Remote Networking: 6 Tips for Building Business Relationships

Your remote career deserves the same kind of intentional cultivation you would devote to the networking process if you were working onsite. However, the same tactics that help build a solid network in traditional office spaces may not always apply to the virtual work environment. 

remote networking
 

Remote Networking: 6 Tips for Building Business Relationships

One of the major fears many remote workers encounter is being left out of progress and passed up for promotion due to their flexible work schedule. Although isolation is a valid concern when working from home, this barrier can be overcome by utilizing targeted communication skills, integrating technology into your tools for collaboration, and deliberately building relationships with co-workers, managers, and other telecommuters.

Research conducted by Owl Labs found that companies who support remote work options reduce their turnover rate by 25 percent. This is a major benefit for employers as the onboarding process can cost 11,000 per employee. No matter what your company’s yearly revenue is, saving on overhead is a great benefit to any business. 

Related: Employee Retention: 9 Strategies for Retaining Top Remote Talent

To maintain the joy that comes with telecommuting, you have to feel as though you are making valuable contributions to your employer. Building successful business relationships through remote networking is one way to accomplish this.

Building business relationships in-office can already be a tricky task, especially for people who are reasonably introverted, so add remote work to the mix and navigating the networking landscape as a telecommuter can leave you feeling out in the weeds. However, neither your geographic location nor your personality type has to hold you back from making meaningful connections at work.

You can build your remote networking muscles by challenging yourself to step outside your comfort zone to incorporate interpersonal relationship building into your weekly work schedule.

1. Remote Networking Should Start at the Company Level

Although employees carry the bulk of the responsibility for making and maintaining connections at work, remote networking can be embedded into the company culture to help facilitate these connections. Companies who understand how to hire, onboard and train employees with the goal of retention are usually also skilled at giving employees opportunities to connect.

Remote networking opportunities can be as simple as inviting virtual employees to participate in company activities either face-to-face or by video conference. Companies who employ remote workers must also include their remote teams in recognition opportunities that help everyone in the company understand the value of all team members regardless of location.

Company newsletters and birthday celebrations should all include virtual employees. This provides a doorway for collaboration and remote networking that is not only valuable for the virtual workers but also for the entire company. If you have international workers on your team, consider holding some meetings at a time where they can be involved. Additionally, recording in office activities and sharing them with remote teams can help them feel as though they are a part of the action as well.

In the last two years, the availability of virtual reality has helped to spark a variety of solutions for more immersive, engaging meeting options for virtual teams. Virtual reality can help improve the remote networking opportunities for telecommuters by providing the sensation that everyone is in the same space. Brainstorming sessions can take on new life and color with 3D modeling.

2. Use Social Media to Build Community

Social media gets a bad rap for being a vortex of distraction, negativity, and instant gratification. However, if used responsibly, social media can help you network remotely in exciting ways. The key is to understand why and how you should use social media before jumping in. It is not necessary to be present on all platforms. It’s almost impossible to keep up with them all, and luckily you don’t have to try. Instead, look to engage with platforms that are most relevant to your field.

For example, if you are a graphic designer, Instagram could be an excellent launching pad for your work. Additionally, you can connect with other graphic designers around the world to uplift, share and pursue career-making opportunities. It is common to see professionals reach out to openings, conferences, and networking events for creative industries on Instagram.

In contrast, if you are a writer, Twitter may be a better place to concentrate your efforts. You can share your work, participate in Twitter chats, and find out about gatherings in your city. Having your pulse on the right beat it the first step to establishing roots as a member of a community.

Remote networking is a long-term process and when you first begin your social media engagement it may seem as though you are just posting into the void. Don’t give up! Stay consistent, engage with content that speaks to you, and you will find your tribe.

Another great way to network online as a remote worker is by subscribing and engaging in online groups. You can find groups on Slack, join Linkedin groups or subscribe to a weekly digital newsletter for professionals in your industry. No matter how you choose to participate the key is not to go in looking to gain information without being willing to give and support others. Community building online, like remote networking, is about mutual support.

3. Learn the Benefit of Connecting In-Person

Just because you are a remote worker, doesn’t mean you have to be confined to your home. It is important for both your professional and personal health to get out into the world to make connections the old-fashioned way. An added benefit of working remotely is the ability to use your commuting time to attend meaningful events. Meet Up is an excellent website boasting thousands of groups all over the country. You can join an industry-specific club near you to meet others doing similar work.

Check with any local colleges and universities to see if they have any ongoing professional development courses, conferences or events. The campus is not just for students, many educational centers also act as centers of information and continued learning for the entire community. Taking a course on campus to boost your skills or joining a forum on a topic you are interested in, even if it is not directly related to your field is an excellent way to meet like-minded individuals. It is a good idea to grow your social network and build business relationships across industries. Understanding how other markets perform and operate can help you gain valuable insights into your own work.

Your local library is another great resource for networking as a telecommuter. Some libraries host conferences free of charge and open to the community. Remote networking does not have to mean only networking virtually. If you make a connection in person, you can develop and grow your business relationship online.

