How to Efficiently Lead a Scattered Workforce

Today’s startups are exceedingly scattered operations. Instead of a centralized work environment such as an office, managers and employees are functioning remotely, using the web as a means to share and communicate. In many cases it’s ideal way to begin a business, as the talent pool is greatly expanded, payroll reduced, and the overhead associated with “brick and mortar” practically eliminated.

The academic world has been slow to catch up with this change, leaving many business majors unsure of how to go about leading a scattered workforce. While all situations are different and therefore require an individually crafted approach, the following suggestions for efficiently managing remote workers are sure to come in handy in all cases:

Utilize multipurpose management software

It’s hard enough for business leaders to keep track of operations in an office where everything is under their watchful eye, let alone when workers are across the map. There’s no shame in depending on comprehensive, multipurpose management software to get the job done. Some, such as Asure Software, include a human capital management platform. This gives business leaders access to detailed data about employee productivity. Click Here to Read Article …

7 Reasons to Send Your Workforce Home

working remotely

Have you ever considered whether your office, the physical evidence of your “success,” could actually be killing your business?

After 10 years of having a buzzing team around me, I recently sent every single one of my employees home and closed the physical office doors forever.

Why? We went remote.

I’d heard about remote working many times before — many of my entrepreneurial friends have been doing it for years.

But I had a whole bunch of preconceptions, fears and concerns about all of the different reasons why remote working wouldn’t work for my business. Click Here to Read Article …

How to Avoid Office Conflict

Conflict

Have you ever had to manage conflict at a job? When I was eighteen and fresh out of high school, I was offered my first job in which interacting with coworkers was a requirement.

I didn’t have much of anything to compare the experience to, but I sensed early on that there was some serious conflict brewing between the ladies I worked with. There was constant talking behind each other’s backs and harsh criticism was commonplace. Those who weren’t passive aggressive were just downright nasty.

But being the youngest in the bunch, I didn’t think it was my place to speak up and I feared that certain individuals would turn on me if I simply excused myself from the conflict. Click Here to Read Article …

Introverts: 6 Ways to Find Your Niche in the Office

Hide and seek _

It’s the same story everywhere you work: You can’t think on the fly during meetings or jump in during call-it-out brainstorming sessions. You feel drained after office events that involve being around a lot of people, no matter how nice they are. And you’re always pegged as the quiet one.

But you have ideas. Good ones. You just need to find a way to contribute.

If this sounds familiar, you may be an introvert. Depending on the website, book or study, introverts make up 25 percent to slightly more than 50 percent of the population. My own extensive research – in the form of an anonymous survey distributed on Facebook, Twitter, and my blog – had 60 percent of the 68 respondents identify themselves as introverts. If we were a political party, we’d win by a landslide.

Yet the odds are still stacked against us at work, where meetings and brainstorming sessions often rule the culture. “A lot of workplace things are organized in extroverted ways,” says Wendy Gelberg, author of The Successful Introvert: How to Enhance Your Job Search and Advance Your Career and owner of Gentle Job Search & Career Services.

But introverts can find their workplace niche, which will enable them to feel more comfortable – and excel – on the job.
