A remote workforce has advantages for talent selection (no geographic restrictions), productivity (work from anywhere) and reduced overhead (no office space).
But maintaining a cohesive company culture with a remote workforce can be more difficult with the lack of in-person interaction, need to build trust at a distance, communications challenges and absentee managers.
Tom Iler, Chief Product Officer for Surge and Catalyte, shares advice on how to maintain a cohesive company culture regardless of where your workers are located. In this podcast he discusses:
- Building trust, on both employer and employee side
- Monitoring outcomes, not activities
- Having the right tools in place to facilitate productive communication
- Importance of flexibility and understanding in these uncertain times
