Remote Work: Ensuring Collaboration for Maximized Productivity

Remote Work: Ensuring Collaboration for Maximized Productivity

April 3, 2020
As remote work becomes the new normal, maintaining productivity has transformed into one of the main organizational priorities. Employers are scrambling to come up with innovative ways to support this sudden switch to a remote work environment.
A major challenge in supporting a remote workforce has been avoiding systems overload so employees can rapidly access the needed content. After addressing this, challenges of communication and collaboration come next.

Collaboration Platforms are Key 

Individual work is rare nowadays. Your employees need to be able to communicate and collaborate to deliver outstanding work. Inefficient collaboration can be quite costly. It not only affects productivity, but it can negatively impact employee morale, engagement, and innovation.
That is why a collaboration platform is key to leveraging remote work. There are plenty of options out there, with Microsoft Teams being a more popular choice nowadays. Teams boasts around 40 million users and Microsoft is offering a free 6-month trial to support the switch to remote work.
Utilizing Microsoft Teams within your organization, can help improve both, corporate and departmental communication. To reap these benefits and quickly deploy it within your organization, our team at Prosperoware has published a guide to rapid deployment of Microsoft Teams. It helps organizations to deploy and start using this collaboration platform only within days.
Even after deployment, organizations need to carefully structure their collaboration platforms around best practices to maximize productivity and avoid common mishaps. It is also imperative for organizations to marry rapid deployment with governance and ensure that in the process of supporting remote work, they do not engage in potential negligence of privacy laws and regulations.
