One of the biggest challenges with managing remote employees is helping them balance and prioritize their workloads. Certainly, you don’t want people to be slacking off at work, but on the flip side if employees are working too much, they run the risk of burning out and becoming much less effective in their roles. As studies show, working over 50 hours a week actually decreases employee productivity and output, while increasing employee absenteeism and turnover.
So, first things first: make sure you are supporting your remote employees by implementing a time and attendance tool such as ISGUS’ Time & Attendance system. Thanks to the advancements made in cloud and mobile technologies, the process can be simple and easy.
The NEW NORMAL means many changes. So it is logical that many companies still haven’t figured out how to cultivate an inclusive work environment for its remote workers. Despite the rising numbers of telecommuting and remote employees, turnover remains high: today’s average workers only stick with their employers for about four years. Luckily, cloud and mobile-based technologies make it easy for businesses to change their policies and culture to better manage and engage employees. By implementing the right blend of workforce management, you can make your business distinct among others, so that remote employees feel connected and loyal to your organization.
