As Coronavirus Forces Employees to Work from Home, Here’s How to Manage a Remote Workforce
Where Are All My Employees? Here’s How to Manage a Remote Workforce
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the workforce is unprecedented. In New York and several other states, government leaders have mandated office closures for all but essential businesses. Even in areas without forced closings, many employees are working from home as employers do their part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing.
This “new normal” in the work environment requires supervisors and managers to think and act differently when it comes to supporting the needs of their employees, and ensuring that workers are productive and tasks remain on schedule. Here are some helpful tips to effectively manage a remote workforce.
The way we work may have changed, at least temporarily, but companies can keep remote employees engaged and business moving forward. By communicating early and often, adopting a positive and proactive mindset, and tapping into technology, employers can remain effective in the brave new world of work.
