Colombia and Covid19 make us design telework with virtual reality
Remote work is like a fishing village: before dawn they go out alone to collect everything they can in their boat,
everyone stays in touch and there isn't much help that can be offered.
They come back when they have enough fish, to have fun and share their experiences.
Work is no longer in a different place from home as it was in the industrial revolution, very close to everyone else;
working at home is natural and that is an advantage that we must take advantage of now that everything is connected and we are digital
The first thing is to reaffirm the purpose of the company and the team.
That way everyone has a common point to pursue. Re-present the mission, vision and values that represent the company.
Then the General Manager must show the way by example,
contacting your team the same way you would in person, congratulating, motivating,
praising a job well done and unplugging during non-work hours.
You must be available and show your personal side as well as the professional.
The third step is to create a digital culture that breaks out of decisions and processes and touches the human side:
emoticons, virtual greetings, "ring the bell" when something goes very well, hold informal meetings in the "hall", attend to the human side of the organization.
The fourth step is to use digital tools as much as possible:
text messages, virtual meetings in Google Hangouts, Zoom, have a chat site during group meetings that can be done through virtual reality glasses in a meeting room prepared with the company's environment, its logos and corporate colors.
It's also important to celebrate a job well done: values, not just sales, profits, or working late.
TwoReality is a virtual reality company in Bogota that can design this software for you.
The fifth is to prepare to handle conflict.
If something goes wrong or a behavior needs to be corrected, it is usual to have a meeting in a private room to give the message.
In teleworking you have to prepare much more with an advance “script”, talking about the values and the necessary indications because non-verbal communication is lacking.
In this way we foresee the consequences of a misinterpreted message.
Finally, you have to show compassion and empathy:
Although you cannot invite yourself to lunch or help another with your documents or your desk,
we must look for digital ways: give a card, send "flowers" or a message of support and encouragement.
In the digital world, connection must be created in other ways,
especially with those more extroverts who need human contact to energize.
