Influence and Productivity in the Remote Workplace


With a record number of people working from home due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic, it can be very difficult for employees and managers to keep things running as smoothly and productively as possible. It’s difficult to achieve maximum productivity while trying to make adjustments to more people virtually commuting and virtually working. Eric Bloom is an expert on influence and productivity in the workplace, and he discusses how to make the best of a remote workplace situation in this expert sales interview hosted by John Golden.

This expert sales interview explores:

  • How management can maintain productivity
  • How individuals can maintain productivity

Maintaining Productivity: Tips for Managers

A manager’s goal when working with a mostly remote team is to organize themselves and the situation for maximum productivity and keep things running as smoothly as possible, despite the current shift in the normal workplace. The best way for managers to maintain that productivity is to do what they’re already doing, but with more intentionality. Managers can continue to implement those great business principles that they do in person, but just alter them so that they’re still doing these things virtually.

Maintaining Productivity: Tips for Individuals

From an individual perspective, there are a number of things that you can do in order to maintain productivity as well. If you haven’t worked at home for any length of time, there are a number of issues working against you, especially now in this environment where many people began working from home quite suddenly.
