By CIOReview | Friday, April 30, 2021

Microsoft Team allows businesses to work remotely and helps to stay connected with colleagues both professionally and emotionally.

FREMONT, CA: Employers worldwide are embracing the fact that they no longer need to be physically present in the workplace to do the jobs. It requires a change in the way people work and in the working atmosphere as a whole. Here is how to use Microsoft Teams to motivate remote work.

Managing a company remotely

If more businesses are forced to work remotely, the issue of how to do so more successfully without sacrificing efficiency and revenue emerges.

When working from home, there could be questions about employee efficiency and teamwork effectiveness. According to research, remote employees are performing better than the employees who are working from the office. There can be many reasons for remote employees to increase their productivity while working remotely. 

Here is how Microsoft Teams can help to inspire remote work and assist the remote teams in becoming more productive. To do so, they will need the right remote work culture and digital solution. Teams will also be there to assist them.

How Microsoft Teams facilitates remote working

1.Maintain work-life balance

If employees want to remain productive when working remotely, they can avoid interruptions. They should also avoid bringing personal life into the workplace. Here's how to go about it.

Notifications

They can receive several alerts, texts, emails, and other forms of communication that will cause them to lose focus on the work. They can set up alerts in the Microsoft Teams mobile app, which will help them remain focused on the project and avoid being interrupted at specific times and by particular people.

Wellbeing

Microsoft Teams will soon add information into wellbeing and efficiency. It aims to help better understand the working styles and develop working patterns.

2.Organize and coordinate work with the team

The managers and the team members will likely collaborate on a variety of projects. Given that they work remotely and don't have the luxury of consulting each other every 5 minutes, they need to adequately organize their work and ensure that everyone is up to date on the work they have completed.

Structure with guidelines

It is better to develop a set of guidelines and share them with remote teams in Microsoft Teams to ensure that everyone in the organization knows the rules of remote working and its expectations.

Channels

Channels are a perfect way to organize interactions with the team. Create channels for all of the team's subjects and upload the messages to those channels. It will make it easier for everyone on the team to find the information they require.
