After fourteen months of work from home, thanks to a global pandemic, the way we work has drastically changed.
The first few months had a few obstacles like teaching our youngsters while simultaneously learning an entirely new routine. However, now many people are finding that they absolutely love working from home.
And one in four workers are wanting to continue working at home indefinitely.
If you’re considering switching your team to a fully remote working setup, you should carefully consider the pros and cons.
Some teams find themselves more productive, having a better work-life balance, happier without commute times, and proud of a lower carbon footprint.
They enjoy the ability to live and travel wherever they want as an office doesn’t bind them. Companies can also save much money without the cost of renting a space.
Some teams find it’s challenging to stay motivated, have communication gaps, and struggle with the lack of socialising in the office.
Some managers and team leaders find it challenging to manage and oversee their teams effectively.
However, many of these cons can be solved with the features of Office 365.
Office 365 is entirely web-based, so your team can access their virtual working space at any time as long as they’re connected to the internet. The interface allows for video calls, screen sharing, and screen control for effective team meetings.
Working on projects doesn’t have to end just because you’re not in the office. Office 365 allows for multiple users to work on documents together in real-time. Whether you’re in sunny Suffolk, sunny Sevilla, or sunny Santorini, your team can continue collaborating.
Emailing back and forth to gain access to specific files can be draining regardless of whether you’re working remotely or in the office. Instead, teams can organise and collaborate with documents on a cloud-based system. So, whether they’re working at 3 AM or 3 PM, they can get the task done without tracking down what they need.
With an effective project management interface, teams can create, allocate, and complete tasks, all while team managers can check in on capacity and deadlines.
Whether you’re considering fully remote teams or partially remote teams, incorporating Office 365 into your systems will completely reshape how your team works together and how your managers lead their teams.
Office 365 will support your team whether they’re travelling full time or in the office, whether they’re in this time zone or twelve hours behind, or whether they love working from home or are eager to socialise in the office once more.
Allow your employees to work from anywhere, speak to us now for support with making the switch to Microsoft Office 365.
