Maintaining Workflow During The COVID-19 Crisis by MacWorks, LLC

Our go-to guy for everything tech, Jerry Zigmont at MacWorks, offers up these tips:

Do you use Slack in the workplace?

Slack is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face. Best of all you and your employees can get started for free with unlimited participants.

Implement a daily ‘Virtual Stand Up’ Meeting

Using a daily virtual standup tool such as Standup Jack, you can engage to review team members’ progress or input–in the morning, during the day, or whenever’s best for your group. This is a great way to connect your employees and coordinate efforts as everyone works remotely.

Frustrated VPN isn’t working?

The network in your office might not match the settings of the network you’re working on from home–in that case the VPN won’t allow you to connect to your server. We can assist you by remotely making the necessary changes to get your VPN working. Please don’t struggle, give us a call.

Thoughts on creative ways you can ease the burden of change for your team:

• Offer a one-time payment to employees to set up a more productive work-from-home-workspace like a lamp or a better chair.

• Start a weekly email using MailChimp (free) from your company’s leadership to remain transparent and share some unique insights or challenges you are facing.

• Ask for feedback about how you can improve your users’ remote working experience. Team members will feel valued and you’ll probably uncover some unique insights into their work-at-home issues.
