Effective tips for how to manage remote workers

Managing remote workers successfully means managers must have the support of their organization’s IT and Human Resources Department in order to provide flexible work options and communication tools that will differ from the status-quo.

At this stage of the COVID-19 outbreak and with World Health Organization’s declaration of a pandemic, many essential and non-essential businesses around the globe have moved beyond their immediate business continuity and crisis management plans - and work from home directives have quickly become the widespread new and indefinite norm.

It’s a challenge for organizations from both a technology infrastructure and day-to-day operations perspective, and many managers like yourself are most likely facing a crash course in managing remote workers. 

It’s also highly likely that most have never worked 100 per cent-remote before, let alone managed other teams in this environment. And managing remote teams during COVID-19 and the ensuing global unrest may seem like an overwhelming and daunting task.  

Yet, effective management is essential now more than ever, and will require more than just the right technologies – managing a team remotely will require the right type of leadership too. 

Talent Acquisition

Understanding contractor classification types in Canada

The digital transformation is not only changing the way companies do business, it’s also changing the way they use talent to get it done.

Contingent Workforce

What is contractor payrolling?

Amid the rise of the gig economy, more and more organizations are turning to non-traditional workers to quickly and efficiently reach their corporate goals -- so much so that 40 per cent of the U.S. workforce alone is currently made up of contingent workers, with the number expected to rise to 50 per cent by 2050.  

Yet while gig workers are trending toward becoming the norm in most companies, a flexible workforce can open organizations up to a myriad of tax, financial, legal and branding risks not associated with traditional worker programs.

Fortunately, however, there are methods to help mitigate these risks, and organizations don’t have to face the threats that come with a contingent workforce alone.  

One of these methods is outsourcing employer responsibilities like contractor payrolling to a trusted vendor who will manage workers’ wages, bonuses, and deductions as well as provide support during the length of a worker’s assignment(s). The client partner will also identify and implement internal measures to protect organizations from serious risks like unforgiving fines, penalties and negative employer branding.
