What you need to know as a stay at home CEO

work from home

Working remotely has never been more crucial, not just for flexibility but for our safety. Unless you are a key worker who needs to be out, lockdown has got everyone working from home. So, how do you run a successful business from your sofa? Here are our top tips to help you get through the next few months.

Remote control

Working remotely has never been easier thanks to mobile devices that rival laptops in terms of power. You can run an organisation from the palm of your hand, and phone companies are constantly creating apps to make managing your business on the go super simple. Software as a Service (SaaS) means that we no longer have to be plugged in to a PC, we can access our software in the cloud, anytime and anywhere. Take this opportunity to take control of your work-life balance while controlling your company from home.

CEO at home

Despite the pros, such as being able to roll out of bed straight onto the laptop, staying at home does have its challenges. Firstly, it can be difficult to get motivated when you don’t have an office, so it is important that you create a fixed workspace at home if at all possible. Find a corner of your conservatory or decamp in your dining room, but whatever you do, make sure you have a base to go to. It is vital to have a space that you can store files, take messages, leave notes so that things don’t slip through the net as you move your work from room to room.

Stay connected

One area that business owners and managers will likely find difficult is not having their team around them to catch up with and consult on projects. Staying connected and maintaining relationships with both colleagues and clients is essential right now. If you have a team meeting every morning, keep that up via Zoom calls. If you make regular contact with clients then make sure you set aside time when the house is quiet to keep this a priority and maintain client confidence.

Peace of mind

The last thing you need to be worried about right now is your SaaS access, and this is where LEAAS can help. Our SaaS escrow gives you peace of mind regarding access to your business-critical technology in the current climate. We offer a unique escrow agreement, Access Assure, that monitors your provision while you get on with the important job of looking after your clients. Want to know more?
