Here’s a few tips to ensure your teams stay productive and motivated using the beauty of mobile technology.
Host virtual meetings
Many remote teams maintain regular communication through video calls, instant messaging, email and web conferencing. When the whole team is working, a voice or video conferencing call can go a long way to encourage group collaboration. If you a good business mobile phone contract with handsets for everyone then they can use communication and collaboration tools like Google Hangouts, Slack and Trello wherever they may be.
Keep the lines of communication open.
Remote employees, especially those who work non-traditional hours sometimes feel that their team isn’t around when they are, and vice versa. Knowing that they can reach out to their colleagues and stay in touch through digital communication helps virtual workers feel more connected.
“Online communities, social collaboration software and chat clients help bring remote employees inside the cultural conversation,” said Tony Ventrice, senior product manager at Whil.
