It is common to find people saying that they would like the day to have more than 24 hours so that they could accomplish all their tasks, right? What many people don’t seem to realize is that scarce time can be a consequence of a lack of work routine.
Defining a work routine is important for the organization and for the fluidity in the activities that we need to perform.
Unlike what it may seem, a good work routine is not rigid. It serves to order priorities so that work does not become a headache!
In contrast, it can be a great challenge to organize things in a remote work regime. Have you thought about that?
Remote work has many advantages, but it is also a challenge for those who need to create a work routine!
This style of work, contrary to what most traditional minds think, has shown good results for companies, such as:
• Increased productivity (according to a survey on the FlexJobs website);
• Reduction in turnover (according to Stanford University research);
• And even lower costs for the company! (according to a report by Forbes magazine).
Concerning professionals working remotely, the main gain is in the increase in quality of life. Since he does not need to move, the person gains valuable time, which can be used to exercise and even sleep better.
In terms of effective management, the challenge is to develop a work routine that is good for the entire team.
Are you experiencing a situation like this?

To make this possible, the startup prioritizes trust and proximity among its employees, based on assertiveness and leadership.
They use a playbook that organizes all sectors of the company.

2. Remote work with Falconi (by Pedro Donati)
Mr. Pedro Donati, Director of Technology at Falconi, starts the webinar by pointing out that remote work will function better if all employees act in the same way.
Thus, having part of the team in a physical office and another part in remote work does not lead to good results.
In Donati’s view, for the work to be productive, it is necessary to have discipline, organization, and a well-established work routine.
It is also important to have the self-knowledge to know your own limitations and empathy with colleagues.
As he also emphasizes, the main challenges of remote work are communication and isolation.
Remote communication can cause “over-communication”, which is the exchange of unnecessary information. Thus, in remote work, it is important to be as direct as possible, so that everyone is productive.
Mr. Donati also brought some daily tips for preparing for work, such as: wearing clothes that are not pajamas, having an organized environment, establishing schedules, and taking breaks.
For joint actions, the team needs to organize meetings in advance, to establish schedules, to have conversation moments outside the theme of the meeting, and to have a very clear agenda.
Finally, he highlights the importance of having separate channels for each topic, in addition to taking breaks to talk about amenities.

3. Life and Remote Work in Pandemic Times II – PRORH / Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG)
The webinar held by professors at UFMG addresses a more personal aspect of remote work, that is, how this model influences personal lives and how we can stay healthy in this “new” scenario.
It presents more sensitive topics, such as the effects of the lack of human contact in the work routine.
In this context, mental health is the keyword.
The concept of mindfulness (a practice that suggests that your mind is fully aware of what is happening, what it is doing and space it is occupying) is widely discussed.
Teachers explain that some habits can be adopted to achieve mindfulness. They are:
• Breath control;
• And any activity that brings you pleasure and relaxation.
About the work itself, some tips presented were:
• Establish schedules;
• Know your productive period;
• Organize an agenda;
• And adjust your priorities.

5. Successful remote work: the rituals and best practices of remote-first companies (by Gonçalo Hall, Larissa Lima, Lucas Galvanini and Renato Ribeiro)
In this webinar, professionals address the importance of internal communication becoming written communication.
That old conversation between co-workers during working hours has diminished and has been replaced by a few messages exchanged outside the agenda.
The experts talk about the organization and the importance of following the day’s task plan and show that this can be done through the various tools available on the internet.
Besides that, productivity should be based on delivering results and not on the number of hours worked.
Another interesting point addressed is the presentation of the concepts of synchronous (instantaneous) and asynchronous (non-instantaneous) communication, and how they can be used to optimize the team’s productivity.
And finally, experts address the fact that the home office is different from remote work. As a matter of fact, not everyone can be productive working at home. In this case, alternatives such as coworking are good options.

6. Remote work for non-remote teams – RunRun.it (by Antônio Carlos Soares)
What is mindset?
This is the first concept addressed by Mr. Soares. For this specialist, our thinking pattern directly influences our decision-making ability.
With this proposition in mind, he says that in remote work it is more important to have control over results delivery than presence control.
Soares talks about the importance of creating groups within companies to unify the communication between its members.
Additionally, the adoption of tools for the creation of a “virtual office” allows everyone to have access to the organization and results of their tasks.
He also says that it is important to know how to separate work from your personal life, and the more you maintain your routine, the better your result will be!
