Navigating the Future of Remote Work for Business Success

Prior to 2020, roughly 4% of US workers worked remotely (NYT). Today, over a quarter of US workers work outside of the office. The number of remote workers is expected to grow, indicating that the work-from-home accommodation of the Covid-19 pandemic era has become a workplace standard for many companies and employees.

Digital Nomads working remotely in diverse settings

The benefits of offering remote work are well touted: access to a larger and more diverse talent pool, lower operating costs, increased productivity, and a better work-life balance for employees. Running a company with a remote team, however, requires some considerations to keep team members aligned and engaged. 

Here are five tips to help you run a successful organization with a distributed team:  

1. Hire for your values

Whether you’re hiring for an in office or remote position, keep your company’s values at the core of the screening process. Ask behavioral questions to evaluate whether a potential employee embodies your values and will be a good steward of the culture. 

2. Set clear expectations

Reduce confusion and enable your team to productively use their time by setting clear expectations around deadlines, availability and their contributions. Consistently follow up and provide feedback to keep everyone on track. 

3. Communicate, communicate, communicate

In a remote setting, timely and clear communication is key to creating cohesion across a distributed team. Consistently and clearly communicate goals, and use multiple channels to ensure the messaging is received by everyone. Set a regular communication cadence for team meetings, one-on-one check ins, office hours and project updates. 

4. Leverage the right technology

Technology is instrumental in keeping the team connected and productive. Invest in the right tools for communication, project management, video conferencing and compiling resources. Also, implement proper security measures to protect your company’s data across all channels and platforms. 

5. Keep employees engaged

Maintaining company culture and engaging employees in a remote environment requires some creativity–but it’s possible! Gain an understanding of what matters to your team, and create engagement strategies that resonate with them (e.g. time off to volunteer, social events). Consistency is the key to maintaining a strong culture and fostering engagement across a distributed team.
