Implement remote work with Ucloudstore in 5 easy steps
1. Determine what type of telecommuting you want to implement
As we have already mentioned, teleworking can be carried out in many ways. The most important thing is to decide what criteria your business will follow so that your employees can carry it out. For example:
- All employees can carry out 30 days of teleworking per year, being able to choose which ones they prefer.
- On Fridays, all workers will telecommute.
- Those workers who require it due to personal needs, can carry out half of their working day by telecommuting.
- All employees who live more than x kilometers from the office will work remotely indefinitely.
2. Set the rules
Closely related to the previous point, once you have determined some criteria to carry out teleworking for your company , establish action protocols so that all employees are clear about them. It is very important to avoid jeopardizing the confidentiality of your business. To do this, from UcloudStore we recommend that you also have tools that help you have control over the devices and applications that are used. For example, Google has in its application licenses and security for work , a panel for the administrator .
3. Set some goals
Another very relevant aspect to carry out of the implementation of teleworking is to set clear objectives for your team. It is essential that this has clear and easy to quantify goals , so that beyond the time spent in front of the screen, the business objectives are met . To do this you can use collaborative tools to organize tasks such as those provided by the Asana software . A brilliant web and mobile application designed for the improvement and optimization of the communication and collaboration of our team.
4. Provide the necessary tools and devices
In addition, it is essential to think that workers will need devices and tools that allow them to work from anywhere , a fact that will allow them to collaborate with the entire team without jeopardizing the security of the business.
First of all, it is very important to have cloud-based tools . This is due to the fact that in order to telework, employees have to be able to access the company's files and tools without being in the office in person. For this you have cloud storage options such as Google Drive or Dropbox. In the case of Google Drive , it comes with G-Suite , with a choice of storage space from 30 GB to unlimited, along with other collaborative cloud applications . We explain more here .
On the other hand, you will need secure devices that also allow them to work both from home and from the office: a laptop . Any model can be suitable, although there are devices designed to improve collaborative work in the cloud. This is the case with Chromebooks , Google's laptops. Integrated with G-Suite, they allow you to access your desktop from any Chromebook computer. This means that if they don't have their own Chrome computer for some reason, they can access their profile and everything they have saved from any other Chromebook computer .
5. Promote communication
Finally, one of the most important aspects for teleworking is not to lose communication with your team. For this reason, it is essential to have devices and applications to be able to proceed to schedule meetings and make video calls . These meetings are like those that take place in real life but through videoconference programs .
In this case, we recommend Google applications such as Hangouts or Skype (we explain the differences here ) and having video conferencing systems and devices in your office such as Hangouts Meet Hardware.
