Welo Customer Perspective — Guest Blog Post

By: Gabriel Sanabria | IT Ops Manager at Pizza Prime Franchising

Have you ever considered the possibility of transforming your company or team into a 100% remote work environment? Perhaps this idea was delayed by the belief that remote work is only reserved for modern technology-only startups. However, with the advancement of technology and changes in work dynamics, many companies are considering this possibility. At the same time, his decision is not simple and requires careful analysis to determine whether the company is well positioned to make this transition successfully.

It is known that remote work provides a series of benefits, such as flexible hours, reduced operational costs, increased productivity and the expansion of the global talent pool.

But how can I transition my company or team to remote to enjoy these benefits?

By using a simple triad, where three pillars support the thesis of transformation for a team.

If you answer yes to the three items below, you can prepare your team for the transition and start remote work:

  • ONE: Is it possible to perform tasks remotely? This first pillar involves evaluating the tasks and functions performed by employees to determine whether they can be performed outside the physical office environment. This requires a detailed analysis of the position’s responsibilities, identifying which can be performed remotely and which require physical presence.
  • TWO: Is my team digitally and technologically mature? The second pillar concerns whether your team knows how to deal with the digital tools necessary to support remote work. This includes reliable internet access, remote collaboration tools (such as video conferencing, file sharing and instant messaging), and robust data security systems to protect sensitive information.
  • THREE: Is my culture decentralized, agile and does it promote self-management? The third pillar addresses organizational culture and leadership capacity to support remote work. This requires establishing a culture of trust, autonomy and responsibility that empowers employees to manage their own activities. Furthermore, it is essential to develop remote management skills to ensure the productivity, engagement and well-being of employees who work remotely.

By meeting these three requirements, a company will be better positioned to transition to remote work effectively and sustainably.

If work is remote, it’s time to promote a basic digital transformation. Evaluate whether your company and your team use and know how to use digital technology tools in all aspects of the business, from customer service to internal resource management, efficiently.

Digital transformation improves operational efficiency, increases organizational agility, enhances the customer experience and drives innovation, enabling the company to remain competitive in an increasingly digitalized business environment.

In summary, after identifying whether the work can be remote, we are trying to connect people, tools and processes.

We know that, whether it is a traditional or modern company, in-person or remote, all success lies in the processes. I will write an article exclusively covering this subject and how to efficiently execute processes remotely, but I would like to finish by talking about a golden tip. When it comes to tools, I couldn’t fail to mention the best tool for remote work that I know.
