3 ways to effectively communicate with your remote team

3 ways to effectively communicate with your remote team

With so many of us working from home amid the COVID-19 crisis, some companies have taken the decision to offer remote working as a long-term option for their employees. Whether you are home or office based, this is likely to affect a lot of businesses in the future, so we’ve put together some tips for effective communication with a remote team.

Establish norms for communication

Everyone copes with work stress and working from home differently, but you can do your bit to help your colleagues by respecting their working hours and avoiding sending messages or emails outside of the norm. If you’re working different hours than normal, make sure your team knows when they can contact you and establish the best means of communication that works for you, be it Slack, Microsoft Teams or a simple email.

Stick to meeting agendas

Just because you’re not meeting face to face doesn’t mean you can’t have structure in your meetings. If it’s a situation where you would normally prepare an agenda, you can do the same for video calls and make sure everyone has a copy beforehand. You probably won’t need to do this for every meeting you have, but it will help to set expectations and make sure outcomes are met.

Don’t send complicated emails

Without the option of being able to sidle up to a colleague’s desk and ask them a quick question, you might opt to send them an email instead. But what you think is a quick question can easily get complicated in email format. If you find yourself typing out overly long or confusing messages, it might be best to arrange a video call with that person instead.

Testimonials

""I found the Staff at juice personal especially Viki to be extremely personable and accommodating. I was kept up to date with the progress of my application and subsequent interview and received communication from Viki both before and after interview which I found to be helpful. I would highly recommend this company for anybody looking for new employment""

Jenna Hudson - Placed in a permanent position

"I have been registered with Juice for over 1 year and find everyone that works for the company professional, very helpful, honest and reliable. They have always been quick to find me work at reputable companies where I have enjoyed working, I would recommend Juice to anyone looking for work time and time again."

Lauren Clark - Temp to Perm placement

"Working with Juice has been so beneficial and advantageous as they will do anything with open arms to find the most suited job for you as they did for me. In my opinion they are unlike any other agency I have been with. They are very understanding of your previous employment and future employment and take into consideration what sort of field and environment you are wanting to work in. If you're ever unhappy with anything they will listen to your problems and solve them as quickly and as efficiently as possible. They are all very polite and lovely people to talk to and I've never been so happy or so settled in a job 2 days in, that they found me. An outstanding recruitment agency very recommended!"

Emily Duggan - Temporary to permanent

"I approached Juice personnel in October 2014 looking for some temporary work. They were great to work with and found me a placement right away. This initially started as a temporary contract. After a few weeks the company offered me a permanent position working on reception on a part time basis. Since then, my personal circumstances have changed slightly and I applied recently for another position within the company on full time basis as a HR administrator. I was offered the position on a 3 month trail, which looks like it is now going to go permanent quite soon. I will probably be working with Juice again now as I will now be responsible for helping with the recruitment for the company. I am looking forward to working with Juice again. I am really enjoying my new role and I would like to thank all at Juice for all their help in finding me a great job and career. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to friends and family."

Tracy Johnson - Long Term Temporary worker

""The staff at Juice are so friendly and really committed to finding work that really suits you. Their communication is great and I receive regular emails detailing new vacancies. If you are thinking of registering with an employment agency, don't hesitate to go with Juice - you won't be disappointed.""

Carole Shaw - Temporary worker

"“Juice Personnel is a great agency made up of dedicated and friendly staff. I highly regard their professional opinions and found them very helpful in supporting my search for a new role and will be recommending them to all my friends and family.""

Mark Banfield - Placed in a permanent position

"If it hadn’t been for you guys and your powers of persuasion I’m quite aware that I wouldn’t even have got an interview, never mind an offer. I had been for interview with a number of agencies, both in Wakefield and Leeds, but have to say Juice was the only one which I felt understood exactly what I was looking for, despite my qualifications. It was also the friendliness which I loved – you almost make candidates feel they are part of your team. Viki has been great – keeping my morale going at the beginning when I was waiting for decisions!! "
