How do you nurture a company culture with your cloud staff?

The advancement of technology made it easier for companies to look beyond the limited staffing option of hiring in-house. Add to that the current economic climate, businesses are now more inclined to look into their other staffing options, like domestic outsourcing, nearshoring, offshore outsourcing, and cloud staffing.

What is cloud staffing?

Cloud staffing allows employers to hire a dedicated employee to work remotely at their preferred schedule.

You’re probably familiar with the staffing options that we mentioned above. To clearly define outsourcing though, it is the process where companies seek the help of a third-party services provider to perform services that are traditionally done by in-house staff. Companies can outsource to a business process outsourcing (BPO) company in an onshore, nearshore, or offshore location.

Cloud staffing, on the other hand, means working without needing to be physically present in the employer’s office. Cloud staffing allows employers to hire a dedicated employee to work remotely at their preferred schedule. It is a plug-and-play staffing method that is provided over the internet.

Further, the term ‘cloud staffing’ is originally coined by the Clark-based outsourcing company, Cloudstaff Modern Workforce.

How to nurture a company culture with your cloud staff

Cloud staffing is just like outsourcing, only better. However, most employers are reluctant to try this business strategy due to a variety of reasons. While this is definitely cost-effective and is beneficial to the business especially in the long run, companies are worried about not being able to build a professional relationship and share their company’s culture with their cloud staff.

Now, how do you nurture your company’s culture with your cloud staff? 

Find ways to bond over hobbies and non-work related topics. Create a separate channel so employees can talk about their mutual interests.

Utilize communication and collaboration tools

Everyone knows how to use Skype and Zoom! Utilize technology and these free online communication tools to easily connect with your remote team. It’s a basic tip, but sometimes the best way to bond and create a relationship with other employees is to just let it happen naturally.

In addition, find ways to bond over hobbies and non-work related topics. Create a separate group chat or channel so employees can talk about their mutual interests, like running, cooking, sports, or any other type of hobby.

Share your company culture from the start

From the employees’ onboarding, share your company values with everyone. It plays a huge part in your company culture. In addition, it will give your new hires an idea of how your business operates.

Understand what your employees need (and want!)

It’s always important to listen to what your employees need and require to create a better work environment. While you may have tons of ideas to further nurture your company culture, they may also have some in mind that can help. After all, it’s best to learn tips and strategies from the employees themselves. Just be open to learning something new.
