How to monitor wellbeing and productivity in remote workforces
Before the coronavirus outbreak, working from home was a luxury for most companies, an opportunity to give your employees some flexibility in their working lives. A third of US companies allowed employees to work from home at least once a week, using cloud-based applications, video conferencing software and collaborative platforms to get the job done from a distance.
In the radically different landscape of COVID-19, employers have no choice but to allow their employees to work from home, full-time. Managing a remote team comes with its own set of challenges, specifically, monitoring the productivity and wellbeing of a workforce displaced over a great distance.
Research from Veriato reveals the top reasons why managers dislike a remote working set up:
- 49% of managers dislike the ability to be able to talk face-to-face with their teams
- 22% of managers dislike the lack of accountability
- 26% dislike the reduced levels of focus among remote workers
- 22% believe their workforces are slacking off
