New Work From Home Policies to Keep Teams Engaged with Nicholas Beugg

Miami, Florida, Sept. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As work from home arrangements become the norm for workplaces around the globe, employers and their workers alike are slowly adjusting to the different strategies that can help them stay productive even as they work outside of the office. Nicholas Beugg has been running an international company with remote workers, including engineers and technicians for years. He has managed to keep his virtual teams working effectively together despite being separated by distance. Beugg gives his insights to MarketNow on how to keep remote teams productive, incentivized, and engaged, especially for managers and company leaders who want a successful transition to virtual work.
A culture of accountability A culture of accountability can make or break any company especially one with remote workers. The distance can lead managers to want to micromanage each worker but this can be counterproductive and can lead to wasted manpower. Lack of accountability can be destructive as well since workers cannot be left to meet their own deadlines and work whenever they like. To achieve the right balance, Nicholas recommends using apps and programs that can help employees keep track of their productivity and deliver on time. For example, time-tracking programs can be used by employees to log on and off work. The same apps can be used by managers to see how long an employee has worked. Apps like Trello allow teams to layout ideas onto a digital whiteboard, track progress in real-time, and allow team members to see how projects are progressing, which can help boost productivity while maintaining accountability. Teamwork and camaraderie Fostering an atmosphere of teamwork and camaraderie can be useful in keeping team members engaged and committed to the work. Encouraging good relationships, fostering camaraderie can also help maintain stability and accountability. Nicholas Beugg's company has done this by taking teams out on yearly get-togethers, where team members can enjoy each other's company outside of work and get to know each other better. Beugg explains that activities like these help provide a sense of belonging to a family, which in turn helps develop a sense of commitment to the team and its work. While this can be difficult to do in person at this time, managers and team leads can do the next best thing and set times for virtual team building activities. Virtual get-togethers and online socials can serve as places where employees can get to know each other and engage in settings that do not involve work.
