KEYS TO MANAGER SUCCESS IN A FLEXIBLE ENVIRONMENT
Managing a distributed workforce of staff both onsite and remote adds complexity to a manager's role. Be sure to:
- Set clear expectations, not just for work product, but also for how you will communicate with one another.
- Meet in-person, as well as virtually, on a regular basis.
- Foster a team environment: Make sure your remote employees feel like part of the team.
- Focus on goals, rather than how the goals are met. You will not have insight into your team's every working moment, so focus on their output.
