  • Monitor responsibly. You expect your team to use their team wisely, so you need to do the same! View screenshots and analyze web and app activity, but don’t let it turn into your entire day.
  • Don’t micromanage. Giving guidance doesn’t mean that you need to micromanage. Everyone works differently and learns differently, so remember that as you offer to coach.

How Do You Engage Employees in Multiple Locations?

Engaging with remote employees can be handled in a few different ways, but it mostly depends on if you are engaging on an individual basis or as a group.

As a Group

  • Give them plenty of notice.
  • Don’t use localized slang that may be confusing, especially if your language is their second or third language.
  • If you are teaching them something, use a lot of examples. 

As an Individual

  • Arrange a meeting ahead of time. Assure that it is during their usual work hours.
  • Approach them with respect and kindness, even if you are coaching them.
  • Ensure that they understand you are available to help them if they have any questions.
  • Make sure you keep their situation in mind. Do they have a family? Do they have a chronic illness? This may play into how they handle their workload.

Monitask gives you insight into your team’s work habits that you need to properly assess work style and pinpoint areas in need of improvement. Here are just a few helpful features:
