Virtual Team Member Quick Tips

Maintain regular hours. Set a schedule and stick to it – most of the time. Having clear guidelines for when to work and when to end the workday help teleworkers maintain work-life balance.

Dress for the office. As tempting as it may be, don’t work in your pajamas. The simple act of getting dressed in a professional attire can mentally prepare you to tackle the day and your video conference calls.

Have regular check-ins with your coworkers. Whenever possible, schedule face-to-face meetings via video. It helps for your team to see you and for you to see them.

Make work accessible and easy to find. Save your coworkers time by ensuring your documents and resources are easy to find and access online. Research the best tools for collaborating remotely on share documents so everyone has the opportunity to review and comment on your work.

Your supervisor can help. If you have questions or concerns about teleworking, reach out to your supervisor for assistance. Your business wants you to be successful both in the office and when you are teleworking.
