Remote Employee Challenges During COVID-19 and What to Do About Them

Remote Employee Challenges

Coronavirus has had a major impact on businesses, putting markets on swings and leaving people everywhere unsure of what comes next. Naturally, companies across the world are concerned about the impact on their overall business performance. At the end of the day, How your business will emerge is not only impacted by global legislative, health, and economic factors, but is also strongly tied to your human response, leadership, and scenario planning in the time you have today.

With the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many organizations need to supplement their existing business continuity with an effective management method, especially with employees working from home. Here are the issues that might arise from working-from-home employees and what to do about it.

Decreased Employee Productivity

Some employees end up working less effectively without direct supervision. Without the motivations inherent in an office setting, productivity can just as easily decrease rather than increase when you institute a work from home policy. Before issuing your employees to work from home, make sure your employees have the right collaboration, data access and productivity technologies to enable a baseline remote work experience.

Lower Employee Engagement

Remote work has grown 44% over the last five years. However, even before COVID-19, increasing remote employee’ engagement was challenging, especially when it comes to organizing meetings, conference calls, or when you need to speak to someone right there and then. To overcome this challenge by keeping engagement as it is, companies can provide employees the communication gear such as monitors, laptops, webcams and conference speakers.

Potential Security Threats

When you’re letting employees work from home, your company network will be vulnerable to potential security concerns. Unsecured networks, for example, when using a coffee shop’s internet connection, can cause data breaches. A personal laptop is not likely to have the same level of antivirus software or defense against malware attacks as your office-based computers, smartphones with sensitive company information on them can easily be lost. This is why companies should consider deploying security solutions that feature strong web protection as well as technologies capable of preventing their network from exploitation.

Difficulties in Monitoring Business Operations
