Recent history has shown us how easy remote work can be, especially in the IT industry. According to a study published by the ifo Institute in March 2023, 3 out of 4 IT employees in Germany work from their own homes. This fact is not surprising, especially when you consider the advantages that everybody can benefit from. But… What are the practices that bring efficiency in IT remote working?
VON Consulting Tech Division, an IT service provider company operating in US, Germany, SEE (3 locations in Romania) and UAE, gives us some pointers on how to do it smoothly.
It’s not a cliché – organization is the key!
One of the secrets to productivity is delimiting your workspace. In other words, even if you are tempted to do your tasks from the sofa, it is recommended to set up a special area. Thus, you won’t feel sleepy when you start work just because you’re in the bedroom, and you won’t feel stressed when you try to fall asleep because you’ve been working there all day.
It is also necessary to clearly establish the working schedule with the employing company. If you’re part of a large team, with members spread across the globe, time zone differences can cause problems. So let everyone know when you’re available, and ask the same of the people you run projects with.
When it comes to transparency and performance, you can turn to numerous task monitoring applications, especially since there are so many options. Among the most popular lately are ClickUp, Todoist, TickTick, nTask and ProofHub.
In addition, another aspect that you should not neglect is keeping in touch with your colleagues. Whether it’s online meetings or texting, there are a variety of platforms to help you communicate. Keep in mind that socialization and constant feedback positively impact your results.
IT remote working – why should you choose it?
First, you optimize time and costs. You no longer have to commute to the office and get stuck in rush hour traffic. In addition, you have flexibility, you can complete tasks in a pleasant and friendly environment, but equipped with all the necessary technology. Not to mention the fact that you have access to reputable companies, which could significantly support your career development.
Of course, there are advantages not only for employees, but also for employers when it comes to IT remote working. They no longer have to waste resources on renting office buildings, and more than that, they will enjoy more productive employees. According to a study conducted by Owl Labs in France, Germany, Netherlands, UK and the Nordic countries, 32% of managers say they have noticed an increase in the productivity of employees who work remotely.
