Due to the work from home setup, companies were able to stay afloat even during the pandemic’s crippling effects. While it has not been a smooth transition, employees are still able to work and remain compliant, especially those working in the regulated sectors. However, productivity has definitely gone down. Cabin fever has been rampant during this lockdown. To cope with it and all other problems during lockdown, here are some tips while working during this lockdown period.
- Use messaging apps with compliance in mind
Avoiding any violation of data retention laws is key during this time for regulated sectors. Handling messages as if you are in your normal workplace or office can help you comply with the rules set.
- Dress appropriately for the job
Working from home can be more relaxed than the office setup leading to employees wearing just about anything they want. While this is not discouraged, it would help if employees were to dress for the job. This can boost productivity and affect one’s behavior positively.
- Keep distractions to a minimum while working
Remote workers must find a place where they can focus on and accomplish their tasks with ease. While this may be hard for parents, it can be vital to remaining productive.
- Stick to regulatory-compliant messaging solutions provided by the company
