In the Age of Covid-19 Workers and Managers Come Together
The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down many businesses and it is thought that about 88% of workers (Meister, 2020) work from home. Microsoft has prepared a Guide to Working from Home (http://www.aka.ms/WFHguide-Customer).
This is what the manual suggests with respect to Remote Workers and Managers of Remote Workers:
For Remote Workers:
Focus on well-being,eat well, exercise,etc.
Do video calls so you establish an emotional connection between yourself and those you call.
Set up your virtual workplaces in a comfortable place at home.
Be inclusive when conducting meetings-encourage feedback and continuity from meeting to meeting.
For Managers of Remote Workers:
Be transparent about workload and projects-give feedback-build trust.
Communicate each day with your remote workers
Offer online training to your colleagues
Find a time to chat with your colleagues about non-work related issues- so your colleagues won't feel isolated.
Invest company funds on building the technological background of your colleagues.
The future of our jobs in ensuring the well-being of our workers.
