It’s important to make sure everyone stays on the same page while working remotely during this uncertain time. Here are some communication tips:
1. Huddle up daily: BOTIM is great for virtual conference calls. Team members can list daily action items and any personal issues they’re anticipating.
2. Consider new tools: When you don’t have the benefit of leaning over the cubicle, tools like Slack provide a forum for real-time discussion. You can segment communications by category, too.
3. Set expectations: Should employees be online during specific hours? Are certain virtual meetings mandatory? Outline these expectations upfront in a document or companywide email.
