Enabling the Success of Remote Workers

Remote work is here to stay. What spawned out of necessity during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a must-have for many employees. In fact, 60% of employees said they’d quit rather than return to their in-person offices, according to a Flexjobs survey— only 2% said they’d like to return to in-person work full time. These statistics illustrate how valuable employees find remote working arrangements. 

Here are some tips to help set remote employees up for success:
  • Provide extensive training materials
  • Celebrate remote employees’ success 
  • Check in on remote employees frequently
  • Provide in-person workstations
  • Encourage remote employees to communicate frequently with their direct supervisors 
  • Include remote workers in workplace activities
Remote employees face unique challenges when working from home. Taking a proactive interest in their success can help them feel more included and reduce burnout. Reach out to HBS for remote employee resources that can help in this effort.
