Remote working is a hot topic. Ever-improving technology plus globalization mean that companies can employ staff who live in different parts of the world, and even those who like to work as they travel.
It can be tricky enough managing and growing a successful web design and development team in a single location. So imagine the complexities of managing a team of people that you rarely, if ever, see, who work from different locations around the globe, often with vastly different time zones. Without the right systems in place, there’s a danger of miscommunication and misunderstanding, which is bad news for your clients and bad news for your business. It’s not all bad though.
The benefits of remote working
1. Hire the right people
2. Set goals and expectations
3. Be clear about time
4. Communication is key
5. Build personal relationships within the team
6. Culture of respect and trust
