Microsoft Teams announced a free of charge subscription at the start of the pandemic and that offer is going to come to an end in September. Businesses now need to think about installing a more permanent remote working solution for in and out of the office.
Managing a remote working team is different from having an office full of staff, but it can be just as or even more efficient. By using best practices, you can get the most from your team and promote a flexible hybrid working setup within your business.
This post shows best practices for remote working.
MANAGING A REMOTE TEAM
Follow these guidelines to successfully manage a remote workforce.
BEST PRACTICES FOR VIDEO/CONFERENCE CALLS
Video calls and web-meetings will be invaluable in business. They provide as close to face-to-face interaction as possible without being physically present. Your meetings can still establish more personal and trusting relationships, as well as a better understanding of conversations. They will also help to reduce decision-making time.
These points will ensure your video call or web meeting goes smoothly.

BEST PRACTICE FOR SWITCHING TO HYBRID WORKING SET-UP
Utilising technology and collaboration tools will enable a smooth switch to a remote or office user and there are many benefits. For example, where does your business phone number redirect to, if there is no-one in the office? Can team members use any device to work from if they're away from the office? Perhaps it's time to adapt to a hybrid remote working set-up with these best practice solutions.
