Remote team management: Keeping teams motivated when working from home
To keep remote workers motivated in the current business environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic, managers will have to utilize a variety of technology tools and communication methods in their remote team management strategies that encourage engagement, collaboration, satisfaction and accountability among workers.
Remote work is no longer an attractive perk reserved for knowledge workers or business executives, instead, it’s the new and indefinite norm for essential and non-essential workers across the globe.
Yet, despite the rising number of remote workers, business leaders and managers are facing increasing challenges when it comes to remote team management, with some managers admitting to feeling burdened with the added responsibility of keeping their remote teams engaged and productive during work from home directives.
This means that management, both new and tenured, must continue to hone their remote team management skills so that each member of their team feels motivated and valued.