4. Understand How to Build a Relationship With Your Boss

Building relationships outside of your company are crucial. Nonetheless, your in-house relationships help you to stay motivated to succeed in your current position and provide opportunities for advancement. The relationship you build with your manager is key to working efficiently. The more you build this connection, the easier it is to ask questions, gain insight into the company vision and create a path for possible promotion.

Whether you’ve been a member of your team for a month or a year, if you don’t feel confident in your connection with your manager, you can take steps to improve it. Networking remotely with your boss can feel uncomfortable, particularly as in-office workers have much more access to the boss. Even if your company is 100 percent remote, there can be barriers to effective communication.

Break down these barriers by taking the initiative to reach out to your manager. Everyone has different needs for feedback, however, you don’t have to wait until a problem arises to reach out to your boss. If you do not have an established meeting date at least bi-weekly. Send an email or video message to your supervisor to see how you can go about establishing a regular meeting date.

If you already have a set meeting a few times per month, take better advantage of this opportunity. Instead of only focusing on project progress and areas of improvement. Ask questions that engage your boss in a dialogue about the goals of the team and the company as a whole. Establish your ability to see how your work fits into the bigger picture. If you don’t have the knowledge, do your research first and ask clarifying questions.

Additionally, don’t forget to acknowledge the human side of your manager. Inquire about their weekend, send a holiday card and show genuine interest when personal information is shared. The line of decorum will vary depending on your company culture. Every workspace has different codes of conduct and it is important to understand and adhere to these codes when professionally engaging with your boss.

5. Discover How To Start Meaningful Conversations with In-office Co-workers

One of the easiest ways to engage in-office employees is using a group messaging tool. If your company does not utilize Skype for Business, Slack, or another form of instant communication, suggest an option you are familiar with to your HR contact. Using messaging technology helps build a sense of being present regardless of physical location. 

Both project-related chat and small talk are important for building business relationships. Human beings are social and because most full-time employees spend the majority of their time working, a little work-approved fun is necessary. Share a cute meme or invite co-workers to join an online game during the lunch hour. Design a get-to-know-you survey or start a virtual book club. There are endless ways to provide an environment to connect across the barrier of location.

6. Build Community with your Fellow Remote Workers

Remote networking is a tool to connect in-person employees to telecommuters as well as remote works to each other. If you have co-workers spread over the state, country or world, it can be difficult to keep tabs on everyone. You can build support to ward off isolation by regularly engaging other remote workers in your company. Start a blog, online group or forum where you can share stories, experiences, and uplifting material specifically for the virtual work experience.

Take the time to get to know at least one person you haven’t had a detailed conversation with. Ask them about their work, where they live and what remote work is like for them. It may be a bit scary taking the first step, but the more your practice, the easier it becomes to be a remote networker. Before you know it, your virtual network will be blossoming with meaningful relationships.

Take the First Step

It is always intimidating to try new things, especially in the work environment. However, taking calculated risks to increase your network is always a leap worth taking. Start your journey towards more enriching connections today. Join Virtual Vocations, engage with our tips for job seekers and leave a comment or two!

10 Tips for Successfully Working from Home with a Significant Other

Research shows couples who work together stay together. Here are 10 tips to help you and your significant other maintain a balance in your personal and co-working relationship.

10 Tips for Successfully Working from Home with a Significant Other

Working with the person you love always sounds like a dream, but it can quickly become a nightmare. However, the rewards tend to outweigh the risks. The Boston Globe shares research results proving that couples who work together show signs of increased job and family satisfaction.

Telecommuting with your significant other definitely puts unique pressures on your relationship, but it can be well worth the effort. Use these tips to help you and your partner develop a healthy and functional remote work environment at home.

1. Separate Business and Pleasure

The golden rule for working with a significant other is to keep work and home life separate. However, this is easier said than done, especially when you work at home. For starters, keep all business finances separate from personal accounts. For example, use a business checking account or credit card for work-related expenses. Resist the temptation to dip into family funds to pay for new office equipment or use company credit cards to buy gifts for the kids.

Also, try as much as possible to keep personal disagreements out of your home office. Consider addressing relationship issues as you would coworker disputes and be as civil and productive as possible to resolve the conflict. You may even need to work in separate spaces until you sort out personal differences.

“You are everything.” – Jim, The Office

2. Practice Smart Role Play

Your roles at home might be different than your roles in business, which can sometimes cause tension and control struggles. However, to be successful, you must focus on each other’s strengths. The more honest you are with yourselves, and the more you play to your strengths, the stronger you are as a couple.

For example, if one of you is better at crunching numbers, let that person lead budgeting and financial planning efforts. If one is better at technology, allow that person to manage software updates and Wi-Fi troubleshooting. Even if you don’t work for the same company, you can still work together as a team.

Also, divide household chores fairly so that you’re both responsible for maintaining your home. Create a schedule and assign tasks so that responsibilities are clear.

“So, it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day.” – Noah, The Notebook

3. Get a Room

It’s challenging to share a home and workspace with a significant other, especially when you have completely different work styles and preferences. For example, one of you may love working in cozy pajamas all day, while the other prefers to clean up and put on professional attire.

