Remote Team Management
– The New Normal

Are your team working remotely? COVID gave you no choice? Were you ready to manage the team remotely?

The Need for Remote Team Management

"Forget the ‘gig economy’ of contracting freelancers and outsourcing to virtual assistants.  We entered the ‘work from home’ economy when the COVID pandemic hit. Working from home was not a choice. It was a legal requirement. Now we have a new and uncertain prospects…is remote work the new normal?"
Ann (CEO)
Australia
  • Over 4.3 million people (32% of working Australians) have been ‘working from home’ (WFH) during the last few months since the COVID-19 pandemic.
United Kingdom
  • In April 2020, 46.6% of people in employment did some work at home in the UK
  • Of those, 86.0% did so because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
  • Of those, around one-third worked fewer hours than usual (34.4%), and around one-third worked more hours than usual (30.3%).
  • More than half of people living in London (57.2%) did some work at home.
United States
  • Forty-two percent of U.S. workers are now working from home full time, accounting for more than two-thirds of economic activity.
  • The U.S. is a working-from-home economy. Almost twice as many employees are working from home as at work.
  • Work-from-home employees now accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity.

Rising Mental Health Concerns

Your organisation is under threat if you cannot maintain a strong culture of resilience.

  • You are at risk of:
    • Compensation
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Absenteeism
    • Presenteeism
    • Retention
    • Change and transition

The New Normal

The new normal is very foreign. Your people are humans that had a routine that was disrupted instantly and permanently. Many have been working in isolation and under circumstances that are detrimental to mental health. We know there is a crisis coming. There was already a problem with traditional team thinking and practices. Most managers have never dealt with managing their entire business remotely.

Many are traditional operaters who believe that presence means presenteeism and productivity. The empowerment of trusted individuals to work some days from home was getting slow acceptance. There was the uprise of the freelancer. Talk of the Gig Economy. We were somewhat prepared. We have all stood together through the pandemic and COVID in the workplace…but can your organisation continue to cope? The short answer is likely no.
Currently, your staff are at high risk of suffering mental health issues.
  • Working from home
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Substance abuse
  • Family issues
  • Financial Concerns
  • Change and transition
  • Resistance
  • Restructuring
  • Job security

Appellon resolves the challenge of managing your with Team Connect.

  • Do teams that do not work together…work?
    Productivity: Can the organisation have confidence that their employees will invest the same time into their roles and responsibilities? Performance: Currently, 24% say they are equally productive working from home and in an office. Over 70% of remote employees claim they had higher productivity and efficiency. The share of working days spent at home is forecast to increase from 5 percent to 20 percent
  • Is it possible they work better?
    The short answer is yes. Behind teams are the systems that and technology that has evolved to the new normal. In 2020 we learnt #WFH is easy to say. Is here to stay. And is effective. From meetings in the boardroom to meetings from the bedroom. Thanks to a mix of media technologies that seemingly improved communication. Appellon can integrate with these and gel the results.
