We need not discuss how the last year has had a massive impact on your business and what measures you likely put in place to secure your survival – you know that story only too well. Of course, it’s true to say that something as increasingly turbulent as the last year will have its effects, some of them bad, and perhaps a few of them good.
For those businesses who have survived, lessons have been learned from the experience. This begs the question of what practices we should keep after life returns to normal, and how we can begin to make use of a market so radically changed by the norms that have shifted.
One of these considerations is of course that of remote work, and its impact on industries far and wide. In fact, understanding this can help us more readily focus on solutions and practices that work from now into the future, what that means, and how we might retain the benefits of these conveniences from now on. Remote work is clearly here to stay in some capacity – let’s try and make the most of it.
Remote Event Planning & Delivery
Remote event planning and delivery is a natural follow up to how events have been scheduled in the past year. That said, using an event registration website, even public events such as press releases, discussions, online keynotes and more can be held and attended. This means that no matter what your strategy is, you always have a remote alternative that can be used either for convenience, to expand your online reach in an online world, or as a backup you may wish to utilize when necessary.
Communication tools are worth keeping around, as is quite clear, but especially in the hyper-accessible format, we have come to expect. For instance, renewing our consolidation of team communications in apps like Slack, or making sure that remote software is installed to ensure virtual meetings can take place at short notice can really help when trying to get back on your feet, and even when trying to be more productive from now into the future. Other firms will surely not alleviate the conveniences they have been grateful to use over the last year – why should you feel obliged to?
It’s important to consider how investing in our staff can help them be the best employees they can be. Investing in granting them devices with pre-installed security software and workflow utilities can ensure everyone is on the same page, or at least offering a support scheme to help every staff member get up to standard when working from home can prevent issues like poor webcam or microphone quality in group meetings, and so on. Remember, if you’re going to remote work, it’s best to do so in a manner that speaks to the quality and values serving as the backdrop of your staff management.
With this advice, we hope you can make the most of remote work, as it does seem like its here to stay.
