To assist your organisation in managing the transition to a virtual work environment, Alight’s commercial lead, Matt Lawrence, shares his best practices around managing your organisation remotely with the right tools for a seamless employee experience.
The current pandemic has triggered a massive push for many people to work from home. For organisations that have kept up with the rapid evolution of technology, this quick pivot to a new reality of remote operations was likely smooth enough to allow for regular business operations to proceed.
However, organisations not technologically prepared for the sudden shift to a remote setting found themselves scrambling for work-from-home guidance to pass to their employees. Organisations must be prepared to effectively make the change from an office-based role to working remotely on short notice to survive in today’s climate. A successful transition from the office to the home office is dependent on leveraging technology to manage employee productivity and workload, supporting colleagues and ensuring personal wellbeing.
Working in a remote setting is a key part of Alight’s culture. While we have been working to maximise our colleagues’ ability to work from home, many of our colleagues, including the Alight teams here in Europe, have always been home-based. And while working from home is new to some of our colleagues, it is business as usual as we continue to successfully deliver for our clients.
As a seasoned veteran managing virtual teams, below are some of my top tips for ensuring that the virtual workplace is as productive and enriching as possible for you and your organisation:
I hope that these suggestions curated from my years of working remotely will help your own situation become a positive experience despite the current circumstances. If you’d like to learn more about our virtual working model, you can find out more here.
