So, with the pandemic causing havoc in everyone’s life it changed how we live ours and it also changed aspects of our lives that we thought to have always been constant. On aspect that we can obviously point out is the concept of working. Pre-pandemic we can see that we work on a face-to-face basis and dealing business on a personal means. But after the pandemic a new work-ethics has emerged and that is output-based working system.
It does not have to be always reporting in the office anymore, but rather it would the type of work where everyone’s work will be based on the outcomes and outputs that is done on a specific work schedule, and they call this Work-From-Home and it actually works. If you want efficiency in such mode of working here are some tools that you need.
Tablets and Phones
Of course, it goes without saying that you need a computer to do your tasks at work, actually all work categories which can be opted to be done at home is most likely done through computers. If your job is on a more hands-on type, it cannot be opted to be done at home.
You need an extra pair of gadgets such as tablets or phones to do your job easily. Extra gadgets are like having extra pair of hands while working from home. It can be used to do extra details of the work such as researching and answering emails.
You need conference tools to be able to communicate with your group leader or your team members. One of the things that is sacrificed when it comes to working from home is communication with co-workers which leads to tasks being dragged slowly into completion because of lesser cooperation.
In this case a virtual telepresence robot can actually help with the team as it can take place the physical presence of the person involved in the task and can actually help boost team cooperation with each member because there is real-time feedback on the video and audio with such device.
Project Management tools
You also need an online office desk to work on your tasks or goals for that day. Basically, having a desk at home won’t work, you have to have a project management tool in your phone or PC so that you can work on tasks in a systematic manner that is in sync with the team’s goals.
One important note with working from home is that each of the tasks must be coordinated to each member because these goals are interrelated with the goals of the whole team and the company as well. Having a digital workspace that manages the project helps the employee work efficiently with the task that are prioritized.
File Sharing Platform
Lastly, as an employee working from home you also have to be systematic in how you share files with your co-workers. On a face-to-face office setting, one can just actually send file through the local area network, but with remote working this comes off as a challenge. Thus, it is important to have a file sharing platform that is shared with everybody so that files and other documents can be submitted and sent smoothly with leaders and team members.
This mode of working might sound easy but it actually is quite challenging for many of the workers involved, but then with the aid of the tools that are mentioned above it can be made a lot easier and more efficient.
