3 ways to effectively communicate with your remote team

3 ways to effectively communicate with your remote team

With so many of us working from home amid the COVID-19 crisis, some companies have taken the decision to offer remote working as a long-term option for their employees. Whether you are home or office based, this is likely to affect a lot of businesses in the future, so we’ve put together some tips for effective communication with a remote team.

Establish norms for communication

Everyone copes with work stress and working from home differently, but you can do your bit to help your colleagues by respecting their working hours and avoiding sending messages or emails outside of the norm. If you’re working different hours than normal, make sure your team knows when they can contact you and establish the best means of communication that works for you, be it Slack, Microsoft Teams or a simple email.

Stick to meeting agendas

Just because you’re not meeting face to face doesn’t mean you can’t have structure in your meetings. If it’s a situation where you would normally prepare an agenda, you can do the same for video calls and make sure everyone has a copy beforehand. You probably won’t need to do this for every meeting you have, but it will help to set expectations and make sure outcomes are met.

Don’t send complicated emails

Without the option of being able to sidle up to a colleague’s desk and ask them a quick question, you might opt to send them an email instead. But what you think is a quick question can easily get complicated in email format. If you find yourself typing out overly long or confusing messages, it might be best to arrange a video call with that person instead.

Testimonials

"After working in transport for over 45 years, mostly as a hgv driver, I took an early retirement package, and decided to work as an Agency driver. I worked for a few agencies and then joined Juice. It is like working for a family company. Everyone is approachable, and helpful, and happy. I have now worked for Juice for over 3 years. I work a few days a week between holidays. Although I swap my days around, Juice always seem to find me work when I want it, working for companies that I like working for, and at times that suit me. I have never had a problem with my wages. Although I am now officially retired, I plan to continue working for a few years yet, and I have no intention of working for anyone other than Juice. In my opinion, they are the best agency around. "

Ron Harrison - Class 1 Driver

""The staff at Juice are so friendly and really committed to finding work that really suits you. Their communication is great and I receive regular emails detailing new vacancies. If you are thinking of registering with an employment agency, don't hesitate to go with Juice - you won't be disappointed.""

Carole Shaw - Temporary worker

"Following an initial misunderstanding regarding role profile, the Juice team reacted swiftly to supply strong candidates for interview from whom we were able to select the right person for the job. They have also followed up the initial recruitment and demonstrated good commitment to delivering the right service for our business. I can recommend Juice Personnel."

VHE

"Juice Personnel found me a great job that suited me and what I was looking for. The staff are all very efficient & have great communication with their clients. I started temping with them within a couple of weeks of enquiry about a job. I was temping for 3 months and now I am starting with the company permanent. I would highly recommend using Juice if you are out of work or looking for a new job. "

Kirsty Walton - Temp to Perm placement

"Hi ladies Just to let you know that I have accepted an offer of permanent employment this afternoon so I will no longer require your services. Thank you for everything over the past couple of months, I am really grateful for the temp placements and interviews you have sourced for me. "

Fiona Baker - Registered Candidate

"“Juice Personnel is a great agency made up of dedicated and friendly staff. I highly regard their professional opinions and found them very helpful in supporting my search for a new role and will be recommending them to all my friends and family.""

Mark Banfield - Placed in a permanent position

"Juice Personnel is a professionally run and maintained agency with the great ability to balance work to its many members of staff, a very difficult task of late. I am often asked why I have been with Juice so long - 10 dedicated years. Having been to other agencies, they quite honestly just don't compare to Juice is my stock answer. I also tell them that after being with Juice for so many years my wages have never been late; this is very important as you know what you are going to get. So why change something that is right? Dedicated Juice Professional. 10 Years and counting. "

Ian Jenkins - Class 1 Driver
