In a physical office, delegating responsibilities and sharing company rules, and having face-to-face meetings, is easier than in a virtual office setup.
You also need to establish an organizational culture for a virtual team.
Here are the areas you should pay particular attention to:
A. Set Working Hours
In a virtual company, employees need to be provided with a structure as you would do in a regular office.
That’s why it’s essential to implement virtual office hours.
This way, employees know when they are supposed to be working and won’t be tempted to work more or fewer hours than they should. Even if you have employees across time zones, set some standard hours when everyone should be available.
Time and productivity management tools like RAYAFEEL can help ensure that your team members are working a certain amount of hours each day so that they can enjoy an excellent work-life balance.
B. Ensure Employees Are Clear About Their Duties
In an environment where each employee is responsible for themselves, it’s crucial to assign clear responsibilities.
When onboarding new team members, iron out all the details regarding the company policies, goals, and duties.
Managers should give each team member detailed instructions from the start, including how to use the software tools provided and how to communicate effectively. They also need a reliable system for distributing and evaluating work.
Encourage your employees to ask questions and adopt collaboration software such as Tandem.
C. Look for Team Building Opportunities
Encouraging team bonding is usually more challenging in a virtual office.
It’s common for a remote employee to feel a lack of connection to their co-workers and the company they work for. This can impact their morale and productivity.
Building relationships in a virtual office isn’t impossible if you look for opportunities to connect with your team.
For example, virtual games can help create that camaraderie and support system that the remote worker often lacks.
