    What are the critical challenges in remote working?


    New sources of cyber-risk

    Potential security gaps have been multiplied by the number of employees working from home. Remote workers can be an unforeseen and uncontrolled vulnerability, especially when a very high percentage of the workforce is involved.

    Confidentiality

    Something as simple as locking a computer when taking a break will prevent strategic plans, personal databases or profit and loss statements from being seen by third parties living under the same roof, thus breaching important employee confidentiality agreements with the company, and the company with stakeholders.

    Home discipline and routines

    Human Resources departments should make an effort to care for the health of employees, and this includes recommendations on how to disconnect from work. There is already a lot of research linking remote working to depression, loneliness and anxiety.

    New platforms, new communication

    In some cases, we’re blind to each other’s stress and we can be annoying. With so many messages, it can be easy for things to be missed or misunderstood. Contextualizing and getting to the point are two ingredients of effective communication via chat or email.

    Project and delivery management

    There are many task management platforms and methods to organize to more effectively meet deadlines. Organizing a production and delivery schedule and encouraging proper time management are the best ways to maintain efficiency levels.

    Excesses and defects

    There are remote workers who won’t leave their seats until the job is done. There are others for whom the bark of a neighbor’s dog or a roommate’s noise will distract them. There are solutions for everyone.

    Get all the advantages of remote working

    Increase confidence

    Remote workers will feel the confidence that is placed in them to carry out their work without “Big Brother” watching them. This means that, in the absence of a fear-based culture, employees will be accountable to each other, not to management.

    Increase loyalty

    It increases employee happiness and loyalty to the company. Creativity, innovation and out-of-the-box thinking are not possible without people who are satisfied with their life and work.

    Increase performance

    Studies show that employee performance increases when working from home by 13% and breaks and sick leave are reduced. These improvements could translate into a reduction in turnover of as much as 25% when compared to companies who do not offer remote working, total productivity improvements of up to 20% and potential savings of thousands of dollars per employee.

    Be ready for what's next

    The advantage of being prepared for what is coming: new generations understand the possibility of remote working as a ‘must’. That’s why recent studies say that, since 83% of millennials confess to being ‘burned out’ by their current job, 73% of departments will have people working from home by 2028. The current system will be rethought and improved as millennials move up the hierarchal ladder.
