As the coronavirus spreads through the world, many companies are choosing to switch to remote work to protect their employees from COVID-19. Other organizations find themselves forced to adapt as cities and states mandate shelter-in-place.
기업들이 업무 중단을 최소화하고 운영이 가능한 한 정상적으로 운영되도록 노력하기 때문에 재택근무는 귀중한 도구다. 그러나 재택근무에 익숙하지 않은 사람들이 사무실에서 일하는 것에서 가정에서 일하는 것으로 이행할 때, 그들은 원격으로 일하는 것으로 번역되지 않는 습관과 규범에 집착할 수도 있다.
As a leader, it’s up to you to support employees and your company culture by creating the conditions for remote work success.
Here are a few ways you can help employees transition to working remotely while avoiding burnout:
1.유연한 스케줄링 수용
You may have already noticed that some team members are more productive in the morning, while others get more done after lunch.
This is especially true when working remotely. In fact, many people are most productive outside the standard 9-to-5 workday hours.
As your organization shifts to remote work, give your employees the opportunity to adjust their work schedule with their most productive hours. This is especially important during the COVID-19 crisis, as schools close, keeping children home during the day.
Employees will appreciate you trusting them to manage their time and workload effectively. They’ll also enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that they can balance both their work and home demands.
2.직원들에게 작업 공간 지정 제안
If your employees are used to going to an office every day, staying at home for hours on end will undoubtedly feel a little strange.
To help, suggest that they designate a dedicated workspace, whether that be a home office they already have or the dining room table.
Having a space to go to, even if it’s in their house, will help them compartmentalize “work” vs. “home.”
3.아침은 하루 중 가장 중요한 식사다
Working from home has many perks for employees. One is that they could, in theory, work in their pajamas.
However, when people can roll out of bed and immediately turn on their computers, some of them will feel pressure to do so. The lines between “work” and “home” can quickly become blurred.
Encourage employees to set boundaries on when they start and end their days. This transition is already an adjustment; make it clear you don’t expect them to “clock in” at the crack of dawn or stay online 24/7.
4.직원들이 자신의 건강의 우선순위를 정하도록 지원
Working from home will naturally make some employees go stir crazy. Understandably, overall anxiety is also currently at a high for many people. Throw in the fact that offices naturally encourage a certain amount of walking (such as to lunch, meetings and coworkers’ desks) and you can see how the current shift to remote work could negatively impact employee health and wellness.
- Encourage employees to make time for their health:
- Simply taking a walk can help employees feel healthier and happier.
- You might also suggest they build time into their schedules for a fitness class or workout during their day.
- Programs like Peerfit facilitate both in-person and online-streamed workouts paid for by your company’s health insurance or employer wellness dollars.
Helping employees prioritize their own health and wellness will make them feel better, stay healthier and be able to keep going during the crisis
