Being away from your team is a real challenge for productivity. This physical absence might affect your efficiency as a team if not handled perfectly. Thankfully, there are tools made to effectively and closely monitor your whole team. These are innovations for managing a remote team in the Philippines.
Worry no more, if your member is not working, you may now see what he’s on and monitor everyone’s work progress.
1. Google Drive and Platforms
Google Drive is one of the most popular tools out there, especially for file management. It allows dispersed employees across the globe to access the files whenever colleagues are cannot be reached.
Also, platforms like Google Drive and Google Sheets are user-friendly for light and not so complex tasks. It can allow you to work on the same project in real-time.
Zoom is considered as one of the best video conferencing app. Its rapid growth and popularity prove its functionality among the professionals. We all hate those instances where the screen freezes with no sound or a lagging appearance of our co-workers in a video conference.
This is a team communication app that is most widely used by remote teams. Companies like Zapier, Buffer, and Help Scout even consider Slack as their virtual office. Through Slack, remote workers can immediately give feedback and inputs on a specific project. One special feature of this is that the team will be notified if there’s a new email subscriber or a product review.
Its simplicity is its unique selling point as it will not require a lot of information (that overwhelms users) and just gets the job done. This is a project management software that is fast-paced and flexible for the team to be more productive. Bonus, it’s visual approach on tracking progress and work makes it more appealing and easy to use.
5. 10,000 ft.
Using 10,000 ft. is like being 10,000 ft above the sky and seeing the ground. (Oops, that’s a terrible comparison.) Seriously though, it allows everyone to look at the bigger picture while working on your own and being on the same page. It can show everyone who’s working on a specific project and give you detailed analytics on the profitability of workers and projects. Sounds about right, eh?
Nope, this blog is not sponsored by those apps. Those are what we and others have been using and proven to be effective.
One secret in managing a remote team in the Philippines is to just treat them like how you treat your workers who are present in your office. They are not robots, as there is a human being behind that monitor working, so treat them like one. They are also capable of friendships and they can feel exhaustion and as well.
