The issues with Working From Home for your virtual team.

Employee Isolation icon

Employee Isolation/Mental Health Challenges

Loneliness can become an issue when working from home long-term. Being away from an office full-time can be isolating, especially the extroverts who feed off each other and need other people around them to be more effective. The lack of interaction can also harm your team culture, as remote employees will feel disconnected. This usually leads to a lack of employee engagement and dissatisfaction. If not addressed on time, it can easily result in an increased turnover rate.

Our Solution:

The professional office environment we provide means your staff will be able to interact with other people and feel more like a working professional. It becomes even more beneficial when you have two or more staff because your remote team will interact with each other daily further building your team culture.

Cybersecurity icon

Increased Cybersecurity Risk

Having a remote team means everything moves in the digital space. It’s an area that is increasingly dangerous to both individuals and businesses. The risk is even more pronounced as business teams access centralized resources like remote company servers.

Any cybersecurity incident such as data breach can be disastrous, ranging from financial to reputational consequences.

Our Solution:

We take cybersecurity seriously, our office and systems are equipped with both logical (authentication, encryption, secure passwords, disabled USB drives) and physical (Biometric, CCTV) security.

Distractions icon

Increased Cybersecurity Risk

Even the most disciplined and organized remote team members get distracted at home. The home is full of distractions. From family members and pets to activities like home chores, video games, music and online shopping. Those who live with family or roommates also face regular, concentration-busting interruptions. A 20-minute break can then turn into two hours.

Our Solution:

We provide ample workspace and office amenities that promote wellness, happiness, satisfaction and fewer distractions. Your staff comes to work in an office

Unreliable Internet and Electricity icon

Unreliable Internet and Electricity

Your remote employee’s home internet and electricity can be unstable depending on their area, especially if they are in more rural locations. The Philippines are notorious for having unstable internet and electricity supply. Downtime can last hours if not days. Any downtime your remote team experiences is time you’re losing in productivity. It is also a very convenient excuse remote staff uses when they are unable to work.

Our Solution:

We have multiple internet lines with separate service providers for backup and our office is located in a Major city where electrical interruptions are minimal. Less downtime means more productivity for you and fewer excuses your staff can use.

Resolving Technical Challenges icon

Resolving Technical Challenges

Your remote employee working at home will have their own computer and equipment but it is not always going to work. The webcam stopped working; the headset is making strange sounds; the computer is slow; the software won’t install or open. Sound familiar? This is the reality for many remote employees working from home and it can be frustrating for you to work with continual interruptions.

Our Solution:

We have a dedicated internal IT Team for resolving any and all technical issues your remote employee may have. We have backup for hardware such as a computer, keyboard, mouse, headset and webcam are all readily available to swapped instantly if required. This is to ensure minimal interruptions and downtime for your remote team and business.

What our clients say about us

Saratel Solutions Testimonial - David Dimeglio - Robin Drive Auto LLC

"They meet with me regularly and gives me updates on how things are going and I couldn't be happier with what's going on. Saratel Solutions did take care of my bookkeeping needs, better than when I had an accountant sitting right next to me."
