Stegmeier Consulting’s Insight…
A common concern amongst organizations that are focused on increasing opportunities for remote workers is how will employees be able to effectively communicate and collaborate with off-site individuals. Often times these employees can be a great distance from the home office or from one another. Fortunately, technology has given us the ability to bring everyone closer, at least in a virtual sense.
This article discusses several tools that can make working on or managing a remote team easier and more convenient for all involved. Applications to help everyone keep track of time zones ensures meetings can take place or communications can be sent at optimal points throughout a day. Project management programs can give a remote team an instant snapshot of where everyone stands on a job. And of course, video chat capabilities provide the sense of sitting at the same table as a coworker as opposed to miles away.