To help establish boundaries and maintain personal space, create a separate work area in a spare room, oversized closet, or basement. If there’s not enough real estate for each of you to have your own office, then either commit to being officemates or create a work schedule so that each of you gets some quiet time alone.

However, there’s no need to feel like you’re stuck at home. Take your laptop to a coffee shop once in a while or consider a co-working space as an alternative work environment. Even some time in the backyard or on the front porch can give you enough space to concentrate.

Allow your co-working relationship to help you develop a stronger bond and learn more about each other. Enjoy having a telecommuting buddy to chat with when work gets challenging.

“I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.” – Baby, Dirty Dancing

4. Use Safe Words

Let’s be real: You’re going get on each other’s nerves from time to time. Whenever one of you is annoyed or at a tipping point, try using a safe word to let the other person know you need a break. For example, if your significant other whistles while she works, give her some time to play her tune, but use your safe word to let her know when you’ve reached your limit.

Think of funny words to break the tension, such as “catawampus” or “nincompoop.” You can also choose a word that represents a fond memory, like the name of a city you visited or the main character of the first movie you watched together. Find an inside joke that keeps things light while letting the other person know you need a bit of a break from the shenanigans.

“In my opinion, the best thing you can do is find someone who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you.” – Mac, Juno

5. Engage in Conversation

Co-working with your significant other can leave little interest for conversation at supper time, but it’s important to maintain personal interactions outside of work. A study by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia found that married couples who have dedicated couple time at least once per week are much happier in their marriages, which mean they are less likely to divorce or separate.

As a telecommuting couple, you can spice things up a bit by going on lunch dates and hitting up happy hour. If you have kids and don’t want to leave the house, have a picnic in the backyard or subscribe to a meal delivery service and prepare delicious dinners together.

Stay in tune with each other’s thoughts, feelings, and interests. Recognize that there may be more to learn about each other, even though you seem to spend every waking moment together.

Strong relationships take work. So, when you clock out from your job, you need to clock into your personal relationship to ensure your home life is balanced.

“In case I forget to tell you later, I had a really good time tonight.” – Vivian, Pretty Woman

6. Give Each Other Downtime

When conversation gets annoying, or you need some space, give each other time each day to be alone. If you live in a small place, try having one of you go into a separate room and shut the door to relax. Maybe you can even schedule a few hours each week to be completely alone. For example, one of you gets the whole place to yourself on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, while the other gets Monday and Friday mornings to romp around solo. Figure out what works for you and respect each other’s need for privacy.

“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she had to walk into mine.” – Rick, Casablanca

7. Stay on Top of Each Other

Be each other’s accountability buddy so that you optimize your time and do excellent work. Keep each other accountable for achieving goals. Help each other pick up the slack when things get busy. Listen to each other’s needs and struggles and be there to help support.

As an exercise that can help both your career paths, have a career planning meeting where you each set goals and devise routes to achievement. Post the plans on the wall for both of you to see, track milestones, and leave encouraging feedback. It always helps to have a trusted accomplice on your path toward success. Plus, witnessing someone else working toward a goal can motivate you to work toward your own.

“You make me want to be a better man.” – Melvin, As Good as It Gets

8. Enjoy the Closeness

Most working couples spend at least eight hours apart from each other each day. Factor in time spent commuting to and from the office, occasional overtime, after-work errands and social events, and much-needed personal time, such as showering and sleep, and you’re looking at just a few hours each day of quality togetherness.

Work-at-home couples have the advantage of developing stronger bonds by being physically present more of the time. How wonderful it is to spend so much time together and truly venture through life arm in arm! Be grateful for the comradery and remember how awesome it is, even when you’re at each other’s throats.

“If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.” – David, Love Actually

9. Take a Couples Retreat

Take a break to enjoy life outside of work. Use some of your hard-earned cash to treat yourself to a couple’s trip. Remember, as telecommuters you have the luxury of taking your work with you wherever they go. So, if you want to travel while earning income, bring your laptops while you visit new cities.

If you have different ideas of what it means to have fun while traveling, take a day or two for solo exploration. Make it into a game by seeing who can check as many sites off on their list, eat the strangest food, or find the funniest random fact. Share pictures and stories at the end of the day, then snuggle up and enjoy adventuring with a companion.

If you don’t want to travel too far from home, spend a staycation in the downtown area of the nearest city. Check out museums, attend a concert, or stay in those fluffy white sheets all day and order room service.

“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” Harry, When Harry Met Sally

10. Stop and Smell the Roses

Always take time to pay attention to the little things that matter, as they tend to matter the most. Force yourselves to slow down and take breaks from work. A study by Staples Business Advantage shows that 78% of workers feel more productive throughout the day when they take breaks. Use the free time to connect as a couple or simply enjoy a few moments of peace by yourself.

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.” – Christian, Moulin Rouge

Want to Take Things to the Next Level?

If you want to give your work-at-home relationship that extra special something, leave sweet love notes at each other’s desk, send each other cute emails on occasion, or get flowers delivered by surprise. Think about the kind gestures you’d make if your significant other worked in a traditional office and incorporate such romantic acts at home to keep your relationship thriving.

