We’ve said it before. The ‘new normal’ is here, and it’s here to stay. Over the past 8 months, we’ve had to deal with various challenges. Where are we going to work? How are we going to work? What tools do we need to do our job properly?

Below is a list of important tips you can follow for working remotely:

  1. Better to have communicated ten time too many than once too little. Be clear and unambigious to each other what everyone is doing.
  2. Keep a close eye on your schedule. Plan and monitor your working hours and projects and update your colleagues about that.
  3. Deadlines. They are sacrosanct and create structure in your day. Worried about meeting those deadlines? Communicate this as soon as possible.
  4. Keep your contact information up to date. How can you be contacted and when?
  5. Keep your auto-replay and voicemail up to date. Explain what other people can expect from you in response time.
  6. Reach clear agreements with your family. Try to minimise interruptions.
  7. Plan and take breaks. Theses are essential, both for your productivity and your own wellbeing. If necessary. Ask a colleague to monitor you ‘remotely’
  8. Don’t disappear into a vacuum. Respond regularly to messages, telephone calls and chats. You can, of courses, go offline temporarily to focus on a task or project, but do keep your finger on the pulse in between
