Tip of the Week: Use Technology to Get More from Your Employees

Tip of the Week: Use Technology to Get More from Your Employees

Managers and employees might work for the same company, but the reality is that their responsibilities and experiences are two very different things. When you promote someone new to management, or if you join their ranks for yourself, you’ll have to keep certain practices in mind. Let’s go over some of these practices and how IT can ease some of the burden.

A Manager’s Job is to, Well, Manage

This might seem obvious, but it’s important that you make sure that your managerial style does not conflict or get in the way of your team’s preferred work style. Obviously there will be differences that must be overcome, but as a manager, it’s your responsibility to anticipate these differences and adjust your managerial style accordingly to optimize communication when appropriate.

There are many solutions out there that can give managers a bird’s eye view of their team members on task, thus allowing them to check on who is doing what, and when. Knowing these details is critical to ensuring work is done efficiently and in line with organizational goals.

Communication is Key, as They Say

Management is also responsible for ensuring clear and open communication, including the sharing of information. It’s important that management not only does this, but also does this through the use of appropriate tools and communication solutions. Businesses have countless communication solutions at their disposal, so pick one that promotes collaboration while also allowing external contacts to get in touch with your team as needed.

Management must lead by example in this case, using the established tools to set them as the standard for the business. If you want your team to embrace new communication solutions, then you must show them that they can be used effectively.

Hold—and Lead—Effective Meetings

Believe it or not, there is such a thing as holding too many meetings, and it’s usually because meetings are not being held effectively in the first place. You can improve your meeting-holding practices by building an itinerary and sticking to it.

The right technology can also enable you to hold more effective meetings with both your in-office and remote employees. Video conferencing tools and collaboration suites can make coworkers feel more connected to each other, and they can provide more modalities of communication in general.
