How the IT Service Desk Can Better Engage with Remote Employees

With this new priority on remote work, employees can no longer wander to their favorite IT pro’s desk to ask for help with access to an application , but they still need easy answers. In today’s work-from-anywhere environment, IT needs a powerful strategy for service and support to meet the challenges of remote engagement. Here are a few key ways you can support your organization’s remote employees with a modern IT service management strategy.

While remote work comes with its challenges, it also brings opportunity – and with nearly everyone in a similar situation, many employees will be able to hone their self-help skills while IT teams manage the rest. Overall, self-help and knowledge-based systems will ensure IT teams are not overwhelmed and other users can flourish from remote locations.

Self Service Help Desk

Remote work isn’t limited to “work from home,” and not everyone’s schedule is strictly 9-to-5. An IT support issue can arise prior to a late dinner with a client. It might happen on the train to work. It might happen at home at 8:30 in the morning. It might be  be when the employee have no access to a laptop, but because they’re working, they need a solution.
Self-service technologies offer the necessary capabilities for IT teams to become the backbone of a remote workforce.

Deliver knowledge where employees are

IT teams should build a knowledge base to identify key questions, starting with the most frequent questions and requests.

A knowledge base can exist as integration within the Service-Desk ticket screen, where users have access to the most relevant knowledge based articles listed out. This will direct them to an existing resolutions page. Acting as an in-depth, data-based FAQ, both IT teams and its users can leverage this knowledge base to their own advantage.
