Remote Work Adaptations and Tools 

Over the past few years, many businesses have shifted to working remotely or introducing hybrid models for their employees. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of remote working, as many businesses had no other choice if they wanted to continue operating. This experience demonstrated the viability of remote working for many people.

Thus, remote working is becoming more prevalent for a number of reasons, such as changes in work culture, technological advancements and external factors such as cost/time savings for employees.

There are many factors to consider when thinking about offering the option to work remotely, such as communication challenges, team collaboration and work-life balance, along with including the adaptations and tools your employees might need to work remotely efficiently.

Working remotely includes working from home, a co-working space or really, any location that has space to work with internet access. Tools that help to facilitate this style of working include:

Video/Messaging Platforms

Communication is key for any teams working remotely. Having the option to use instant messaging or video calls helps you to connect with your team quickly and with ease. There are different options for this, such as Microsoft Teams or Slack.

File Storage/Sharing Platforms

Cloud storage is one way to easily share large files amongst the team, utilising tools such as Google Drive, SharePoint or Dropbox. These platforms are also useful for sharing work with clients.

Project Management Tools

With bigger teams, it can be easy to lose track of who’s doing what, and when they’re doing it. This is especially true when the team is working in separate locations. There are a number of project management platforms available, such as Trello, Asana and Monday. These allow you to note down tasks, assign them to people and add notes, dates and any other relevant information.

Here’s a list with more tools for remote working.
