Virtual communication utilises digital tools such as email, chats, video calls, and text messages to transmit information between people who don’t meet face-to-face. It can be an important component of collaborative work, particularly in the context of hybrid or fully remote teams.

Remote working can lead to miss important information. There is also a shorter time frame for immediate feedback and responses. This can lead to confusion and discontent among managers and team members. Non-verbal cues, like facial expressions and body language are also more difficult to understand. It is crucial to have clear communication methods for teams working remotely.

The right tools and processes can make the difference between a highly productive and efficient remote team and one that is sucked up and overwhelmed by excessive notifications or a lack of structure. It is crucial that employees feel safe when communicating with colleagues via the internet. This will help reduce the possibility of miscommunications, or communication barriers.

It may take some time and careful planning to come up with a communication strategy for teams working remotely. It can also be advantageous to collaborate with an experienced, independent project manager who can help establish norms for communication and best practices for teams who work remotely. There are a lot of skilled independent PMs to choose from on Upwork. Start your search now to find the perfect fit for your team.
