Back to the Home Office: Support Your Remote Employees During Flu and COVID Season

If the past few years have proven anything, it’s that remote work isn’t a passing trend. While the initial transition was driven largely by COVID-19, a remote or hybrid working model is only projected to grow in 2023

That shift toward a remote workforce is demanding new technology — tools that can keep employees connected, productive, and engaged. Whether implementing a hybrid work model or preparing for the upcoming flu and COVID season, it’s time to develop a plan for long-term remote success. 

The good news is that solutions already exist to help remote workers do their best work. Below are some of the top tools to support teams working out of the office — and how they unlock the full potential of remote work. 

Video Conferencing Tools  

Without in-person meetings, getting the whole team together — and on the same page — can be a challenge. That’s where video conferencing software can offer a solution. 

Using a reliable video conferencing program like Zoom, Skype, or Google Hangouts, remote employees can stay engaged in the meeting room and participate in discussions as if they were in the room. 

Some of these video tools can record meetings, making it easier to share information with those who can’t attend. Beyond team meetings, the software can be used for more engaging training sessions, client conversations, and team bonding exercises.

Content Management (ECM) Software 

When employees aren’t in the same physical location, it’s more important than ever to have a content management (ECM) tool. With the right management software, all documents — from spreadsheets to contracts — can be stored in one secure location. 

Here are some of the key benefits of implementing an ECM solution: 

  • Simplifies the task of finding and retrieving a large number of documents 
  • Eliminates the need for paper, streamlining the workflow and lowering the risk of disease transmission 
  • Strengthens privacy and security by storing sensitive information in a secure place
  • Creates a digital repository where employees can access and work jointly on projects, increasing cross-department collaboration

Mobile Access Solutions 

Another way to keep things running smoothly away from the office is a mobile access solution. This software allows teams to seamlessly access their documents and manage daily tasks while on the go. Essentially, it puts everything needed to make informed business decisions in the palm of an employee’s hand. 

The right mobile access solution can make business processes more time efficient, cutting costs in the long run. It can also save information with or without Wi-Fi, allowing employees to work even without a connection.

Support Teams From Anywhere With an ECM Solution

As the world adjusts to the new normal in 2022, now is the best time to embrace remote work. With a hybrid or fully remote workplace, teams can stay connected and efficient without needing to share the same space. 

The right technology enables employees to work from anywhere with zero disruptions to their regular work schedules. Embracing these tools won’t just improve efficiency — it can build greater workplace resilience to help businesses prepare for an uncertain future. 

A content management (ECM) system can enable a seamless transition to remote work — even enhancing workflow to help teams run better than ever before. To explore the potential of a powerful ECM solution, take a look at Worldview’s top success stories and schedule a demo today
