Since the advent of high-speed internet access, remote work has become infinitely more prevalent. A recent Gallup poll found that 37% of US workers have telecommunicated, compared to only 9% in 1995! Companies can save money on overheads associated with physical workspaces while enlisting the services of specialist workers from diverse geographic regions.
Contrary to popular wisdom, a TINYpulse survey found that 91% of workers were more productive as a result of their remote working arrangements. Your employees don’t need to be in the same office in order to get their work done! However, if you aren’t seeing your employees every day, conventional management techniques need to evolve in order to get the most out of your remote workforce.
