How do you stay motivated to work from home day in day out and not see your colleagues in person?
We have set up Microsoft Teams, so that we can video call each-other, officially twice a day, but throughout the day too. It helps us all to see a cheery face and reconnect with each-other.
Many of us have been asked to isolate ourselves from others i.e. stay at home for some time - have you started any new hobbies or interests? if so, can you share some ideas on what you now do to keep yourself occupied during these challenging times?
We hope to go to Greece in the summer, so intend to start to learn some Greek conversation.
For managers who have teams working from home - what do you do to stay in touch and make sure your staff are motivated and happy with the change in working environment?
Using Microsoft Teams we have been able to stay in contact with each-other throughout the day. We have a morning meeting to assign tasks, obtain feedback, understand any limitations or restrictions from any colleague that day, i.e. unwell, technical issues, etc.. operational or specific assistance etc. and another one at the end of the day too to update and inform each-other and conduct any handovers, if any staff members won't be working the following day. It gives us all a chance to engage with each-other. We also use Slack, so that people can either group chat or chat individually, throughout the day and allow us to manage breaks and lunch times effectively.
For those who are NEW to working from home - When things get back to normal after the pandemic (virus) do you think you would prefer to work back in an office or work from home or split time between work at home and the office? Please explain your answer
I certainly think that when we return to "normal", the way we consider where we conduct our work will become different, as people and employers will weigh up the advantages/benefits and disadvantages/problems that they experienced during this time, so I expect that there will be more flexibility in the opportunity of working from home, that fit certain requirements whereby homeworking appeared to be the most effective method for the Business, and the staff member. The important aspect is that remote working can be productive, effective and does work well, when implemented and managed efficiently and this has now become more apparent than ever.
