A positive corporate culture can help create a productive workplace. Eight out of 10 employees and executives say a productive workplace—one that empowers employees to pursue their professional interests and develop their skills—leads in turn to greater success for the business as a whole.
Through a consultative and partnership approach, Satellite Office is able to help businesses find highly skilled resources that not only meet their job requirements but are also perfect for their company culture. Having a competent offshore team that matches your company’s culture plays an important role in making your remote resources an extension of your local team. The next step is to reinforce your company culture and weave it into your offshore team’s processes. Here are some tips on how to do just that.
Be Clear on Your “Why”
Before you assign any tasks to your offshore team members, make sure that they understand the goals of the company. If your offshore team understands your corporate objectives, it will be easier to establish a work culture that supports those objectives.
This will translate into creating a flexible, helpful, and engaging work atmosphere. Your offshore team will feel accountable, goal-oriented, recognized, and most of all, empowered.
Have Regular Communication Rhythms
Communication is key.
Keeping everyone informed can prevent misunderstandings and keep the team focused on your company goals. It also strengthens team collaboration and encourages giving and receiving constructive feedback.
Rewards and Recognition
People thrive when they receive appreciation. A little gratitude goes a long way in motivating your offshore team to give their best efforts.
It only takes seconds to recognize team members for their achievements, and that can already have a profound effect on their day and have a positive impact on their overall job performance. Simple things such as shouting out through Slack or an email truly matter!
Aside from simple gestures, you can create rewards and recognition programs such as birthday celebrations, peer-to-peer appreciation, monthly newsletters with employee success stories, family invites, the performer’s HAT, employee interviews, staycation rewards, personalized gifts and many more.
Feedback is Encouraged
When an offshore team openly communicates their thoughts to their colleagues and managers, they reap the benefits of growth and development.
When you foster an open environment, you can help your Offshore team feel validated and more invested in the team and the business.
Allow them to speak their mind no matter how small it is during meetings or even in daily conversations.
Fun and Engaging Activities
Create a workplace where employees are eager to work and excited to contribute. Keep in mind that engaged employees are more likely to commit to your business, and help you address problems as they arise.
Create team-building programs, sports events, workplace parties, or employee games. You can also do lunch and learn sessions. Assign a team member who will host a lunch-and-learn on a subject they’re passionate about, whether it is about personal finance, productivity, or cryptocurrencies!
You can also emphasize work-life balance. Encourage breaks, review workloads regularly and give them time to volunteer.
