In this blog, we’ll look at the costs and limitations of remote work as well as strategies on how to overcome those limitations.
Difficult to Supervise Employees Directly overseeing telecommuters is simply not possible. Employers can watch their productivity output, ensure they’re online and available during their normal working hours, and call to check in with them, but won’t have the flexibility to right away check on their progress.
Risk of Loss in Productivity Work from home can be a challenge to employees who are not used to it. The challenges include difficulty to remain focused, family distractions and not having a decent workspace to work peacefully and efficiently.
Cyber Security Concerns Since work from home employees will need to access data belonging to their organization, extra precautions must be taken to ensure that they have adequate security measures in place. This includes remote access to your company’s network using a safe tool or establishing a virtual private network (VPN).
Missing Teamwork Experience Being isolated can have its own troubles. Employees can feel distant and not in tune with others in the office. This might cause lack of morale as an individual and also cause degradation of company culture, and loss of teamwork.
Lack of Resources Workers might need resources which can be difficult to be given to each individual. Be it printers or any network access devices, the physical devices pose a serious challenge for WFH.
One of the simplest solutions to the above issues is working from home with the help of document management software (DMS).
