changes in the labor market; workers are now able to work as freelancers and employers are able to set-up remote teams with little to no hitches. Remote working allows employees the much-needed flexibility to work when they feel most productive without needing to abide by the traditional 9-5 timeline. Employers, on the other hand, are now able to outsource skills overseas, especially talents that aren’t available in their local labor market. Remote working also helps employers to save on overhead costs by eliminating the need for physical offices. Remote working is clearly a good trend for business.
There is a challenge that plagues remote working, though: How do employees boost employee productivity for a remote workforce? Well, a recent market study by FlexJobs showed that with the right management techniques, 66% of professionals are happier and more productive working from their homes than in an office. Many workers argue that they get less distracted when working from remote locations because there are no unnecessary impromptu meetings, no office drama or politics, and no bosses breathing down their necks.
But while that could be true, managing a remote team’s productivity isn’t as easy or straightforward as some studies make it seem. Employers live with the constant fear that their remote workers might relax and fail to deliver services efficiently or up to the needed standards. That is why you need to learn the following proper management tips for leveraging the flexibility of a remote workforce without sacrificing productivity.Read full post
