Challenge #1: Isolation
Let’s face it: You may feel isolated when your home suddenly becomes your office.
In offices, you shape your creative muscles by arguing, discussing, high-five, and celebrating together.
Or do non-work activities like playing TT, grab a coffee, or go out for lunch with your colleagues. These activities can help develop a strong relationship between coworkers.
When you go remote, you don’t have these luxuries. And you focus your time on “work” rather than relationship building and you often feel isolated and disconnected from coworkers.
The Solution: Use tools to make a human connection with teams
Today, companies focus on building a positive remote team culture because a company knows that personal bonds formed between team members actually give their company a competitive edge.

Virtual quizzes: Use tools such as house party to games and quizzes with team
Movie night: Use tools such as Netflix Party to watch a movie with your team.
Challenge #2: Lack of Work Structure
One of the biggest challenges of remote working is the lack of work structure. With different deadlines, colleagues, tasks, communication styles, and priorities, keeping everything on track and running the entire process smoothly often feels like a battle. You need clear objectives to be productive, but structuring the work is tricky.
The Solution: Regular one-to-one with clear and flexible agendas
For some, working from home is a huge adjustment. Empathize with your colleagues and be patient as everyone settles in.
Check-in with your team and employee from time to time with clear and flexible agendas. Ask your remote employees to reach out to you if there’s any confusion. You can also check on their schedule and deliverables, especially if there are any changes.
