WAHVE %22Productive Powerhouses%22

Resounding evidence proves what wahves have known all along. TINYpulse, an employee engagement firm, has released a survey entitled, “What Leaders Need to Know about Remote Workers.” Here’s one attention-grabbing statistic:

“An overwhelming 91% of respondents say they’re more productive and believe they ‘get more work done’ when working remotely.”

 Shout it from the rooftops: 91%! And the TINYpulse statistic is corroborated by a 10-month, 16,000-employee study conducted by Stanford researchers, who reported, “Home working led to a 13% performance increase.” Doesn’t it feel good to be on the right side of the future of work?

Here are a few tried and true suggestions remote workers have shared that can power-up productivity:

The TINYpulse survey revealed that the No. 1 deterrent to productivity for the average remote worker is micromanagement. “Don’t treat them with suspicion just because they’re not in your physical sight,” survey analysts caution. But the beauty of being a wahve is bringing experience to the table so as to avoid this feeling, because a wahve does not have to be micromanaged.

  1. Avoid the micromanaging hiccup: The TINYpulse survey revealed that the No. 1 deterrent to productivity for the average remote worker is micromanagement. “Don’t treat them with suspicion just because they’re not in your physical sight,” survey analysts caution. But the beauty of being a wahve is bringing experience to the table so as to avoid this feeling, because a wahve does not have to be micromanaged.
  2. On your hour: Forbes recommends committing to a set of hours and designing a schedule that optimizes your productivity and that the in-office team can depend on. Try to check in for at least a bit five days a week: “The happiest employees, it turns out, are those who typically work every day of the week.”
  3. New and old school: Find a symbiotic relationship between your trusty, traditional notepad and new technologies. Develop a custom task program or to-do system that incorporates some tech, and some pen and paper. (Studies say hand writing can boost productivity and satisfaction in task completion!) The Bullet Journal is a simple and elegant choice for many.

 

We’d love to know: What maximizes your productivity? Any tips you can share with your fellow wahves?
