It’s now more important than ever to be connected, especially during times of uncertainty. In light of recent developments, the All Points team grouped up for our March seminar earlier in the month before departing the office to work from home.
Led by COO and Executive Vice President Lauren Izaks and Senior Director Bailey Hewitt, the March seminar focused deeply on best work-from-home practices. It’s essential that we leverage the tools and systems we have in place to stay productive and connected. This seminar served as a great opportunity to implement our new collaborative workflow tool, Monday.com, for work-from-home purposes. We explored all the ways in which we can work together, organize our tasks and create consistency across the board by using the comments section, “My Week” function, email alerts, status labels and more.
As a tight-knit office, we understand the significance of communication, especially when it comes to the support of our clients and staying strong as a team. By aligning on best practices, our team members are better equipped to approach each day with a solid plan.
Here are a few tips we encourage those working from home to keep in mind:
- Get ready as if you were leaving for work (take a shower, get dressed, etc.)
- Create a dedicated workspace
- Maintain regular working hours and mealtimes
- Limit household distractions (electronics, roommates, family members, etc.)
- Stretch, stand and stay active – consider at-home workouts and fitness apps
The health and safety of our team members, families, clients and communities is of utmost importance. Maintaining social distance during this time allows us to keep ourselves and others healthy, and continue to provide effective integrated public relations support to our clients.
