Transcript

  • 1. Home Sweet…Office?The women of Connect: Professional Women’s Network tacklethe hot-button issue of working remotely, and offer adviceon how to do it successfully.
  • 2. I found that I was more productive working in my home. I got up in the morning and prepared for work just as I would if commuting. I could focus better without people stopping by to chat or being Colleen Ford called in for meetings. Program Manager©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved.

  • 3. Time management is key, even more so than in an office, where certain cues are available (like seeing people go to lunch, get up for meetings, etc.). Jennie Oyola Senior Performance Analyst©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK 3
  • 4. I work with colleagues globally. Finding a good web-conference solution is important, and if you can have video, that can also be helpful. Having collaboration tools is important, too. We use Amanda Somma Google Docs frequently, and its great for these purposes. Consulting Director©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK 4
  • 5. Working from home has allowed me some benefits as a parent. I could get up at 5 a.m. and work for an hour or two before getting my kids up and off to school. I also did not have to get them to a Laura Jones before-school day care so I could commute to the office on time. Consultant, Business Development That makes it a plus to my employers already.©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK 5
  • 6. I have a team style that works well in person and am trying to translate it to remote because in my current company, none of us are co-located. Whats worked is being proactive on outbound Cheryl Kellond communication and checking in frequently, not just onCEO and Co-Founder at Bia Sport progress, but to throw ideas around or just goof around a bit. .©2013 LinkedIn Corporation.

  • 7. I work from home. Every day. The flexibility is great. It is all about getting the work done. Not WHEN you do the work or where you are when you do it.

  • 8. Telecommuting can work effectively with a very clear set of guidelines and programs for communications. The key is documentation. Everything needs to be documented so that Dorothy Distefano everyone is on the same page. Writer on the Verge©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK 8
  • 9. Julie Petrarca I have worked with teams spanning multiple time zones and find Principal at Studio 754 that Basecamp (or similar) is a great way to organize project details (with or without time-zone issues). That and a quality shared calendar usually works well for us.©2013 LinkedIn Corporation. All Rights Reserved. CONNECT: PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S NETWORK 9
