Build empathy across time zones

Working with team members who are in different time zones and locations can be its own challenge. Start by ensuring you have a shared space to get work done, consider establishing rules of engagement, and use productivity and collaboration tools to help drive unity.

Establish a shared space

Consider using a SharePoint team site in conjunction with a Teams channel. Then, you can easily and securely share content, updates, and news.

Ensure ideas can by shared outside of meetings

Consider adding a OneNote notebook to Teams or adding a Wiki tab in Teams to capture follow up items, meeting notes, or brainstorming sessions that can be shared with others.

Account for people who join late, leave early, or cannot attend

Any Teams meeting or call can be recorded to capture audio, video, and screen sharing activity. The recording happens in the cloud, and it is saved so you can share it securely across your organization.
