Remote work has experienced an unprecedented surge in recent years, and while it has brought many benefits, it also poses challenges in maintaining motivation and commitment among teams working remotely.

That’s why we present you with 5 strategies to implement if your company is struggling with this:

1. Define a routine together with designated spaces for total concentration.

The first thing your company should establish is a regular work schedule and ensure its compliance. We recommend having hours of total concentration where nobody can schedule or interrupt each other to get their daily tasks done.

Also, it is the company’s responsibility to ensure a suitable workspace at your team’s homes. Recommend a quiet place, free from distractions, and with the necessary tools to work comfortably (ask if they need anything and assist them with it).

Why? Well, according to a study by Upwork, remote workers who have a workspace that meets these basics report 32% more productivity.

2. Foster communication and collaboration.

Encourage your team to stay in touch with colleagues through video calls, chats, and instant messaging. This will help synchronize everyone towards the objectives and prevent isolation and misunderstandings.

Furthermore, individuals who have a strong social connection with their coworkers are 50% more likely to be satisfied with their work.

3. Set clear and achievable goals.

Leaders should define specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound objectives. This will help keep the team focused.

We recommend breaking down large projects into smaller, more manageable tasks, and it’s worth mentioning that celebrating achievements, even small ones, is beneficial.

4. Take care of the physical and mental health of the team.

Balancing personal and professional life is crucial in this work modality. A good starting point is to encourage your team to engage in regular physical activity. This relieves stress and improves people’s mood.

Also, allocate active breaks or regular short periods for them to take breaks and avoid fatigue and overload.

5. Invest in their professional development.

Part of the team’s budget can be dedicated semi-annually to improve their professional skills. From online courses to reading books together, these can be good strategies that ultimately make your team more competitive.

And finally, we just want to remind you that physical and mental well-being are essential for success. Don’t let your team suffer from the infamous burnout; instead, turn your company into a place full of happy individuals with their professional goals.
