When you’re not seeing your colleagues every day, you may find that the regular interaction that comes with working in the office can start to drop off. It’s therefore important to maintain consistent levels of communication with your team. There are a number of video conferencing services that can help maintain a certain level of face to face interaction between your team, even when you’re not seeing each other in person.
You should also encourage your managers to regularly check in with their teams via video or conference calls. This can help to give your team a chance to talk through any questions or concerns that they may have with their line manager so they can then provide them with support where needed.
As well as scheduling in video calls to run through work projects, you could also use them for company update meetings and social events. A virtual team quiz on a Friday afternoon could be a great way to boost morale and catch up with the team ahead of the weekend.
While working from home can take some getting used to, particularly if you’re used to working in a busy environment, ensuring that you maintain a routine, prioritise a positive work life balance and maintain good levels of communication can help to make the transition easier for you and your team.
