How Remote Workers Should Approach Conference Calls

Making your presence known on a conference call with plenty of participants can be challenging. This is especially true for those who work remotely. Below are some ways remote workers should approach conference calls.

Avoid Technical Difficulties
Technical difficulties can prevent you from logging into the conference call and no one wants that. Prior to the call, make sure that you know the phone number to dial into and the access code you will need to enter. Once you have joined the call, be sure to mute your line when you are not the one talking.

Give Your Undivided Attention
It goes without saying that remote workers are in a different location than everyone else on the call. However, this environment could be filled with distractions. Do your best to get rid of these distractions so you can give your undivided attention to the conference call. 

Add To The Conversation
Often times, being out of sight lends itself to being out of mind. You can turn this phrase on its head by speaking up on the call at the appropriate time. People usually wait until the end of the call to ask questions or add comments.