If daily romance isn’t really your thing, then stick with open communication as the primary key to a healthy relationship. Hopefully, you feel comfortable enough to be honest about your feelings and work through conflict constructively. Accommodate each other’s work style preferences and need for personal space as much as possible. Since you know each other through and through, practice accepting each other with all your flaws and features.

If you can leverage each other’s strengths, work through your differences, and support each other in work and play, then you’ll make unstoppable telecommuting team.

12 Ways to Reignite the Spark for Your Career

Have you fallen out of love with your career? Before you throw in the towel, check out these tips on how to reignite the career spark that’s been extinguished by job burnout.

12 Ways to Reignite the Spark for Your Career

Americans work more hours on average than most countries in this world. Though the American work ethic is admirable, it often leads to burnout, which affects employee health and business productivity. Burnout can cause insomnia, chronic fatigue, illness, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression, cynicism, and detachment, according to psychologist Sherrie Bourg Carter.

You won’t see this list of mental and physical side effects in any job description or disclaimer. Therefore, it’s up to you to recognize burnout when it happens and prevent making decisions you’ll later regret.

Common symptoms of burnout include:

  • Lack of enthusiasm for what you used to enjoy
  • Impaired concentration
  • Forgetfulness
  • Increased irritability
  • Missed deadlines and poor-quality work
  • Frequent headaches, colds, or gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Negative self-talk and a sense of hopelessness

When you feel your career flame extinguishing, take a step back before calling it quits. Use these tactics to help rekindle the fire.

1. Figure Out What Changed

First, think about when you stopped enjoying your line of work. Whether it’s been a few weeks or a couple of years, try to estimate the start of your dissatisfaction. Then, consider other aspects of your life that may have influenced a change in overall happiness. Sometimes, when one area of your life is out of whack, it affects all the other areas, and it’s hard to tell which is the real source of the problem.

If you’re sure your career is the culprit, then attempt to figure out the more specific issues. For example, you may realize that:

  • You’re bored
  • You don’t like the people you work with
  • You feel unheard or that you cannot influence change
  • Your boss is overbearing
  • You feel constrained
  • You feel like you’re not growing
  • You don’t make as much money as you’d like
  • You don’t have enough time flexibility or vacation days
  • You’re sick of traffic and being away from home

Write down your own list of reasons why you’re unhappy with work. Then, ask yourself: Are any of the reasons within my control? Some issues, such as an overbearing boss or frustrating traffic, are tough to mitigate. However, sometimes all it takes is an attitude adjustment or a constructive conversation with management to make sure you’re getting what you need.

2. Remember the Good Times

Consider what you like about your job and what made you start that line of work. There had to be some reason you ventured down that path. Were you attracted to the income, fast-paced work environment, or challenging assignments? Think about the positive aspects of what do you and how your work makes you feel proud and accomplished.

After a quick brainstorm, consider whether the good times outweigh all the negative aspects. What would it take to make those good times happen again? Is it possible to conjure up the energy that you had when you first started? Maybe complacency reared its ugly head and you need to put in a little grunt work to get the excitement flowing again.

3. Kiss and Make Up

Okay, don’t actually kiss your coworkers or send kissy face emoticons through email, but attempt to amend any lingering conflict. Unresolved issues can create heavy emotional burdens, even in remote work environments. They also tend to compound and seep into the details of everyday interactions.

Is it possible that you still enjoy your job and that your beef is with someone in the office? If you interact or work closely with someone you can’t stand, practice letting go of past quarrels and maintaining a sense of professionalism. View your interactions as a means to an end and try not to take things personally. If you’re not going attempt to resolve workplace conflict using a formal process, then just focus on your work instead of the emotional aspects attached to interactions. Make sure you do the very best job possible and maintain a friendly, mature demeanor so that problems don’t escalate.

4. Seek Professional Guidance

Get a fresh perspective on your career and industry by networking with professionals in your field. Attend a conference, research individuals on LinkedIn, or join a professional organization and attend local chapter meetings. When you get an opportunity, ask people questions like:

  • Why did you choose this career?
  • What motivates you every day?
  • What personal benefits does your job afford you?
  • How does this line of work help you make a difference in the world?
  • How does this job help you structure your desired lifestyle?
  • What are your biggest challenges?
  • What do you do when you hit a wall or feel like you’re at a dead end?

The more insight you get from others, the more motivated you might be to stay the course and find new ways to invigorate your enthusiasm.

5. Renew Your Vows

There’s always something new to learn in any field of work. Maybe you could use a new challenge or something specific to work towards to feel motivated. Consider adding some letters to your name by earning an advanced degree or certification. The easiest way to learn is through online classes that you can take in your spare time.

Ask your employer about tuition reimbursement or the potential for promotion with additional education. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that having a master’s degree in business, education, healthcare, or STEM-related fields can increase income from 14 to 89 percent. Therefore, the more you invest in your education, the more valuable you are to your employer and the more marketable you are to recruiters if you decide to change jobs.

