We're all forced to work remotely during this fatal pandemic - but it's also our chance to embrace the remote work-era and increase both productivity and employee satisfaction!
In just 3 weeks, the worst pandemic in a century has accelerated 10+ years of corporate digitization. Overnight, hundreds of thousands of companies have been forced to embrace a remote and decentralized work-environment. This equals a time for change! If you haven’t yet embraced the era of remote work, now is the time to seize the opportunity this pandemic has brought about.
At this webinar, we will discuss how we organize our workday when everyone is sitting at home and not at their desk; What tools and practices we must incorporate in order to stay “connected”, communicate and organize work; How you decide among the jungle of digital collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, Trello, Monday, Gsuite, Milanote, etc.; And how we can craft a culture that supports this (for some) wildly different way of working?
A lot of companies, especially incumbents, are sceptical about the merits of remote-working. Well, you might be surprised. Not only does the latest research suggest that we become more productive when employers offer more flexibility, but there are also the benefits of reduced costs, more engaged employees and less turnover.
Consider these facts from State of remote working (global) 2019:
- The #1 reason that people choose to work remotely is increased productivity/better focus.
- Companies that offer remote-friendly options see 25% less turnover.
- Those who work remotely at least once a month are 24% more likely to feel happy and productive in their roles than those who don’t or can’t work remotely.
So, remote working is not just essential to your business right now – it should be a natural part of your everyday organization. And if you’re not there yet this is a great chance to get started. Join us when we discuss concrete tools and cultural practices you need to master the remote-era.
