We get asked this a lot: how can our organization do a better job at engaging our remote workers? Today, more than ever, organizations have employees working offsite, from home, and even in different countries. Additionally, 68% of millennials seeking jobs state that the option to work remotely would significantly increase their interest in an employer, according to AfterCollege.
Fortune.com states that remote job postings increased 26% from 2013 to 2014, demonstrating this growing workforce trend. In the next 5 years, 83% of hiring managers say telecommuting will increase tremendously. With increased demand for your employees to work remotely, a challenge sprouts as a result. The challenge at hand is finding the most efficient, productive method to engage with and motivate your remote workers.
According to Harvard Business Review, 87% of remote workers feel more connected through the use of video conferencing. This is an excellent medium to employ in order to stay in touch. But what if you simply don’t have time to arrange video conference calls? There has to be a quick, easy solution to boost engagement, right?
Sure, you can use basic telecommunications platforms including email, instant messaging, and phone calls to stay in touch. But this is merely a starting point. What drives employee productivity, engagement, and motivation is rewards and incentives. If your employees are working remotely, you need a way to deliver rewards in order to incentivize great work!
