The last two years have highlighted the willingness of employees to seek more and more flexibility in the workplace, until they are willing to change employment to obtain it.
Flexibility has huge benefits for employees, including reduced burnout and greater job satisfaction, and even greater productivity when organized well.
Choosing to adopt a corporate culture based on well-being and flexibility allows the company, the entrepreneur and employees to work in a productive, positive and proactive environment.
Here are 4 things that can help companies create a work environment that makes employees happy and satisfied.
1 - USE THE RIGHT TOOLS IN REMOTE WORKING
2 - AUTONOMY, FLEXIBILITY AND CONTROL
3 - FEEDBACK ALSO FROM A DISTANCE
4 - WORK OPTIMIZATION IN REMOTE WORKING
The idea that working from home is less stressful than working from the office is correct but only in part: avoiding traffic, public transport, finding a parking space are points in favor of remote working, but there are remote problems that could undermine your team's productivity.
Precisely for this reason, to make the working environment as less stressful as possible, there are 4 elements to consider to optimize company productivity.
1. USE THE RIGHT TOOLS IN REMOTE WORKING
What are the tools needed for remote work?
First of all you need a CRM to collect all the data and information about customers and potential customers.
After that it will be important to give the whole team tools that can work remotely, and that integrate perfectly with your CRM system: in this way they will be able to provide all customers with the right solutions.
It must be possible to monitor in real time what happens in the warehouses, the flows of goods, returns and new arrivals, working on site as well as remotely.
In this way the working environment will be more peaceful: your employees will be free to work from anywhere, without feeling the pressure.
2. AUTONOMY, FLEXIBILITY AND CONTROL
To create a stimulating work environment, also based on trust, it is good to have more people work as a team: each of these people will have autonomy in relation to the part of the project that will be assigned, but also a responsibility towards colleagues.
In order for no one to harm the other, in a remote working environment it is good to set clear rules of action and include a control figure in the team: setting deadlines and dividing the work into brackets prevents collaborators from resting on their laurels and slowing down the work.
A strategy designed in this sense allows an increase in productivity, an optimization of hours worked and moments of discussion and support between team members.
3. FEEDBACK ALSO FROM A DISTANCE
Another of the possibilities you have to make the workplace productive is to provide your collaborators with constant feedback on what they do.
In this case, as in any type of corporate communication, the cloud communication platform that you should equip your company with intervenes in an excellent way.
But how to make the feedback even more detailed?
Just use the Voxloud phone system and video call employees with the video conference function that allows you to talk in real time with all employees without neglecting every detail or with call recording that can help you make your work environment even more flexible.
4. WORK OPTIMIZATION IN REMOTE WORKING
Organizing and scheduling corporate work in a defined, clear, structured way, allows everyone to have a calendar with deadlines, projects, shifts and work schedules.
There are technologies that allow all workers to have the calendar of what happens in the company, team communication, the ability to exchange messages without losing a single one available on a single platform, and to organize meetings while working in different places.
One of the tools that has proved most useful and that packs a lot of features into a single object is the Voxloud cloud phone system.
Equipping your company with a cloud phone system frees you from the burden of having to stay in the company, allows your employees to manage their work anywhere thanks to a simple application to download on a tablet, smartphone or PC and significantly reduces your business costs.
