Collaboration Is Key

When you're away from the rest of your team, clear communication becomes even more important. The fact is, most work involves collaboration with others in some form or another, and when you're not all in the same place (as is the case when working remotely), you need to be very deliberate in your communication. Decision makers should implement communication tools, which include the common goal of striving for increased employee productivity and efficiency, but also enhanced customer engagement, increased employee collaboration, cost savings, new revenue opportunities and competitive advantage.

Enterprise professionals are often on the move, working on the next big sale or strategizing new partnership negotiations, so they are aware of the challenges that working remotely poses for productivity. Enterprise professionals also need to stay on top of their work in the interim, whether that's from a hotel room, train station or airport. A major factor to being productive on the road is communication and collaboration.

There's no magic bullet, but the essentials are to make sure to have the right tools at your disposal while on the move to communicate with your teams in ways that fit your needs, as well as being flexible, clear and direct in your communication (especially when collaboration is asynchronous rather than real-time, as is often the case across multiple time zones). Because reliability and availability are essential for a worker on the move, here's an outline of five ways to stay productive while working remotely from web collaboration experts LoopUp.