6. Focus on the Journey

No matter what you do for a living, some aspects of work are just plain dull and burdensome. However, if you measure your job based on all the things you don’t like doing, you miss the big picture.

Think about your overall career path, not just the job itself. What does your job afford you? Perhaps you’re able to provide for your family, take yearly trips to Europe or South America, or save for a down payment on a home.

Sometimes, professionals choose careers not because they are passionate about the work, but because they can master the job and effectively use it to support and fulfill other aspects of their lives.

7. Get a Hobby

Though it makes sense to turn your passions into a career, it’s a lot harder than it seems, and it doesn’t guarantee that you won’t burn out. Instead of crafting an ideal career path that fully expresses your soul, consider using your job to build capital to support your passions.

For example, you can start a small business on the side, fund a non-profit, create art to sell online, or write screenplays and shoot short films. It’s possible that you need something else beyond work to keep your excitement and energy levels up and give your career a whole new purpose.

8. Take a Break

When is the last time you truly took a vacation? Sometimes, the only way to recover from burnout is to take a break. Even people who love their jobs need time to relax and reset. If planning a trip sounds more like work than fun, then take a long weekend at home to binge watch shows or tackle that growing stack of books on your nightstand. When your fingers start twitching from inactivity, do something creative or physically challenging.

No matter how you choose to kick back, turn off all email notifications and shut off the computer. Allow yourself to disconnect from the office and give your complete attention to other areas of your life. Hopefully, a little time away will rejuvenate your spirits and provide clarity.

career

 

9. Improve the Way You Work

It’s not just your boss or the workload that determines your level of happiness. The way in which you work also influences your overall job satisfaction. Find ways to be more efficient, produce better quality work, and automate mindless tasks. Attempt to improve relationships with coworkers by engaging more in conversation. Compliment someone on a job well done or offer encouragement to someone having a rough day. Boosting other people’s morale often increases your own.

If you’re not already telecommuting, maybe it’s time to bring your work home. Talk to your employer about working from home one day per week to start. If all goes well, add more telecommuting days until you feel satisfied. Many professionals enjoy their careers more when they have flexibility and time to care for their family and personal needs.

10. Put Your Work to Bed

Make sure you actually clock out at the end of each day. Despite the marvels of cloud computing and the ease of communication, you need to create clear boundaries to prevent working nonstop. Telecommuters especially need boundaries, since work and home share the same space.

Remember that working from home doesn’t mean you’re available round the clock. It helps to create a regime so that you dedicate time to both work and personal life.

11. Practice Safe Stress

Little bits of stress can help keep your engine fueled throughout the day, but too much clogs your pipes and shuts down your brain. Based on numerous research studies on workplace stress, The American Institute of Stress found that the leading causes of job stress include:

  • Workload
  • Issues with people
  • Work-life balance
  • Job security

To prevent workplace stressors from influencing your job satisfaction and health, practice stress management techniques like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, or exercising. If you telecommute, make a point to leave the house every day for a 30-minute walk around the neighborhood. Drink plenty of water, get adequate sleep, and actively manage the thoughts inside your head. Flush out negative self-talk and replace self-destructive thoughts with positive statements.

Your health is the cornerstone of your life. When you take good care of your body and mind, you naturally feel refreshed, energized, and confident.

12. Play or Pivot

If your daily job tasks are somewhat lackluster, find ways to make them more fun. Play your favorite music and challenge yourself to get as much work done as possible during each song. Shoot for fewer errors or higher efficiency. Give yourself a prize when you accomplish your goal.

However, if little games and other tactics prove ineffective, consider how you can use your skills to pivot in your career. For example, if your work is primarily focused on data entry, consider pivoting to medical coding. If you’re up to your ears with sales or customer service, consider teaching online classes to share your hard-earned knowledge with aspiring business developers.

Pivoting doesn’t necessarily mean you have start over or make a dramatic shift. It can simply mean that you find other ways to leverage your experience so that you learn new skills and enhance your overall career.

Keep the Fire Burning

The key takeaway is to think things through before jumping ship. Reflect on the good old days and what initially drew you to your line of work. Consider the bigger picture and how your work contributes to the whole, such as making other people’s lives easier and affording you a comfortable lifestyle. It’s quite possible that you still enjoy your career, but there are aspects of your daily job that you need to improve. Once you identify the areas you can control, take action and attempt to resolve the discrepancies.

If you’re still down in the dumps and nothing seems to work, by all means, try something new. Maybe you need a change of scenery or a new challenge. Check out the Virtual Vocations Job Database for ideas on where to pivot. Who knows? Maybe after searching for a new career, you’ll realize you already have the job of your dreams.

Baby Boomers and Millennials: 7 Tips for Closing Generational Remote Work Gaps

Can millennials and baby boomers work well together on remote teams? If you’re concerned about generational differences among telecommuting employees, read through these tips on key areas that affect remote team productivity and employee job satisfaction.

baby boomers

Baby Boomers and Millennials: 7 Tips for Closing Generational Remote Work Gaps

As the millennial population surpasses baby boomers in the workforce, companies must learn to accommodate differences in the way each group perceives work and how they perform within remote teams. Key areas to consider include the following:

  • Communication style
  • Technology skills
  • Core values
  • Work ethic
  • Work style
  • Professional development interests

Though Americans generally work longer throughout their lives, putting off retirement or supplementing retirement with telecommuting jobs, millennials set a new tone for the remote landscape. Managers of dispersed teams need to understand how generations differ to help create an effective work environment.

