Today’s workforce is spread all over the globe. No longer is everyone under one roof, and the benefits are immense. For employers there is decreased turnover and absenteeism, improved retention, cost reduction, and access to a larger pool of talent. For the individual, there is increased flexibility, more independence, and a better work-life balance. But with these perks come challenges.
Managing a remote workforce requires more than just smartphones, Wi-Fi, web cams, and expense allowances. It requires having the right employees in the right jobs with the right skills and resources. And it also requires managers with the know-how to communicate effectively, maintain a sense of community, cultivate teamwork and develop relationships built on trust.
