Posted Jun 18, 2020 Daxx

Despite the crisis caused by the global lockdown, Daxx has coped with the hardships that have come our way and managed to achieve a good productivity level. Our clients’ development teams haven’t slowed down while working from home, and neither have our HR/client managers and recruiters. As a result, Daxx now ranks among those Ukrainian tech companies that have had the highest hiring volumes throughout the quarantine.

How Daxx Kept Employees' Motivation High During the 2020 Lockdown

Daxx WFH Exercise Challenge 

To keep Daxxers moving, we held a week-long online workout challenge with all sorts of exercises. We also had sports coaches supervise us while working out to make sure no one got injured.

To further promote healthy lifestyle among Daxxers, we also delivered yoga classes, organized a cooking master class, and invited a certified nutritionist to give a talk about healthy eating habits.

Daxx WFH Marathon 

To add some color to Daxxers' work from home days, we challenged them with a Daxx WFH Marathon. Each day brought a new compelling task Daxxers had to fulfil in order to win the contest and get prizes. 

All the tasks we gave were aimed at educating and entertaining our colleagues: 
   
Day #1 — Share a photo of your home office.

Who doesn’t like presents? Especially those you didn’t expect to get. To cheer up our coworkers, we sent each a Daxx care box filled with all the quarantine essentials — masks, hand sanitizers, fruits, healthy organic sweets, and juice. 

Vyshyvanka Day Flash Mob

A vyshyvanka is a traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirt that Ukrainians all over the world love and cherish. Every third Thursday of May Ukrainians wear vyshyvankas to celebrate Vyshyvanka Day.

Despite the fact that this year we couldn’t come all nice and dressed up to work, Daxxers still participated in the special occasion and shared photos of them wearing vyshyvankas online.

Work Hard, Play Hard — Organizing Efficient WFH 

Our clients' satisfaction has remained our priority throughout the lockdown. This is why keeping the productivity levels of our employees high has been of critical importance while they’ve been working from home. 

Here’s a list of our tried-and-true methods to stay productive while shifting to remote work:

  • Distribute responsibilities 

Careful delegation of responsibilities is crucial when everyone is working remotely. In development teams, Team Leads and PMs are the ones responsible for keeping the productivity of the team at the same level and fostering its growth.  

It's also important to make sure each team member knows who to contact in each specific situation.

  • Arrange daily sync-ups 

At first, you might think that having sync-up calls daily is way too frequent. However, our experience shows that daily calls help distributed teams stay more connected, motivated, and productive in the long run. Just make sure you don’t get carried away discussing what your cats did last night and get all the important business points covered. 

For some quality social interaction, organize separate meetings dedicated entirely to random (or topical) chit-chat with your colleagues.

  • Develop a service-level agreement 

An SLA will help team members increase communication efficiency and thus boost productivity. For example, you can set a universal response time for each collaboration tool you use. 

And if someone doesn't respond within the agreed time, you can contact them via other communication means, like their mobile phone.

  • Take care of security 

Many business owners are skeptical about working from home because of security threats. Their concerns are perfectly justified, however, there are ways to make working from home safe. At Daxx, we make sure our developers have all the necessary equipment for safe operations with data (like quality antivirus software). 

We also have a BYOD policy that helps to regulate the use of personal devices while working from home to ensure there are no data breaches.
