Choosing The Right Path For Your Online Business

Posted on November 24, 2021 at 10:46 am

After the Covid-19 Pandemic where we were encouraged to work from home to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Following this, we have seen multiple paths of how our online business can work, this is mainly important for those who work in offices offering online services. So, which path will be right for your business?

Path 1 – Office Work
The first path you can choose to go down is having everyone come back into the office to work as they would have done before the Covid-19 pandemic. This is the path for you if you find your company works better being able to see each other and easily communicate with one another. It does allow workers to potentially get distracted, but also work closely with one another on projects.

Path 2 – Home Based Work
If you found working from home worked well for your business, it may be ideal that you keep this working method. You may find that your workers continue to work effectively even if they are at home. This path will also help you to keep your costs down as you will no longer need to rent business premises.

Path 3 – Blended Work
Another option for your business is to have a blended working option. This means that you are putting together home-based work and office work. Meaning your workers will be able to have the best of both worlds. They can work from the office and their home depending on what works the best for them. This is the best option if you want to keep all of your workers happy, as everyone will have their own opinions on what works best.

Path 5 – Freelance Work
The final path you may choose to go down is the Freelance path. This means that you outsource work with freelancers. This can be a good option to keep your costs down if you do not have a steady flow of incoming work. Building a relationship with a freelancer and always using them will help your business to grow with its work.

How To Ensure Your IT Company Works Together

Posted on October 27, 2021 at 9:56 am

When working in the IT industry, you will understand how difficult it is for everyone in all of the different office departments to communicate with one another and work well together. This is especially difficult in larger businesses that are situated in larger offices.

So, how can you ensure that your IT company is working well together and their communication is a priority?

Firstly, you want to ensure that you as the company owner are good at communicating with all of your workers. If you lead by example, people within the company are more likely to follow what you do. You need to be able to set an example of what you expect from your workers.

Ideally, you want to keep track of your worker’s performance and if possible a list of wh they are chatting to on their work computers. If you run on an online system like Slack, it can be easy to monitor who is talking to who without going into their personal space. Meaning you will be able to see if departments are speaking to one another and working together to complete projects.

Another way you can ensure different sections of your IT company are working well together is by communicating with them. Ask them if any improvements could be made to the working process, who they have been chatting to on the project, and how well they think they’re doing. This will help you to know if they are working well together and what you can do to improve their communication.

It is extremely important that communication is kept as a high priority to ensure a smooth working office. Once the skills of communication are mastered you will find your work runs smoothly. We will discuss more the importance of communication in future posts.
