10 Tips for Hybrid Endomarketing Success

The adoption of appropriate strategies can improve remote team management, including ensuring that all employees have better productivity within these new paradigms.

 

Within this context, we selected nine golden tips to inspire you in your mission to increase your company's performance. Let's go to them!

 

1. Be clear with the team

Para ter sucesso na gestão de uma equipe, é necessário ter objetivos bem definidos, ou seja, deixar claro para os colaboradores quais são os objetivos e as metas individuais e coletivas a serem alcançadas.

Desse modo, o time todo saberá quais tarefas priorizar e o gestor terá mais facilidade na hora de avaliar o desempenho de cada um.

 

2. Create a routine

Excessive freedom can negatively influence team productivity. To avoid this problem, define a routine that everyone must follow.

 

This routine must demonstrate what the results are expected by the organization. But beware! It is also important to provide flexibility for professionals to carry out their tasks in the best possible way.

 

3. Be ready for unforeseen events

Having and following a plan is essential for remote team management. It is also important that the manager is able to solve problems promptly because calling on employees whenever unforeseen events arise is not considered a good management practice.

 

Just as employees have a routine, so does the manager, and frequent interruptions can hamper overall productivity.

 

4. Periodic face-to-face meetings

Even though the home office is fully functioning, it is recommended to have regular face-to-face meetings. Face-to-face contact is essential to strengthen the relationship between managers and employees, in addition to allowing a better assessment of whether everything is going as planned.

 

Face-to-face meetings are also important to bring closer and increase interaction between the professionals themselves, provide feedback and reward employees who present the best results.

 

5. Define the means of communication

The means used for communication between company employees, during remote work, need to be very well defined so that there are no communication failures, errors in tasks and even a drop in productivity.

 

It is essential that everyone knows how to contact the manager and also how to document each work performed using tools that facilitate interaction, such as email or an instant communication platform, for example.

 

6. Always be present

To command a team from a distance you must always be present. The team needs to know that it can count on a professional who will facilitate its work, whether determining actions or promoting the alignment of strategies.

 

7. Check Point

Time and attendance control is necessary to ensure compliance with labor legislation. In addition, electronic time attendance control is part of the scope of tools that make processes simpler and safer, ensuring the team's attendance and dedication and thus generating satisfactory results.

 

8. Covers team quality

The manager must define the quality standards for the delivery of individual or collective tasks. It is necessary to determine the parameters clearly, including what the final result should be. In this way, the team starts to work more focused,  respecting the deadlines and quality foreseen.

 

9. Invest in technology

 Technology is fundamental for the functioning of any company and it could not be different in managing the team. There are many systems that can help managers achieve performance excellence, especially with regard to hybrid endomarketing.

 

The use of complete management tools allows control over each employee's task, which facilitates the measurement of the team's productivity and the relocation of employees to sectors with greater demands.
