Setting Up Your Remote Working Team
At ActionPoint, we have championed remote working for years and have helped hundreds of organisations transition to mobile workplaces. This includes setting up remote workers with cloud-based productivity applications such as Microsoft 365 and Teams. However, it also encompasses the physical setup. When it comes to remote working, many organisations are still thinking short-term. Now is the time to set your team up right, ensuring they are as effective at home as they are in the office.
ActionPoint’s Remote Working Setup
Covering the Basics - Physical Setup
If you are asking your team to work from home, there are a few essentials they need. At a very basic level this includes a laptop, an external monitor, a webcam, an external mouse or keyboard, and a headset. Together, these 5 or 6 pieces of equipment ensures that your team is correctly set up from an ergonomic standpoint. It also ensures that teams are ready for video conferencing calls and meetings.
Covering the Basics – Tools and Applications
Along with the physical setup, there are other fundamental requirements. This includes:
- A quality, reliable broadband connection.
- Access to company files and applications (we recommend OneDrive).
- Productivity tools (we recommend Microsoft 365).
- Some way of staying connected with members of your team (we recommend Microsoft Teams).

High Quality Home Office Setups
In ActionPoint’s 2020 Remote Working Report, we found that the second biggest challenge for remote workers (after communication with co-workers) is the physical workspace. When in an office setting, the onus is on the organisation to ensure that workers have access to high-quality equipment. Why should it be any different in remote working or hybrid environments?
