1. Telecommuting versus working from home
First of all, it is important to know what exactly teleworking is and what the differences are with regular working from home. The main difference is that working from home can really only be done from home. When an employee works from home, this entails legal obligations for the employer. For example, you must ensure a workplace that complies with the Working Conditions Decree. In principle, however, you can telecommute from any location other than the office. When an employee performs VDU work from another location, for example on the road, at home or at an external workplace, this is called teleworking.
2. Clear division of tasks and planning
During Covid-19 it became clear that when we suddenly cannot work from the office, one organization is better equipped for teleworking than another. Without a clear division of tasks and plans, teleworking turns out to be extremely difficult. In order to ensure that everyone can also be productive remotely, it is therefore crucial to have a clear (project) planning, including realistic goals and a clear division of tasks. To ensure that goals are also achieved remotely, it helps to work with a good planning program. With our all-in-one business software, you can create a comprehensive planning in an instant, in which every employee has his own to-do list. This also prevents employees from working too long and losing sight of the boundary between work and private life due to teleworking.
3. Good communication lines
Also indispensable during teleworking: handy and effective communication lines. Make sure that all employees everywhere have a good connection with the Cloud and can be in constant contact with each other. For example, our internal chat functionality can be a very useful way to keep the lines short, even when all employees are in a different location.
4. Insight into projects
Recently, managers and other supervisors were often unable to work from the office. Project management software is indispensable to keep an overview and to be able to monitor the progress of projects. Thanks to our smart project management tool, you always have full control of every step, even while teleworking.
5. Time registration
Finally, it has turned out that, especially when many employees are forced to work from another location, proper time registration is indispensable. Time registration software not only gives you the opportunity to monitor the productivity and commitment of your employees, it also says everything about the profitability of the projects. So invest in our effective project management software with time registration module. An investment that will quickly pay for itself, especially during teleworking.
