Improve Team Communications When You Have Remote Staff
How to have good company communications in a pandemic.
Since March 2020, the work force has changed a lot. Most companies are dealing with the issues of communication. What started off as a boom form tech companies like Zoom, has caused many users to be “Zoomed Out”.
Many users are feeling burnout from the Always Online nature of today’s work environment. It makes it hard for many users to focus on the current task at hand. The worst part is that every time your interrupted we’ll need to start over. Depending on the task, a 5-minute interruption takes 15-30 minutes to get back on task. Get 2 of those interruptions in the same hour and that is how productivity suffers.
We use the program SLACK. It allows for Project Channels, External Channels and Private communications. Here is the hard decision your team needs to think about. Private communication hurts remote teams. Because of it, knowledge and information are not shared equally, and no matter how trivial a discussion is, others might benefit from it. BUT, if you put all the conversations on Public, then all the subscribers on the channel have to see the communication and if it doesn’t fully involve them, they may tune out.
