In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, worldwide organizations have shifted to remote working. However, not many were prepared to face this sudden change in their daily operations. Even though some were equipped with the right technologies, they were confused about implementing the right technology. In the middle of uncertainties, Microsoft Teams emerged as the game-changer for many companies working remotely.
Remote employees can easily search for files, content, and people, and through Microsoft Planner integration, users get access to an effective project management tool. Besides, users can pin any website or SharePoint Page to a tab in a specific Microsoft Teams channel.
Here are some ways Microsoft Teams is helping remote employees to stay focused and increase their productivity,
Simplify Meetings: By allowing remote employees, their managers, and clients to indulge in face-to-face video calls, Microsoft Teams accelerates the response time. Microsoft Teams helps remote employees stay focused on their tasks by allowing them to share the screen in an ongoing call, collaborate on the timeline, and follow the schedule as per their status.
Centralized Project Hub: Remote workers can quickly access relevant and priority projects or projects on which they most recently worked. It helps in timesaving, thereby giving them more time to complete the projects with more precision.
Customize Project Insights: With Microsoft Teams, you get access to different options for viewing project performance. Get an ordered list to get better insights into status and workflow, or access the list according to dates to visualize the performance of each task and assignment per project.
Efficient Communication and Collaboration: Microsoft Teams allows remote workers to engage with team members, clients, and project stakeholders through chat, video, or audio calls. It empowers them to work synchronously with other team members. Users can edit the task list, update it, schedule projects, and more.
Speed up Assessment: Due to different reasons, major projects stall. Different team members are dependent on each other to complete the project. Microsoft Teams gives access to a Project Collaboration tool that brings efficiency and transparency in the way projects are handled. Face-to-face meetings, one-on-one calls, real-time document writing, and revision accelerate the process of getting feedback.
Create and Share Reports Seamlessly: Using the pre-built report templates in Microsoft Teams, users can track the progress of projects, resources, programs, and portfolios efficiently and seamlessly.
Giving users access to a trustable communication and collaboration tool they can customize like Microsoft Teams marks the start of empowering and transforming your remote employees. The capability to customize, integrate and access numerous built-in apps provides them the autonomy they need to work remotely. With this added autonomy, your remote workers get the power to recreate the similar approaches they had while working from the office.
Microsoft Teams helps in making meetings more productive and effective. Teams offer more than one way to communicate and collaborate. It allows remote workers to engage in numerous ways. Users can record, share, and transcribe calls for quick and convenient information distribution.
Remote workers can share and edit the documents directly in Microsoft Teams for increased collaboration. It helps them understand document status and avoid some common issues like version control and duplicating efforts. They can add internal and external email domains and sync files to cloud-based OneDrive.
It is hard for organizations to build and sustain culture amongst remote workers. Microsoft Teams helps in creating a substantial and secure enterprise culture by customizing tools and workflows. A proper way to identify employee preferences and keep them engaged shapes company culture.
Microsoft Teams integrates with versatile third-party apps that can be used to gauge the pulse of employee satisfaction. Short polls and employee surveys help identify problems. Hearing their voices and implementing changes to accommodate their needs fosters good employee engagement.
