Are you giving your employees a brilliant remote working experience? Right now, very few businesses are. And that’s understandable. For many businesses, making sure their remote working is efficient and compliant is already plenty to handle.
Soon, though, creating and safeguarding a brilliant remote working experience will be a requirement for businesses that want to stay ahead.
Here’s the new standard employees will be demanding from their employers and how you can deliver it. Effortlessly.
Successful businesses get how much employee experience matters. It’s vital for attracting and retaining the best talent and ensuring they’re happy and productive at work.
Working from home comes with lots of immediate benefits for your people – like gaining back commuting time; having more time to be with friends and family, exercise and make healthy food; and a stronger connection to their home, local area and community.
But now that your people are often ‘at work’ in their own homes, creating a brilliant employee experience has also become more complicated. Perhaps more complicated than you’d think.
Here are some questions to think about:
Do your employees have a healthy and productive home working setup?
Are you delivering a great remote onboarding experience for new starters?
Are you leaving your employees to arrange their own home office?
Are your people buying suitable equipment that’s high quality and ergonomic?
Are they paying for items out of their own pocket, upfront?
Are they paying unnecessary tax on their equipment and home working expenses such as electricity, heating and internet?
If you’re supplying the equipment, do they have the freedom to choose?
Are they having to assemble equipment themselves?
Are your people wasting working hours sorting their home offices?
Is their internet connectivity up to scratch?
Can their colleagues see and hear them clearly on video calls?
Do they have everything they need to work happily and productively?
Are you surprising and delighting them with treats, like at the office?
Are they feeling taken care of?
Are they feeling valued?
Are they feeling included?
In the near future, employees will expect the opportunity to work from home. And they’ll expect their employer to not only allow remote working but also facilitate it, while creating great experiences.
Businesses will need to supply, assemble, check, repair and recover equipment. You wouldn’t expect your people to build chairs at your HQ, so why should they do it at home? At the office, you likely offer coffee, snacks and other treats, so why shouldn’t these pick-me-up perks be available to your people in their home offices?
