While the unwelcome impact of the pandemic has the entire nation transitioning into a new reality, many of us are facing circumstances we never imagined. The economic impact is hitting quickly, and one of the first things companies have done to preserve their budgets is cutting employees from their payroll. In March, an estimated 10 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits and The New York Times estimates that the current national unemployment rate has risen to nearly 13%. So, if you’re among the droves of Americans facing unexpected layoffs due to COVID-19, you’re not alone.

Like all things — this too, shall pass, and in the meantime we want to offer our support and let you know that you do have options. But where to start?

While everyone is adjusting to life while being self-quarantined, managers around the world find themselves having to manage their folks a new way. Now that your employees are working remotely, what does your job look like? How do you make sure people are on task and things are getting done? A lot of the tricks more traditional managers use for those tasks just don’t work in a remote world.
The first thing you have to accept about remote work is that it’s not just doing the same thing from somewhere else. Managing remote employees successfully requires a cultural shift in your organization and changes to how you manage people. You can no longer manage by “presence,” because your people aren’t sitting at desks in your office. You can’t make the rounds every day at 9 to make sure everyone is in their chairs looking busy. Instead, you have to manage their output, which is a huge transition in mindset, management style and the amount of data you have to process as a manager.
Thankfully, a lot of companies have been doing remote work for years and there are a host of best practices you can follow!