The Millennial generation includes individuals born between 1981 and 1997, while baby boomers refer to those born between 1946 and 1964.

Perception of the world is different for each group with politics, war, education, parental involvement, resource availability, and technological advancements as main influencers of personal and professional ideology.

Neither group is right or wrong, better or worse, but their views on careers, leisure, and the overall American Dream are subject to different upbringings and external factors that help shape their thinking.

Despite any inherent differences, closing generational gaps between millennials and baby boomers in the remote workplace can be simple. If you’re a telecommuting manager or operate a virtual company, here are seven tips to blend generations and develop strong, productive remote teams.

1. Put Generational Assumptions Aside

First and foremost, resist the urge to judge your team members’ abilities based on their age group. For example, avoid assuming that baby boomers are technologically incompetent workaholics and that millennials are lazy with a strong sense of entitlement. Both are overly simplified profiles and often false stereotypes.

Telecommuting baby boomers must have technical aptitude, otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to telecommute effectively. Likewise, millennials must have a solid work ethic, otherwise, they wouldn’t lead successful remote careers.

The more you let stereotypes and generational assumptions rule your thinking, the less effective you’ll be at managing your team. So, when you interview new candidates or introduce a new system or process, clear your mind of erroneous expectations and observe and accept your team members as they are.

2. Hire Professional Employees

Hire employees who exude professionalism in their resumés, cover letters, emails, and interviews. Individuals with overall professionalism are more likely to get along with others and handle remote workplace conflict like mature adults. If you select employees strictly based on their technical qualifications or work experience, you may not hire the right candidates for the team.

When putting together a dispersed team, think about character traits that remote workers need to be successful. Consider characteristics such as:

  • Punctuality
  • Thoughtfulness
  • Adaptability
  • Confidence
  • Dedication
  • Enthusiasm

Next, envision how your ideal team interacts. Are they serious or laughing? Are they chatting casually using an online app, or are they sending carefully proofread, formal emails? Do they figure out problems on their own or turn to you for intervention? Combine your list of characteristics with the job qualifications and use a more holistic approach when building a remote team.

If you already have a solid group, evaluate new candidates based on how they’d fit in or add value to the current vibe. Also, ask your staff what they feel the team lacks and needs in a new employee. Take your workers feedback into consideration to help narrow down your choices.

3. Build Trust Through Clear Communication

Communication style directly relates to overall work style, not necessarily generational differences. For example, some younger professionals may take a more casual, friendly approach to communication, while some seasoned workers may stick to a formal, restrained approach. In such a stereotypical scenario, baby boomers may view millennials as unprofessional and inappropriate, while millennials interpret baby boomers as stuffy and unapproachable. Of course, the reverse can be true.

Remote managers may need to translate on occasion and serve as a medium for individuals to converse. However, the goal isn’t to change anyone’s personality or conversation style. Instead, managers should aim to create an environment where workers learn to communicate clearly and feel comfortable asking each other for clarification. If an employee’s communication skills are subpar due to a lack of overall etiquette, then you may need to intervene or establish communication guidelines.

In addition, some employees may rely heavily on web and mobile apps for communication, while others may prefer phone conversions and emails. Whatever tools you implement, make sure everyone on the team understands how to use them and how they afford better remote collaboration.

4. Look for Strengths to Fill the Gaps

Each one of your team members has strengths and weaknesses. It’s often assumed that millennials are naturally fluent in all things technology and baby boomers have a steep learning curve. However, there are plenty of older workers who know and use trending technologies and plenty of younger professionals who struggle with basic computing.

Instead of making assumptions about your employees, learn all their major strengths and weaknesses so that you uncover knowledge gaps and can use internal resources effectively. For example, one team member may have expertise in a business theory or process, while another may be more skilled at using technology to complete tasks. Find ways to combine the skills of each so that the entire team understands both the fundamental process and the technical application.

5. Streamline Work Processes

Sometimes technology interferes with team productivity, which can cause conflict among members with different work styles. Though it’s fun to use the latest apps and devices, it’s unwise to implement a tool simply because other companies are using it. Focus more on creating processes explicitly tailored to your team, and make sure everyone understands their role and assigned tasks. Look for bottlenecks in your workflow caused by overcomplicated procedures.

Then, discuss ways to remove barriers so that team members can work together more effectively. Research tools that align with your employees’ needs and ask for their input. Empower all team members to suggest improvements and solutions. If you limit input to one person, one job title, or one generation, you forsake innovation and critical team-building opportunities.

6. Adjust to Work Style Differences

Telecommuting attracts millennials and baby boomers alike because of the opportunity for more work-life balance and time flexibility. However, your team members may value work-life balance and time flexibility in different ways. For example, some employees may still want to work a traditional nine-to-five schedule in the comfort of their own homes, while others may want to work evenings, weekends, or in two-hour intervals throughout the day. Some nomadic workers may want to take their work with them around the globe, while others may choose to rent a desk in a coworking space.

