Action can be taken more effectively by establishing structure and clarifying what needs to be accomplished. Leaders and managers should encourage over-communication while working remotely. Any and all work-related information should be shared within the team.

Fremont, CA: Business is rapidly evolving in terms of its nature, appearance, and pace. Work roles were traditionally handled in person and in the workplace. However, with technological advancements and the availability of the internet in even the most remote regions throughout the world, some employees may be able to work remotely. Leadership and management will face certain problems as a result of this potential. We examine the best strategies for managing remote personnel.

Key tips for managing remote employees:

Maintaining Clear Communication

To avoid misconceptions, it would be ideal for team leaders to start things off right by communicating clearly. If an employee has an emergency or is late in completing a task, the channels via which they should inform should be obvious. Working hours and goals should be clearly communicated to the team so that everyone is on the same page.

Recognize Efforts of Employees

In traditional workplace settings, some recognition can come through a pat on the back, mentions at a meeting, or being on the wall as an award winner or as the employee of the month or year. Employees working remotely may feel left out and unseen as they work behind the scenes. It's best for managers to appreciate their efforts by making a special mention at meetings or acknowledging them through the communication channels or company newsletters.

One-on-one Meetings

In typical office environments, a pat on the back, a mention in a meeting, or being listed on the wall as an award winner or employee of the month or year can provide some acknowledgment. As they operate behind the scenes, employees working remotely may feel left out and unnoticed. Managers should recognize their employees' efforts by making a particular note of them during meetings or acknowledging them through the company's communication channels or newsletters.
