Coronavirus and remote working

We’re all experiencing a period of increasing uncertainty and change. As social distancing measures come into effect, more and more organisations across the globe are actioning Business Continuity Plans and moving to remote working - and for some, this is a completely new concept and way of working.

For employees, working from home can bring many challenges. Some may experience difficulty in communicating using online methods, whilst others may struggle with the loss of direct support from their colleagues - all mixed with the uncertainty of how long they’ll be working within this temporary reality.

We know that as businesses continue to safeguard their employees with ‘work from home’ policies, they’ll be addressing the concerns of their workforce - ensuring they have what they need to do their jobs effectively, at ease and with a happy mind. There’s lots of platforms available to encourage employees to interact, and help businesses keep track of what their teams are doing, such as Google Hangouts and Trello. Not to mention a range of tools that aid in productivity, and offer support for different individual challenges people may face. 

Texthelp tools and remote working

At Texthelp, we believe that technology has a hugely important role to play in our vision for a world where difference, disability or language are no longer barriers. At this time, it’s more important than ever.

Each individual works in their own way, with different ways of processing information, completing tasks and sharing updates with their co-workers. For those that aren’t used to an ‘at home working’ environment, this temporary placement of being outside the comfort zone, can create some unexpected challenges. Our Read&Write software can be easily integrated into your preferred platform, to help employees adjust.
