Working remotely comes with many benefits—from eliminating your commute to giving you more time with your family. But one drawback is not being around your coworkers. The atmosphere, camaraderie, and spontaneous conversations that happen when everyone’s together in an office are impossible to replicate at home and it becomes difficult to create community.
In this Industry Buzz podcast, the BCStrategies Experts share examples of how companies are engaging employees during work-from-home.
A dispersed company cannot be successful without the entire organization contributing to support their remote workforce. HR and IT must work together to keep their employees engaged and productive. In the U.S. a survey taken by Global Work Place shows that 73% of employees feel like they are very successful working from home. But this success didn’t come without challenges as a rush of employees went from office to home.
HR professionals thrive on helping others—from veteran employees to new hires—and to succeed, they have to be excellent communicators. Working remotely, however, can present new challenges, especially when it comes remote collaboration with teammates and addressing employees’ concerns. But those challenges aren’t insurmountable.