As much as your business and line of work allows, give your employees the ability to work in their preferred, optimal way. Keep the team aligned by scheduling regular meetings and providing an online platform for conversation. Just avoid micromanaging schedules as much as possible so that remote workers can achieve their career and lifestyle goals. Offering more flexibility will increase employee job satisfaction and strengthen employee retention.

If you’re not convinced, over half of Gallup’s State of the American Workplace Report respondents confess that they’re willing to leave their current job for another that offers more time flexibility. Employees have responsibilities and interests outside of work, so they want to work for companies who offer more freedom.

baby boomers

7. Grow Together as a Team

Many companies host internal mentoring programs enabling baby boomers to take millennials underwing and offer professional wisdom and career guidance. Though one-on-one mentoring can be effective and helpful for both parties, it breaks down when the mentor and mentee don’t share the same outlook or lifestyle aspirations. Plus, such a partnering may reinforce generational stereotypes and create unnecessary frustration among team members.

If your company or team institutes a mentoring program for younger professionals, try as much as possible to help match employees who share similar work-life goals. For example, pair up work-at-home parents, employees who care for relatives with special care considerations, or ambitious workaholics who strive for leadership positions.

Find commonalities among your employees’ work-life preferences and use their reasons for telecommuting as criteria for matching. Though seasoned workers can certainly provide insight from their experiences, avoid relying solely on age when selecting potential pairs.

Of course, you can avoid the age issue completely by developing a simple, all-inclusive, team learning program where everyone contributes knowledge and insight. This way, there’s no overbearing teacher-student relationship, yet everyone can share something they know and learn something new.

Next Steps for Your Business

Closing generational gaps between millennials and baby boomers in the remote workspace doesn’t require in-depth research and a complicated initiative. It simply requires you to understand your workers and what they value.

Learn what your Millennial employees seek in a telecommute job and find ways to create a work environment that attracts and retains younger professionals. Simultaneously, understand that more baby boomers re-enter the workplace or delay full retirement and want jobs that offer greater freedom and flexibility. However, avoid spending too much time, energy, and resources on addressing stereotypes and instead, focus on the fundamentals of effective virtual team management.

To get an idea of what most telecommuters value, check out the Virtual Vocations National Work and Family Month (NWFM) Survey results. One significant finding is that about 83% of workers are willing to accept less pay for a telecommuting option. That’s how important freedom and work-life balance are to remote workers of all ages.

Online Courses: 4 Tips for Taking Your Remote Career to the Next Level

Through online courses and certifications, telecommuters easily maintain a competitive edge. Read on for four tips on how taking affordable online courses can be a profitable investment in your remote career.

Online Courses: 4 Tips for Talking Your Remote Career to the Next Level

Employers look for remote workers who show initiative and who can adapt to changing work conditions. Part of adapting is staying current on trends and technology in your field. One of the best ways to do this is through online courses and seminars.

There are hundreds of online courses and resources available to help you learn new skills, refresh your knowledge in your specialty areas, and master technical abilities. Before you decide on your approach to online learning, you need to be clear on what your expectations are, how much time you can devote to online courses, and what skills are most valuable to your remote career field.

Follow these four tips for making the most out of online courses for career advancement:

1. Understand the Value of Online Courses

Much like online and remote work, digital education provides a de-concentration of knowledge allowing anyone with an Internet connection to develop new skills and compete for high-paying positions.

Online education makes education accessible to people who were previously left out due to geographic and economic barriers.

The availability of online courses is a prominent characteristic of our global economy, were competition takes on new meaning in the workforce, particularly for remote workers.

Some experts predict that in the next few decades there will be a transformation of education whereby online learning will function as the primary source of education for both professionals and students. However, this does not have to be an overwhelming fact. You can use the rise in online education to your advantage.

There are numerous ways to gain profitable skills without having to complete an entire degree program or balance campus visits with your work schedule. One of the most important skills in the current work culture is continual learning. No matter what generation you belong to, you can advance your skills and your career with the right online courses.

2. Define Your Goals

Pursuing an online degree isn’t for everyone. You may benefit from one online course, a conference live-stream or webinar series, or a short certification program.

Before you enroll, you must take the time to figure out what skills you need to acquire. This will largely be determined by your professional growth plan. Depending on your employment status, you can develop a strategic map of your professional goals that will act as a guide to your educational pursuits.

Advice for Permanent Remote Employees

If you currently work from home, you have proven you can manage responsibilities, communication, and deadlines while working independently. Many of the skills that have helped you become a successful telecommuter are the same skills you can enhance to gain a promotion or take on additional responsibilities within your company.

Seek opportunities to get to know coworkers within other departments. Are you intrigued by the marketing team’s efforts to perfect their campaigns? Have you been learning a few programming languages and want to know more about the development team? Reach out to coworkers and other colleagues. The best way to build authentic connections at work is to show genuine interest.

