In today’s global economy, many companies are leveraging talent between both physical and remote employees. To prepare — when your organization implements a new remote work culture or hires a MOD Virtual Professional, they will need to be onboarded and trained like any other employee. At the same time, the team will determine and adapt to best practices, technological tools, and procedures for training a strong blended team.
Document the process (Play-Pause-Do)
Try the Play, Pause, Do Method. This method requires that every standard operating procedure has a video attached alongside all written documentation. What is it exactly? It’s step-by-step, documentation that outlines each of your processes and what to do when things go awry.
This method is part of crafting your Virtual Playbook. You will be amazed at how efficiently you can bring all employees up to speed when you have a play-by-play, documented process.
Craft your own FREE Virtual Playbook, and schedule your ‘Grow Virtual’ Business Strategy Session now to learn more!
Add it to a system (IT & project management)
Use a task assignment & management platform.
There are many services to choose from to help organize tasks and projects. Choose from Slack, Microsoft Teams, Workplace from Facebook, Monday.com, Trello, Asana, and many more.
Here at MyOutDesk, the Monday.com platform has worked well to keep our team organized.
Create a training guide
A standard operating procedure (SOP) is a set of step-by-step instructions compiled by an organization to help workers carry out complex routine operations. SOPs aim to achieve efficiency, quality output, and uniformity of performance while reducing miscommunication and failure to comply with industry regulations.
With any new hire, it is important to have SOPs in place. SOPs ensure that tasks are completed in a uniform manner throughout the organization. Download MyOutDesk’s FREE SOP Guide & Sample here.
Create a presentation about the standard
Use visuals to articulate your messages. Videos and images can greatly improve communication among virtual teams. Visual learning is the most effective training tool. Invest your time right and create video documentation to get your employees up to speed in working uniformly!
Video conference calls are the new (virtual) conference rooms and allow team members to show body language, facial expressions, posture, and hand gestures—all important aspects of communication. A more in-person experience encourages all to have more open communication and build trust.
Best of all — all video meetings can be recorded & used in the future. (You can save your breath a bit. No need to keep repeating yourself!)
Name it, Brand it, Wear it, Teach it, Institutionalize it, Reward it.
The Organizational Change Model is a great framework to bring change into effect and to breathe life into any idea, any concept, any organizational culture change, and procedural change.

Let’s turn your list of ideas into existence. Pass them through this Organizational Change Model framework:

Did You Know? MyOutDesk’s origin story is set during the last global financial crisis of 2008. Yes, that’s right — our business started by scaling businesses with virtual assistants during a recession! Our first client in 2008 went from five to seventeen VPs with a completely revamped organizational model in short order, and he told MyOutDesk, “Our virtual professionals have shaved $250,000 off our monthly overhead.”
