How to Work From Home When You Don’t Have Supportive Employers or Managers

Working from home can be a real struggle if you are not used to it. However, it can be a real struggle if you don’t have supportive employers or managers. In difficult times it is crucial that employers are transparent and support their employees. So what can you do if yours is not transparent?

Here are some of the key steps you can take if you feel that you are not fully supported.

Let them know how you feel.

The first step you should take if you feel that your employer or manager is not supporting you is to talk to them. This can be intimidating, but your employer may not even know how you feel. It is a good idea to write down what you want to say. Try to think about how you think they might feel supportive as well. You may be asked what you would like them to say or how they could help you, so a list will be useful.

Form a team with other employees.

If you don’t get anywhere after talking to your employer, it’s worth teaming up with your employees. Chances are that they will be treated in the same way. There is a lot of power in numbers. So if your employees have the same problems, you have a better chance of changing your treatment if you stand together.

Again, try to talk to your employer or, if that doesn’t work, try talking to someone higher up in the company.

While your supervisor is usually the person you talk to when you have problems, you can also talk to the Human Resources department. If you have a problem with your employer, you should contact this person first.
There will be guidelines that must be followed and it is the responsibility of HR teams to ensure that they are implemented. Therefore, any problems must be reported to them as soon as possible.

Find a new job

If all else fails and your employer still does not support you, it might be worthwhile to look for a new job. In the current economic situation this may sound impossible. However, while you are at home, it has never been a better time to look for alternative employment. The pandemic will not last forever. When it is over, do you really want to continue working for a company that does not support you? Consider taking online courses if you want to refresh your skills. This will make you more employable when you are ready to make the change.

No one should have to deal with an unsupportive manager or employer. Remember that the current situation is only temporary and that there is a lot of support available online. Follow the advice above, and if you feel that your employer is breaking the law or putting you at risk, do not hesitate to pursue your complaint further.
