The multiple benefits of remote working are becoming more and more apparent as people continue the search for a much better work-life balance. With the increase of more and more real-time technology taking over our daily lives, both employers and employees have discovered some aspects of their jobs that don’t require their physical appearance in the office. Amidst the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, workers are finding better ways to work from home, but how can you be the best at ensuring network security for your employees while also getting your work done promptly? Read on to learn how to work remote productively.
The Proper Equipment
To ensure cyber and network security, as well as productivity from all of your remote workers, you need the proper equipment. Some of the equipment you’ll need to work remote are:
- Computer or laptop
- Reliable internet access
- Access to corporate emails
- A work phone
- Secure and remote access to your company’s internal network
There’s plenty of innovations in technology that will make working remote much more manageable, so it is worth regularly researching what’s out there to aid you. Ensuring you’re connected to your work’s intranet that is protected from cybercriminals during these uncertain times is essential.
Designate Some Space for Work
As much as you’d like to wake up and work from the comfort of your bed, it will not be the most productive way for you to get work done. This doesn’t mean you have to go and create an exact office space with furniture, chairs, and desks. Just have a spot that can be used solely for work purposes so you can focus on your work more efficiently. Make the spot comfortable for yourself.
When you’re working remotely, what you’re required to do can be lost in text, and things might not be as clear as if you were discussing an assignment or project in person, which then means more effort needs to be placed on communications. Video conferencing and talking on the phone is a helpful way of conveying tone of voice and body language, which are both essential to communication. Just make sure your network security is top-notch, so nothing interrupts your video conferences.
Despite how easy it is to get distracted working from home, take some breaks to help boost your productivity.