Understanding the big picture of how your company operates is the best way to decide where you’d like to make a contribution. Once you are clear on where you want to go, it is much easier to devise a plan of action.

Write down the key skills, certifications or education you will need to reach your goal. If you have a mentor or member of your professional network currently working in a similar position to the one you want to take on, share your goals with that person. Getting feedback on your approach can save you from spending time and money on certifications or online courses that may not be essential.

Advice for Telecommuting Freelancers

If you are a freelancer who wants to expand your business, there are several ways you can approach your goal through online courses. Before you take action to transition from full-time freelancer to business owner, take the time to write down your goals.

  • Are you looking for more financial freedom?
  • Do you want to hire additional workers?
  • Are you interested in traveling more or fostering more influential connections?

Knowing your intentions is an important first step. It is inevitable that short-term goals will change along the way, but a strong foundation rooted in a long-term goal will help you develop a concrete, measurable plan.

Connections are just as crucial for freelancers as they are for permanent employees. Having a strong network, whether in the form of an online community or an in-person group, can facilitate valuable resources for brainstorming ideas and gaining practical advice from other business owners.

Look for an entrepreneur in your circle who has accomplished something you’d like to achieve. Be sure to do your research and become informed on any articles or talks they have given if you don’t have a personal relationship. Many successful business owners are open to dialogue when you approach them with ideas on how you can both benefit. Consider interning or helping with a project in exchange for their expertise.

3. Find Online Courses

Once you are clear on why you want to pursue additional training, you can begin the research process into available online courses.

Some courses are designed to be short and provide basic introductory information into a topic such as business management, JavaScript or content marketing. Meanwhile, other courses provide a series of lessons over a period of months that can help you master a topic of interest.

Depending on your career goals, you may want to consider paying a fee for a certification in your topic of choice. If you do decide to go this route, it is crucial that you choose a program with credibility.

The following online course companies are highly respected by businesses and professionals across the country and internationally.  Each offers different benefits for you to consider before choosing the best platform for advancing your remote career through online courses.

Coursera

Coursera is an online course and certification company that has partnerships with hundreds of universities to provide quality education in subjects from hospitality management to virtual reality. One of the best perks of Coursera is the course forums. The forums provide opportunities for students to discuss each week’s topics and build a community of learners.

Some courses on the site can be taken individually, while others are bundled together in a certification program. Another perk of Coursera is their payment options. There are some courses provided free of charge, whereas others require payment. You can choose to take a course and master the content for free or pay for a certification. Additionally, Coursera offers a membership option that allows you to take as many courses as you’d like. Coursera is an excellent option if you want to explore a few topics before deciding on which one to dive into long-term.

Lynda.com

Lynda is one of the most well-known delivery options for online courses. The online education company, which was purchased by LinkedIn in 2015, focuses on creative skills, technology, and business courses.

Recognizable names like NBC, Adobe, and Patagonia have used lynda.com courses for professional development. Some courses also feature forums for students to interact and end with a certificate. One of the benefits of Lynda is that they offer courses for both beginners to experts in fields such as web design and software development. As a resource for tech professionals, they offer high-quality learning at reasonable prices. All Lynda courses come with a fee, however, they offer a monthly membership for unlimited learning.

Treehouse

Treehouse focuses completely on tech training, offering courses in a wide range of computer programming and web design sub-fields. One of the benefits of choosing a company with a specialty is that you have access to a community of learners who are all dedicated to your industry. Additionally, Treehouse caters to people who want to develop skills and put them to use in the workplace asap.

Treehouse offers resources for gaining tech jobs with the skills you develop. Their courses combine video tutorials with hands-on assignments and quizzes that help ensure you are making progress. The course options are available for tech newbies to experts. The company also offers a monthly fee for learning as courses tend to be much longer, helping you to not only learn a topic but master it.

Udacity

Udacity is a unique platform in that it is more of a marketplace than a course deliverer. They host courses from experts all over the world, allowing them to present their material for students to develop skills in a vast array of topics. Udacity offers courses in music and photography as well as teacher training and information technology. One of Udacity’s benefits is their immense range of online courses as well as the availability of affordable course options.

4. Make a Commitment

Once you find the perfect course, you have to be committed to carving out the time for your education regularly. It is easy to sign up for a course only to realize two weeks in that you haven’t completed any of the assignments. However, this will not give you the results you want. Making an investment in your professional future requires discipline. Consider making a schedule for your courses three times a week.

Take time not only to read and watch your online course material but also to engage with other course participants through a provided forum. If your course doesn’t offer this feature, you can find community through online blogs, Twitter chats, Facebook groups or other platforms.

To get even more out your online courses, use what you learn each week by starting your own blog, working on a portfolio or journaling about what you’ve learned.

Once you complete your course, celebrate your accomplishment! It takes weeks or months of hard work and perseverance to balance educational advancement with work responsibilities and your personal life. When you finally succeed you should take the time to acknowledge the investment you are making in your future. Completing an online course is a great way to boost your confidence to take on the next phase of your career. With the initiative and discipline you will build through online education, there is nothing you can’t accomplish.
