Remote Work Preparations
As COVID-19 (commonly known as Coronavirus) is spreading across the globe, you have surely seen headlines of companies asking (or requiring!) their employees to work remotely from home.
It’s happening all over the globe – Shell has all its Singapore-based staff staying home, and Twitter is strongly encouraging the same for all its employees!
You’ve also likely seen headlines about how we’re entering a grand work-from-home experiment. Companies like Cisco, Zoom, and Microsoft are touting their collaboration tools to keep your business moving, even while your employees might be working away from their physical offices.
Benefits & Growth
And it’s true – we live in a time where a variety of cutting-edge collaboration platforms are available on the market and all with well-documented benefits to adopting them in your workforce:
Benefits of utilizing virtual collaboration:
- Cost Savings
- Better engagement
- More agile collaboration
- Keeping Everyone Safe
Responding to Change
However, it is underappreciated how hard driving adoption to utilize those collaboration tools can be. We, as humans, don’t always respond well to change…as evident by the response to COVID-19.
For folks who are accustomed to heading into the office every day and doing things the way they’ve always been done in the past, working remotely with a brand-new suite of software can be an abrupt and difficult change! Even if it isn’t a brand-new software, most employees will have a difficult time adjusting without adding the “unused” collaboration tools to the mix.
At the end of the day, you can deploy the shiniest new collaboration tools, but if your end users aren’t adopting them, it’s hard to realize the return on your investment or even keep your company’s train moving forward.
