With the situation that we have experienced in recent months and the accelerated digitization of companies, a large part of the small, medium, and large companies must resort to teleworking.


Gamification

Note that one part may be to promote gamification. Large companies have gamified processes, but gamification is how you can apply game situations with your employees, collaborators, and work team. And this, as soon as everything starts to become a little more flexible, we will start to see it more often.

For example, the typical game dynamics that a team leaves, because every three months to play in an escape room, or to do different types of face-to-face dynamics, is acceptable for a small company.

It is important to do it from to time. When, even maybe once a year, when possible, and when the context allows it, but whenever we can apply the game to all this, we must do it, in the end, we all like to play, when you are a child you spend a lot of time playing, and we lose it as we get older.


Workflow

We must bet on a workflow dynamic. What is this in teleworking?

This happens to all of us the same, you must know yourself and say, "Hey, I know I'm good at this, and I'm not good at this," well, in your team you should do the same, because maybe Initially they have been assigned some tasks that they are doing.

Still, maybe they are not the best at it because they do not have the skills or do not like it, then it is vital to know how to detect that also to pivot.

In the end, success, or failure of a business, a marketing campaign will depend on how we can interconnect with people. Therefore, these four Techniques to help you motivate your team in teleworking are essential, and we must start applying them not tomorrow but today.
