Create A Remote Working Community

Even though working remotely has become a business trend, it still fails to provide satisfying levels of belonging and social engagement to employed teams and self-employed professionals. Ultimately, the main issue lies in the popular understanding of remote working options. Most people tend to image a solitary home office setting in which they stay in complete isolation from the external world. In reality, working remotely doesn’t have to encourage loneliness. On the contrary, you can create for yourself, or for your team, a remote community to provide support, a sense of belonging, and human connection throughout their journey.

Remote doesn’t mean isolated

The first lesson you need to learn when it comes to establishing a remote business economy is that remote is not a synonym for ermite. On the contrary, being outside of an office environment doesn’t mean that you have to be on your own. Even though you’ll find plenty of popular home office decor tips and strategies, it’s crucial to understand that quality work needs an effective workplace. As a result, the coworking scene has been developing integrated and attractive solutions to provide a work environment to professionals who would, otherwise, be isolated. A coworking space offers not only contact to same-minded professionals, but it also ensures that you can get access to a selection of amenities that are essential for your job.

Remote means available at a click

As a rule of the thumb, remote professionals need to rely on effective cloud solutions that give them access to everything they need to perform their everyday tasks. Whether you’re working a report for a client or need to check the next project in the pipeline, making remote possible means that professionals only need a secured Internet connection to carry on with their work. If your business is considering the move towards an out-of-office environment, you need to start the journey with the installation of safe, intuitive and reliable cloud computing services for your team – or yourself if you’re self-employed.

Remote workers can be on friendly terms

The Internet has long proven that you don’t need to meet people physically to be able to interact and create relationships. Instagram is renowned for organising meetup events where people who have exchanged online can finally meet face-to-face, for instance. Consequently, there is no reason why remote workers couldn’t be part of the team, even if they don’t see their colleagues every day. Powerful collaborative tools such as video conferencing and professional team appreciation let employees connect, engage and interact throughout the day. You need to make room for virtual socialisation too!

Remote health team on call

Last, but not least, despite advanced measures to enhance the standards of the remote working life, it’s not uncommon for employees to experience loneliness, isolation and sadness when they are separated from a physical team. Consequently, your remote workers need to be registered with mental health services that can provide support on the go. You can find consultant services that are available remotely, via chat, call or even video conference for those who need help.  

While remote working arrangements are becoming popular, businesses fail to offer sufficient community-building solutions to help remote employees to ease into their position. Failure to make out-of-office staff feel part of the company doesn’t only affect their well-being, but it also decreases their performance and productivity.
