When the threat of COVID-19 within Africa became more apparent in late February, we decided to do a fully remote test run for the ei office on the 2nd of March. At this point, there were no ‘confirmed’ cases in the country but felt the process was important in preparing your favourite team for a situation where we would have to prioritise our health and work from home. I’m glad we did.
On the 18th of March when total cases in Nigeria grew from 2 to 8, we decided to put our remote plan in action.
I have listed the major remote team tools we use for Task Management, Team Interaction, Client engagement and Payments. Though these tools are common practice for quite a few companies, we are sure there are many others who will find this useful. For team leaders and managers, without trust in your team, all these tools are a waste of time.
Make sure you stay home and stay clean. Let us know what you guys are using to remain productive!
