Management has concerns about remote employees, and that’s fair. When you’re accustomed to working with your team and seeing them actively engaged, it can be discombobulating not knowing if they’re working on the next project, or just watching Netflix. But at the same time, recent reports show employees have been more stressed and overworked than ever before, suggesting a misalignment between employees and business leaders. Build trust on both sides by establishing a clear channel of communication and setting expectations for remote workers.
And one final thought—technology isn’t a luxury, it’s a business necessity. Make sure your team has the docking stations, screens, and peripherals they need to be as productive at home as they are in the office.
