- Tips For Getting Started -

Put The Right Technology In Place

Technology has given us the ability to communicate across various devices, operating systems, and applications. According to a ConnectSolutions study, “80% of remote workers reported feeling more connected to their coworkers, particularly when their remote work practices were supported by unified communications.” Implementing the right collaborative technology such as Slack, or any cloud document sharing tools, can help your organization work efficiently and stay organized and connected. Consider investing in a company-wide software sponsorship program, which allows employees to install important business software on their personal devices.

Implement A Remote Management Plan

To foster a successful remote environment for your employees, ensure they are equipped with the following:
  • Disciplinary excellence: While you want to avoid micromanaging, be sure that you’re requesting status updates, and that you have a system in place to measure productivity.
  • Clear instructions: Be sure to provide employees with clear guidelines and achievable milestones. While they won’t physically be in the office, you’ll need to be able to demonstrate leadership from afar. You can do this by regularly checking in and making yourself available for questions and team meetings.

Establish A Remote Interview Process

Much like a regular hiring process, be prepared and have a strategy for promoting and following up on your role(s):
  • Keep candidates well-informed at each stage of the interview process—you’ll want to give off the same impression about the company’s mission and values, that you would in-person.
  • Make sure you have the right video interview technology in place to host remote candidates.
  • Ensure a place is available to hold interviews that is quiet and doesn’t include distractions.
