The Work done by employees from home or any other place is actually beneficial for clients and employees as well. You can say that remote employees can be very productive for the team. Well, the major benefits of working remotely are fewer meetings means your team member has more time, for focusing on meaning full and important project works. Its also allows to generate higher autonomy and trust which automatically increased the motivation and productivity.
Having more flexibility creates opportunity for a more balanced life. Employees have days when they spend 12 hours, focused on super productivity and other days checked out some of the primary tasks on the lists and then spend a day with the work of their own personnel, and spending time with friends.
Employee good health is very important. Therefore, employees working remotely can take breaks and exercise between clients meetings to focus on work time. Sometimes, employees can take a run to refresh the mind to focus more on work.
The most beneficial approach for remote employees is that they can work from one place to another. And this flexibility they can use regularly when working remotely. The office will not allow them to be flexible from one place to another. Remote employees have no geographic approach to engaging the team, meaning they also have no geographic boundaries for clients.
Promote collaboration between remote employees departments for good competition
There is no doubt that competition within the team inspires people to perform to the best of their ability, but it also causes people to lose sight of the organisation's common goal. When people work with a mindset of getting maximum benefits and to become a center of attraction, they start working individually instead of working together. This ultimately affects the overall performance of the team.
As Andrew Carneige puts it, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.” We must therefore encourage the team as a leader/manager to work together with mutual respect for each other.
The team members must value each other and always, think about whether it will be fruitful for the company before taking any action. We don't say it's wrong to work for individual growth, but it shouldn't affect the team.
The manager must respect both performers and non-performers and strive to inculcate an atmosphere where team members encourage each other to succeed with the same enthusiasm and do not feel threatened. The manager must also ensure that the team maintains balance by providing positive feedback to help each employee feel a sense of achievement and receive public recognition.
To conclude, I would like to say that healthy competition would help you to foster a positive working environment and help average performers get out of their shell. They will try to be more creative, work harder and would ultimately work towards the organisation's common goals.
Recommendations and -suggestions Round Up
1. The manager must "Blaze a Trail" to encourage a positive and healthy working environment as energy always flows from the top.
2.Employees must be treated well and must have the freedom to express themselves and must function in a positive. open and transparent management system.
3. Employee centric organisations always have better retention rates. so we must have flexible and employee- friendly practices.
4.Working towards the skill enhancement of the workforce by organizing training and engagement programs to promote fun at the workplace.
To bring it all together, you should try to divvy up the avenues of how the strategies, traditional and modern approaches can work together co create a healthy working environment and how it can serve to better engage the workforce.
Creating a healthy work environment is not hand. instituting improvements in the organisational process requires a little functionality. We need to work with the vision to create a large corporate culture that keeps ever one happy and encourage employees to work cohesively and to value organisational ends.
