How to Successfully Transition a Team, As Well As Tools That Businesses Can Utilize for Remote Work

Creating policies around hiring, communication, project management, productivity, and security will help companies effectively transition their team and operations to work remotely. Below are details on how to successfully transition a team, as well as tools that businesses can utilize for remote work.

  • The number of American companies that offer remote work options increased by 40 percent over the last five years.
  • Eighty percent of employees prefer to work remotely at least some time.
  • Thirty-five percent of employees would change jobs to work remotely full time.
  • A company “can save an average of $11,000 per half-time telecommuter per year. The primary savings are the result of increased productivity, lower real estate costs, reduced absenteeism and turnover, and better disaster preparedness.”
  • Employees save between $2,500 and $4,000 annually by working remotely half the time because of savings on traveling, parking, and purchasing food.

Effectively Transitioning Employees and Operations to Work Remotely

Hiring

  • Transitioning employees to work remotely or even building a remote workforce means managers need to create a hiring strategy that explains “work expectations and responsibilities.” For example, employers may want to focus on potential employees’ soft skills, which includes communication skills, to make sure they will successfully work remotely.
