Tip #1: Care for your team’s mental health by using clear communication
COVID has changed the workforce tremendously. It has impacted the global economy physically, emotionally, and mentally. The old way of doing business is not going to work and only business leaders who are willing to adapt will succeed. While COVID hit many businesses rather hard, it has also opened up market opportunities for opportunistic business leaders who know how to adapt to a challenge.
You can’t expect your team to function like they did pre COVID. It is imperative you take their mental health seriously if you want them to be thriving and good team members. Consider offering flexible work hours, work from home opportunities, and creative ways of getting the job done.
This is done by communicating with your team that you care and that you are willing to work together towards a win-win solution.
Consider innovative software like Miro, an interactive whiteboard platform, Trello/Asana, two very popular project management tools.
Tip #2: Show your team you care by gifting them ergonomic work from home tools such as a standing desk converter, portable laptop desk, or laptop desk for bed
There are roughly two types of business leaders. 1) Those who know the ripple-effect power of investing in their teams 2) Those who view investing in their teams as a waste of time.
Winston S. Churchill was quoted having said “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
2020 has shown us all the power of unity, the grief of loss, and how almost instantaneously, a large part of the workforce was forced to work remotely.
According to the Pew Research Center (based on data from BLS) prior to COVID-19,only 7% of workers in the U.S. had access to a “flexible workplace” benefit or telework.
That number jumped quickly to 62-64%according to research conducted by SHRM’s COVID-19 Business Index and recent Gallup's research.
With most remote workers working at home, with many of them also caring for families, including children engaging in distance learning, it has never been a more important time to take care of your remote workers.
Business leaders who invest in their teams are known to have increased employee loyalty, higher productivity, and a significant return on investment.
Here are our favorite AboveTEK gift ideas, with our standing desk converter, portable laptop desk, and laptop desk for the bed being our top recommendations to help your team create a productive work at home space.

Ask them. Share this article with them and survey them if they would use any of these products. Chances are they would. If they had a laptop desk for bed, they may be able to balance working from home more efficiently when they have to juggle your deadline and their children’s needs.
Asking your team what they need shows respect. When your team knows you care, not only will they be more motivated to care for you and your business, but it will also foster a better environment. It is no secret that the number one reason people leave companies is due to management. According to a Robert Half poll, “nearly half the employees said they quit their job because of a bad boss”.
