As most of the country is working from home, there’s a lot of talk about how to have the most productive days at home. And thanks to thought leaders who’ve cracked their code on what working from home looks like for them, you can find lots of great advice out there about what to do before you leave your bedroom, when to wake-up, even when to put pants on.
But here’s the thing, for most business leaders and managers, working from home didn’t happen overnight. Preparation was key. They were able to instill confidence and trust and a routine into how their responsibilities operate, with an onramp to making it happen.
Now, that’s all out the window.
So WorkHound has applied what we know about working with dispersed workers, more than 30,000 across the U.S., and made the switch overnight to work from the safety of our homes in the wake of COVID-19. We’ll be sharing tips on what’s working for our team and how we’re continuing to maintain enthusiasm for the work we do.
There are entire books on how to do working from home well, so this is just a small glimpse at how your team can thrive from afar. Our hope is that this time helps you continue to build stronger relationships and that your team members are grateful for the respect your company has given for them and their family’s health and safety.
The world might feel upside down, but it’s only temporary and there will be life on the other side of this chaos. In the meantime, we’d love to know if you and your team have additional tips to add to this list. What has been the most helpful tool for you and your team during this time?
