Setting up a Distributed Workforce

Setting up a Distributed Workforce

With people taking control of when and where they complete work, Leaders need adequate Enterprise-level tools to help them manage a distributed workforce.

Communication tools are essential, but larger organisations need to go a step further. To efficiently and effectively organise and manage a distributed workforce, Department Managers and Team Leaders need a central platform that brings people together while providing them with visibility and control of work, processes and teams.


What do Enterprises need to thrive in this new world?

“Control over own time and a focus on outcomes is the key solution, along with good communication and ongoing dialogue. Peer-to-peer work is key, as well as a means of connecting across a shared communication space and getting beyond email-based workflows,” says McCracken.

Consider a work management platform: intelligent dashboards based around work and people, updated in real-time can enable Department Managers and Team Leaders to manage a distributed workforce no matter where they might be working from.

An Intelligent Work Management platform is not the only answer to the challenges at hand, but it absolutely helps a distributed workforce to work better, faster and more collaboratively. From balancing workloads across teams, to bringing together new, global working groups and providing intelligent data about work and teams that is accessible in seconds.
