Many people today are still urged to work from home due to the current situation. Since working from home is a completely different experience compared to working at the office, challenges might appear that may disrupt people from performing their best. This includes material distractions (television, game consoles), pets, chores, or just the setting itself that is not ideal for working.
One of the solutions is to work closer with your colleagues and help each other to stay focused on the task. Luckily, Bisner has all the necessary tools to improve your employees’ productivity and remote working experience.
Before arriving to the features, it is important to cover the essential strategies on how to be productive while also working together with your colleagues:
1. Clear Task Overview
As stated on our previous blog, it is important to know what other people are doing to remind us that we are doing everything as a team, that no one is working alone. This can be performed by updating individual tasks under one general feed where it is visible to everyone. People will be reminded that the team is active and working towards the same objective. In addition, employees will also be mindful of what is going on the bigger picture of the company and take part accordingly.
2. Organised Task Segmentation
In order to be more organised in managing tasks, it is important to have different files for different tasks. For example, different projects can be kept under its own file in order to avoid mixing it up.
3. One-on-one interaction
One-on-one engagement is an important method to maintain productivity on a more personal level. Colleagues can help each other to stay on track and make sure that all tasks are finished on time.
By using Bisner, these tasks can be done with ease with our features:
1. Activity Feed
Our activity feed feature allows employees to present their tasks publicly. This way, everyone will always be updated by just reading the posts. In a situation where a problem occurs, employees can also publish a post to let everyone know, and they will receive help in no time. Automatically, communication within the organization will also be strengthened. Productivity rate will be better when employees are informed.
2. Interest Groups
Creating different sectors for different tasks will make everything more organized within the group. Employees can create different groups for different projects, where the activity feed will only consist of information of the same topic. This will maximize effectiveness because all contents will be organized under the application. All they need to do is click it instead of searching for separate folders or emails.
3. Instant Messaging
One-on-one engagement is one of the easiest yet underrated methods to create a productive community. Inform and update each other with just one click. Communication with each other will also be more simpler when working from home. When everything is offered under just one application, productivity within the organisation will increase.
