Culhane Meadows’ Co-Founder Heather Haughian was recently interviewed for an article by TechTarget on how to prepare workforces for remote collaboration.
Here are a few excerpts from the article:
The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in remote work as a rule, not an exception.
Before the pandemic, 7% of employees worked remotely, according to Pew Research Center. That number surged as COVID-19 took hold, which led organizations to quickly deploy and increase their software investments — including remote content collaboration tools — so their teams could remain productive.
As a result, the remote content collaboration market grew more extensively during pandemic-related business shutdowns than other related markets. Content collaboration became essential technology, according to Mike Woodbridge, senior director and analyst at Gartner.
How to deploy content collaboration tools to remote workforces
Successful deployment to remote workforces depends on the workforce’s preparedness for the tool and its buy-in from leadership teams. To prepare workforces, leaderships teams should take the following steps:
Explain the tool’s advantages. Before launch, leadership teams must lay out the tool’s benefits to get users on board, according to Heather Haughian, CTO and founder of law firm Culhane Meadows. While leadership teams may like something state-of-the-art and innovative, “if you don’t tell [employees] why and what it can do for them, it will flop,” Haughian said.
