A: When it comes to training employees about remote work, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First, it's important to ensure that everyone understands the basics of working remotely. This includes things like communication protocols, setting up a home office, and staying productive while away from the traditional workplace.
Once the basics are covered, you can then move on to more specific training topics. For example, you might want to provide training on how to use specific remote work tools or how to stay connected with team members when working from different locations.
No matter what type of training you provide, the most important thing is to make sure that your employees feel prepared and comfortable with the transition to remote work. By taking the time to properly train your team, you can set them up for success in this new way of working.
A: There are a variety of skills that are beneficial for remote work. Some of the most important skills include:
-Time management: Being able to manage your time effectively is crucial when working remotely. This means being able to stay focused and avoid distractions.
-Organizational skills: Keeping yourself organized is also key when working from home. This includes staying on top of deadlines, maintaining a tidy workspace, and knowing where to find things when you need them.
-Communication skills: Since you’ll be communicating mostly through email, chat, and video conferencing, it’s important to have strong communication skills. This includes being clear and concise in your writing, and being able to articulate your thoughts verbally.
-Tech skills: Depending on the nature of your work, you may need to be proficient in certain technologies. For example, if you’re working as a web developer, you’ll need to know how to code. Or if you’re working in customer service, you should know how to use the company’s CRM software.
-Flexibility: One of the great things about working remotely is that you can often set your own hours. However, this also means being flexible and accommodating when clients or team members need to reach you outside of traditional business hours.
These are just a few of the skills that are important for remote work. If you have these skills, you’ll be well-equipped to succeed in a remote job.
A: There is a lot of confusion when it comes to the terms telecommuting and teleworking. Here's a look at the key differences between the two:
Telecommuting generally refers to working from home, whereas teleworking can refer to working from any location other than the office.
Telecommuting usually implies a more flexible arrangement, where employees can choose their own hours and work from any location they desire. Teleworking, on the other hand, is often a structured arrangement set up by employers, with specific hours and locations required.
Telecommuting is often used as an alternative to traditional office work, whereas teleworking is often used in addition to office work (for example, employees may telework one or two days a week, in addition to coming into the office the rest of the week).
So, what is the difference between telecommuting and teleworking? In short, telecommuting is usually more flexible, while teleworking is often more structured.
When individuals need to learn Telecommuting, Certstaffix Training provides online classes in two formats: 1) Live Online or 2) Self-paced eLearning.
Our live online Telecommuting training classes are held on set schedules and taught by real live instructors. You can view live online class schedules by viewing each course outline. These are fully interactive classes that students attend in a virtual Zoom classroom. You can ask questions just like in a physical classroom. There are break times throughout the day. Most classes also involve hands-on exercises in an online lab environment we provide during class (may require trial or own login).
Our Telecommuting eLearning courses are self-paced - you attend when it is convenient for you in a web browser. Video lectures teach you and you can start, stop & replay as much as you like during your 6-month subscription length. Certain eLearning classes (as indicated on each eLearning course outline) also include a virtual computer where you can practice with the software you are learning (may require trial or own login). Telecommuting eLearning is a good solution for independent learners or people with limited schedules.
When you need Telecommuting onsite training for a corporate group, we can send an instructor to your office or hold online private classes. Telecommuting onsite training classes allow face-to-face in-person instruction by sending an instructor to your office. You can also schedule a private live online training for your group that allows for a class for just your employees. Get a quote today online or give us a call at 888-330-6890.
