Increase of Remote Work (01:18)


The COVID-19 outbreak showed how working from home could be beneficial for employees and employers. Managers and supervisors have had to adjust to having remote team members.

The Advantages (02:17)

Having remote workers leads to a wider recruitment pool, increased productivity, and fewer sick days. Remote workers save time and money by avoiding a commute.

The Challenges (03:15)

Remote workers can feel isolated or spend more time in a stressful home environment. Weekly planning and making days feel different can help decrease burnout. Remote workers can have reduced levels of engagement with coworkers.

Keep in Touch (05:12)

Managers can accidentally withhold information from remote workers. Having regularly scheduled one-on-one check-ins can increase communication. Video conferencing allows for nonverbal communication.

Goal Setting (01:43)

Expectations on behavior and performance should be clear. Having short-term and long-term goals can help workers understand expectations.
