The Keys To Transitioning Into The Virtual Workforce

In the past few weeks, millions of people from around the world have joined the world of virtual working and will continue to do so in the next few months.

Virtual working has steadily become a significant part of the workforce in three waves. The first wave started in the 1980s with the use of personal computers used to build code, as well as write and edit from the comfort of home. The second wave started in the early 2000s when the working “anytime, anywhere” mantra took hold and companies started allowing people to work from home. 

Now that we are in the stage of mass experimentation, it is important for workers to utilize technology, identify social needs and create a work rhythm to successfully transition into this new way of working.

Technology is key in ensuring a healthy and effective virtual work environment. This means using group platforms for collaborative work and video conferencing tools for meetings.

Having a sense of community is also important in order to avoid isolation. Connecting with colleagues through Slack channels or Zoom social hours is a great way to feel connected.

Additionally, establishing the needs of your workplace at home is vital to being productive at home. Finding workspace that helps you avoid distractions, focus on work and create a routine for yourself can help build a natural work rhythm. This also means waking up and getting dressed each morning despite the temptation of working in your comfiest clothes.
