Effectively Managing Remote Teams

The pandemic has normalised working from home, changing the way businesses operate and potentially revolutionising the way we work forever. With many businesses now adopting a remote working culture, managing remote teams has never been so important. Working from home provides many benefits, offering flexibility, cheaper operational costs, and giving employees a better home life balance. Remote working also comes with new challenges and limitations, such as lack of supervision, distractions, and possible security threats. Employee monitoring software is designed to increase productivity, improve IT security, and identify potential issues early.

Benefits of Monitoring Remote Employees

Employee monitoring software is an effective way to manage your workforce, boosting workflow and keeping your employees on track. Using employee surveillance systems allows managers to track and supervise their team’s IT usage live, or from the past. It’s a reliable way to monitor employees work computers, including search history, attendance, activities, emails, application usage and productivity levels. This information lets managers to identify which employees are performing to a high standard, and which employees are not meeting expectations, allowing them to offer support, feedback, and additional training.

Surveillance systems also increases the company’s IT security, offering both legal and employee security. Accessing employees work devices can protect your business from potential security breaches, suspicious behaviour, and insider threats, whether they are done maliciously or accidently. Employee monitoring offers employees safer working conditions, protecting them from cyber harassment, bullying and sexual harassment, and protects the business from legal issues from people accessing illegal content or conducting illicit behaviour on company property.

The Benefits of Microsoft Remote Desktop Services

Following the outbreak of Covid-19 and the national lockdown, many people had to change their working habits and begin working from home. For business owners, this involved solving a range of problems to keep their companies going and to support their employees – from finding them suitable equipment to investing in IT solutions to provide a productive working environment.

A survey by PwC found that CEOs believe working from home will continue into the future. Therefore, it is not hard to conclude that the companies who invested in a good work-from-home set up during Covid-19 the pandemic have invested wisely.

A Remote Desktop Service is a key IT function for businesses who need their
employees to work from home, or from other remote locations. Remote Desktop functions have often been considered “clunky” to use or tricky to configure for different devices, however this couldn’t be further from the truth.

The Desktop Service can be accessed and managed from almost any location on the planet, and from almost any device – including mobile phones and personal laptops. The log-in process is typically the same, and quickly becomes as easy as using a standard desktop computer.
Configuration is also easy. You don’t need to worry about the compatibility of the operating system on the remote device, it is just a case of logging in. If you want to switch devices, simply disconnect the old one and reconnect using the new one.

IT Security is another key feature. You can assign permissions to particular data files in the normal way, but your data is also less vulnerable to breaches, hacking or technological and device failures due to it being a Cloud-based system. Most systems come with built-in encryption.

Investing in the Microsoft Remote Desktop can save your business money. It is a reliable storage system at a fraction of the cost of a standard IT service, and IT support is included. Money saved can be invested back into the growth of your business.

Lastly, the benefits of an engaged and connected workforce cannot be overlooked. Most employees who can complete their tasks remotely rather than being confined in one location prove to be more trustworthy and motivated, and in turn more productive for your business.
