The opportunity to work remotely is, not only growing rapidly among companies, but has now become criteria professionals look for during their job search. This benefit enables individuals to have a more flexible schedule, increasing productivity and promoting work-life balance – Whether it is working from their living room or the local coffee shop, working remotely provides employees the chance to design their own workspace and switch things up on their own time. However, one downside to this luxury is the lack of company culture seen or felt on a daily basis. While it seems impossible, there are a few ways to shift this perception and connect often with your team, providing motivation and engagement!

Team Schedule
Commonly, the biggest “work from home” perk is being able to complete your tasks on your own watch, not necessarily following a broader, distinct schedule. You ultimately know your most productive time of the day, so use this to your advantage to ensure you are producing the best work. However, utilizing a schedule is a way to connect with your team and telework alongside them – Doing this will allot time for quick regroups and brainstorming. Blocking time out on your team’s calendar per week will offer these conveniences, as well as a standing meeting to provide routine.

Communication Tools
With digital workspaces on trend right now, employees working inside and outside of the office are all converting to app and cloud-based programs. Utilize these functionalities and find one that best suits your team for both organization and easy communication purposes. Chat apps like Slack give a team space to talk and share files amongst each other in real time – Additionally, there are others to be considered that offer a place to streamline tasks, so, even though you aren’t desk mates with your peers, you are still able to efficiently collaborate.

Culture Outings
Make an effort to attend events outside of office hours with your team, and, if these are not currently available, take lead in creating them – This exertion will not be overlooked by your co-workers. Casual outings designate time for team bonding and getting to know your colleagues on a level other than work conversations. Feeling a connection to your company will enhance your overall mindset about the organization and job you do, ultimately pushing you forward in your role.

Company culture does not have to appear nonexistent to remote employees. While it may take a bit of extra work to cultivate culture into a remote team, it can be successfully done! Taking these tips into consideration will boost the morale amongst the “work from homers” and identify a new sense of team work.

When I was a remote worker, suspected that in the event that he didn't get notification from me and there were no protests from clients, that I should do fine, of Professional Services at Mactive. The musing was that no news was uplifting news, however that isn't generally the case for telecommuters. I knew there had to be a better way to keep remote employees engaged.
