Remote work is the new normal for many people. With the Covid-19 pandemic biting through our economies, individuals and companies have been forced to make unprecedented changes to safeguard their livelihoods and ensure that their businesses survive.
While other companies have resorted to minimizing company expenses by laying off their workers, reducing salaries up-to 50%, remote work presents a viable solution to working productively and collaborating with team members.
Startup Suite provides a platform that allows you to digitize and automate your business processes.
Our HR module allows remote approval of staff requests and tracking of staff attendance as well as monitoring staff productivity levels.
In addition to this, teams are able to collaborate on projects as well as assign tasks to each other and ensure delivery within set timelines. Consolidating your work in one platform has its advantages; something Startup Suite allows you to explore.
Your team is able to visualize company projects and feel part of the team. This visual representation of workflow allows each individual to assess their contribution to projects and ultimately the company.
Remote work brings with it, its own set of challenges. Home for a long time has been that safe place, where you unwind and leave work in the office.
However, with this unprecedented shift towards remote work, the challenge of creating a healthy work-life balance weighs in.
You may be spending more time in front of a screen, than you are spending taking care of yourself. Productivity is great, but 12 hours in front of your laptop is not healthy.
Learn how to create healthy boundaries with your work devices and find other things to indulge in, that are very different from your work routine. Take breaks to stretch or relax between your long work sessions. This will even rejuvenate you and keep your creative juices flowing.
Our time log feature can be useful in monitoring the hours you spend working on projects and help in planning your day to achieve that healthy balance between your work, and creating time for life.
Going forward, we will explore ways to help you stay productive in an environment set up to make you relax.
“When that Netflix series and your bed are calling,
and you know that voice is more compelling than the task to be done!
If you are like me,
Sleep is life!
But we need to overcome!”
Poem by me.
We will be exploring how to ignore your bed when it calls on the next blog
