Adepteq Top Tips for effective remote work whilst staying connected

Getting Started

Set up your workspace
Find a space in your home where you can concentrate. Personalize your settings with a picture of your own in Microsoft Teams to keep teammates focused.

Communicate, communicate, communicate
Your rhythm with online work from home might look different than it does in the office. For example, you may be balancing work and childcare at the same time.

Maintain healthy boundaries
Without the normal workday signals, like a commute, it can be harder to unplug. Make sure to take breaks, stay hydrated, and give yourself opportunities to “clock out” from remote work at the end of the day. 

Running Meetings

Embrace online meetings
Make sure all meetings include an online “join” option so that team members can join from wherever they are working. 

Be mindful and inclusive

A crowded conference call can make it difficult for people to share their opinions. Pause frequently to allow time for questions and remind attendees that they can use the chat window to share their thoughts.

Record your meetings
When you start a meeting, hit “record”. Team members who aren’t able to join can watch later or search the automatically generated transcript for important information.

Staying Connected

Make up for missing hallway talk
The quick chat at the water cooler is what many people miss the most when working remotely. Instead, be deliberate about and connecting with your coworkers. 

Bring the team together
Working remotely can feel a bit isolating. It’s important to create opportunities for the whole team to virtually get together.

Have fun
Use Teams to encourage fun activities and challenges to maintain morale.
