Boosting Remote Productivity: 5 Tips for SMBs with LIVD

As modern work environments change, and remote arrangements are rapidly becoming the norm, it’s important for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to not just adapt but to thrive in this evolving environment. Companies need to ensure that their teams remain productive and engaged. In this article, we’ll discuss 5 valuable tips to help remote workers stay on top of their game, along with how LIVD can complement these efforts.

1. Creating a Routine and Clear Daily Goals

Establishing a daily routine is essential for remote workers. According to the Harvard Business Review,  92% of “highly productive people” were more likely to have a planned morning routine. It helps in maintaining a work-life balance and ensures that tasks are completed efficiently. Companies can encourage their employees to set clear daily schedules and allocate time for breaks, meals, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Outlining your tasks for the day and prioritizing them based on urgency and importance will help to set you up for success. This might include activities like morning stretches, a healthy breakfast, and a dedicated time for planning your day. This not only jumpstarts your productivity, but also sets a positive tone for the hours ahead.

How LIVD Helps: LIVD provides a seamless solution for SMBs to allocate monthly fringe benefits to their remote teams. This empowers employees to make choices that suit their daily routines, whether it’s investing in wellness programs, fitness, or other lifestyle perks that enhance their lives each day.

2. Having a Separate Workspace

A dedicated workspace at home can make a significant difference in productivity. It separates work from personal life and minimizes distractions. This not only helps you mentally transition into work mode, but also create a space to let you focus on the core tasks at hand. Companies can encourage their remote employees to set up a comfortable, organized workspace to optimize productivity.

How LIVD Helps: LIVD ensures that employees have access to resources that can help create an ideal work environment. This might include benefits for ergonomic office furniture, lighting, or other tools that enhance the home office. We’ve teamed up with your favourite brands to make this easy!

3. Checking in with Team Members

Effective communication is vital for remote teams. Regular check-ins with team members help maintain cohesion, provide support, and keep everyone aligned. According to a study by Gallup, on average, only 15% of employees who work for a manager who does not meet with them regularly are engaged; managers who regularly meet with their employees almost tripled that level of engagement. SMBs can establish clear communication channels and encourage remote workers to participate actively.

How LIVD Helps: LIVD offers wellness benefits that can be used for team-building activities or social interactions among remote team members. Whether it’s virtual team lunches or shared online experiences, these benefits can foster stronger team relationships.

4. Video Chats with Team Members

Video conferences provide a personal touch to remote work. They facilitate face-to-face interactions and improve engagement. SMBs can advocate for the use of video chats in team meetings and one-on-one discussions to stay better connected to your team.

5. Dressing Professionally for the Day/Getting Ready

While remote work offers flexibility, employees need to maintain a sense of professionalism in their daily routine. SMBs can encourage their teams to start the day as if they were heading to the office, which can boost confidence and productivity.

How LIVD Helps: LIVD’s fringe benefits can include perks for personal grooming and apparel, helping remote workers invest in their appearance and overall well-being.

Creating a successful routine as a remote worker is a journey of understanding what works best for you, makes you most productive, and connects you with others to grow at your role. These five tips can significantly enhance remote productivity for SMBs and their teams. LIVD complements these efforts by providing a flexible platform with personalized fringe benefits. By using LIVD, companies can ensure that their employees have the resources they need to thrive in their remote work environments while staying motivated, engaged, and productive.
