From a time when less than 5% of USA employees were working remotely to now when there are millions of people across the globe who have been confined to be locked down and work in a remote condition, the workspace that we once knew has been shifted dramatically.
While the gig economy workers and freelancers are already well acquainted with the idea of remote work setup, there have been teams that are used to working in close collaboration with each other ever since their job role inception.
So how are they managing the shift? Well the answer to this lies in 'Technology Adoption'.
Through the inclusion of technologies, the modern day workforce has been able to skim through the otherwise seemingly impossible shift.
Here are some of those technologies that have helped our team at Ark Newtech and the other industries in general.
This one is a no brainer. In order for a company and the teams operating inside it to be connected through and through, it is important that they have virtual collaboration tools in place. It is one of the main reasons we saw a sudden shift in the rise of apps like Zoom and Skype ever since the pandemic began.
The next in our list of must-have technologies for remote work is cloud computing. Making information available to a distributed team which has nothing but internet connecting them is something that can only be achieved through cloud computing technology.
Project management if not as important in a traditional workspace setup becomes all the more important in a remote work profile. It makes it possible for everyone in the team to be completely transparent and accountable in terms of work status.
Some of the project management tools that we use at Ark Newtech includes - Jira, Basecamp, and Scoro etc.
Now that we have looked into the different technologies that make it easier to ace remote work setup, the next step would be to get all your employees on board so that there is minimal friction amongst teams, which might hamper your project status.
