Essential Tips for Managing a Newly-Remote Team [Infographic]


Home is quickly becoming the new office. Not only are more people choosing to work from home but an increasing number of employers are also finding it more beneficial to have employees working remotely. Let’s look at managing a newly-remote team.

According to a recent Tech Republic report, for instance, 78% of employees now work remotely some of the time, with 58% working from home at least once a month. About 36% work from home at least once a week.

While 36% might not seem like a huge number, it represents a 400% increase compared to 10 years ago. In the 2010 census, only 9.5% of the population said that they work from home at least once a week.
