Five Types of Remote Workers you will run across in the Virtual Office

  1. 1. Five types of remote workers you’ll run across in the virtual office
  2. 2. Interacting with a variety of office personalities is what makes coming into work every day an adventure! But what if you work remotely from your home office? As anyone who has ever been a teleworker or collaborated with teleworkers before knows, you don’t have to look very far to find a range of colorful virtual coworker profiles as well.
  3. 3. 1. “Always On”: We’ve all heard that remote working at least part of the time can boost productivity among certain employees, but the “Always On” remote worker takes that to the next level. She is quick to respond to emails at any time of the day and night and weekend, and her presence status is nearly always online.
  4. 4. 2. “Invisible (Wo)Man”: The polar opposite of the “Always On” profile, the “Invisible” remote worker is never to be found. Getting a timely email reply is nearly as impossible as the chance of catching her on chat as her status is set most of the time to Away. Despite having a range of virtual collaboration and communication tools within reach, the “Invisible” remote worker is anything but connected. Offline
  5. 5. 3. “Road Warrior”: We’ve all been on the odd conference call with the guy or gal sprinting through an airport terminal or parked on the side of a noisy freeway. The “Road Warrior” is rarely ever in one place for long but constantly on the move visiting prospects and clients, inspecting sites or attending seminars in different cities, connecting from whichever device is handiest in the moment – laptop, smartphone, tablet or all of the above.
  6. 6. BLA BLABLA BLA BLA BLABLA LA ! 4. “Conversationalist” : Despite being out of the office, the “Conversationalist” makes the most of virtual communication applications to connect orally with everyone! The equivalent of an open space buddy stopping by your desk to chitchat, the “Conversationalist” prefers verbal collaboration over written. When your VoIP interface, mobile or landline rings, chances are that your “Conversationalist” remote co-worker is on the line.
  7. 7. 5. “Hybrid”: Seen both in-person and online, the “Hybrid” remote employee boasts a mastery of work-life balance, collaborating in the office when physical meetings are required and virtually when other priorities take precedence. For the “Hybrid” remote worker, having access to the same communication tools, applications and solutions is essential to maintaining seamless productivity from any location.
