The Rising Remote Work Trend: How to Structure Your Newly Flexible Schedule

Rising-Remote-Work-Trend

The past eighteen months have brought unprecedented change into the workforce. The standard 9 to 5 is no longer the norm, and many people claim it was never sustainable to begin with. As rapidly as things change, management teams have had to learn how to adjust on the job.



One of the perplexing issues managers are facing is how to schedule their remote employees. Some workers may be on Pacific time while others are on Eastern. Depending on the size of the company, some key employees could even be overseas.

How to Create an Efficient Schedule

First, employees need to be made aware of the schedule requirements. Some businesses prefer their employees to spend two days in the office and three at home working remotely. Other employers choose to demand employees come to the office for two weeks and work from home for two weeks.

Splitting time between home and the office is called a hybrid work schedule. Fully remote schedules are best built with the assistance of different software and tools that make it easier to be inclusive.

How to Structure Your Newly Flexible Schedule

Make a Detailed Calendar

When building a schedule for a remote team, a calendar that is accessible to everyone on the team should be available at all times. Keeping up with meetings, staying aware of cultural holidays, and tracking project management is considerably easier with a team calendar in place.

Keep the Schedule in One Place

Next, centralizing and categorizing your schedule will keep you and your employees well-organized. Daily (or at least weekly) meetings designed to check in and ensure everyone is on-task and confident in their work should be in place. The schedule should be in one location for everyone to access at all times.

Your schedule should have different categories that make it simple for staff members to find a variety of information. Meetings, due dates, and events ought to be divided and even color-coded for easy readability.

Feedback: The Most Important Part of Scheduling

Without a doubt, feedback is the most powerful tool you can use when scheduling. The happier employees are, the more productive they are. Employees who are unsatisfied with their schedule and don’t have an open line of communication with their managers resort to finding another job that better fits their needs.

Scheduling is a vital component of successful remote work teams. Though it initially may seem difficult, constructing a remote work schedule can be easy with the help of a few tools and some good feedback.

Once your employees are smoothly transitioned into the new schedule, enjoy the fruits of your labor! Instead of brainstorming ways to make your scheduling work on your off time, go on a day trip or partake in a trip with Outdoor Solutions for a new adventure.
