Any company with offices and staff will understand the importance of communication and cooperation. These two factors are indispensable for a well-functioning flow. Modern Working can help here. In this blog you will read how to smoothly go through the transition phase of Modern Working.
The importance of Modern Work
In today's society where everything must be quicker and safer, it is good to take a critical look at how exactly the work process is organised in the office. Although the yellow notebooks and paper diaries are probably long gone, it is also advisable to take a close look at the current system. After all, don't we all want everything to run smoothly and up to date? At Lime Networks we work with Modern Work. And we can tell you, we are hooked! Are you curious whether Modern Work is something for your office or have you even considered the choice? Then these are useful things to know.
Getting used to it step by step
Every process starts with making a start and there is very little that goes smoothly in one day. That is also why it is important to take up Modern Working step by step. Fortunately, Microsoft is there to guide you step by step. Microsoft also recommends starting with chatting and video conferencing in Microsoft Teams. Once you start getting used to this, it's time for the next step: lifting and shifting your current data into logical teams and channels. Next, start working with apps like Planner, ToDo and Streams.
It is also time to link your external platforms to the Microsoft platform. Do you, for example, already work with Asana, Trello, Jira or Adobe Cloud? You can include all of these in Modern Work. Finally, the idea is to automate processes and streamline your business with the Microsoft Power Platform. Follow these steps logically and you will notice that you will have mastered Modern Working in no time.
You are not alone, we help you!
As you will have come to expect by now, we are here for you. Where there is uncertainty, we are there to simplify things for you. A promise we also make to you when it comes to Modern Working. In the transition phase, for example, we provide guidance in communication. We do this at the start and during the migration, but certainly also afterwards. We help with the creation of the e-mails but also with the content. You are not alone. You really are not.
We also provide training in the office to give all staff a fresh start. Moreover, we can help managers to act as ambassadors and thus get the team enthusiastic. Alternatively, Quality Mentor offers online training for just that extra push in the right direction. These trainings offer steps of 5 minutes each in order to learn how to deal with Modern Working in an accessible way.
Watch videos about Teams
We understand that working with the latest techniques and methods requires attention and time. We also understand that time is not always available or that it is difficult to make time for this. To keep things as simple as possible, we therefore recommend you to pay attention to the videos about Teams. With a little time and a bit of attention, you'll be up to speed on how Teams actually works. In no time you will have switched your team to Modern Work.
Do it together
A new way of working. Sounds exciting. But fortunately it is less exciting than it seems, especially if you do it together as a team. That helps each other enormously and ensures that everything becomes a lot clearer. Also make sure that team leaders understand how it works. When they understand it, the rest of the staff will soon follow. Not only within the team you do it together, also we (a team of professionals) are there to support you where necessary. Do you encounter problems or get completely stuck? Don't panic, we are just a phone call away.
An important tip to conclude with: be patient and give it time to get used to it. It's just a question of taking steps and getting your team on board. Once everything is under control, you will notice how much smoother the work process runs thanks to Modern Working.
