Remote Working Made Easy

Welcome to part two in our latest series of daily posts, brought to you by the team behind Remote Working Helpdesk.

 We have previously discussed the dos and don’ts of being a remote working micro-manager.

 For now, we want to change the subject. 

With more organizations than ever transitioning to a remote working model, several academic studies are being released on the subject.

 In one such study, it was revealed that there are eight major skills needed in order to successfully work remotely.

 Over the next few days, we will be exploring what these are and why they are needed.

Trustworthiness

Trustworthiness

Remote working can lead to trust issues if you aren’t careful.

 That is because there is no physical supervision of employees when they are remote working.

 To a certain degree, you must have faith and trust that others are working as hard as you are.

 When there are trust issues in an organization, it begins to reflect in the world.

 Workers will become increasingly isolated and less communication will lead to errors in work. 

Remote working leads to several holes in your IT security plan.

 If there are trust issues, workers are less likely to report errors they find in fear of being reprimanded.

 Remote workers need to trust one another and their management team for any remote working IT security plan to be a success.

Discipline

Discipline

It may be strange, but some workers feel as they need the threat of discipline to get their work done.

 In the office, you likely have the fear of your boss walking by to keep you from getting too far into the weird part of Youtube.

 At home, you are kind of counting on your motivation and discipline to keep you on task.

 You have heard that remote working and data protection gives you freedom, but you also need to know how to properly use that freedom.

 Try to block out a working schedule for yourself while you work on bettering your discipline.
