'Remote work is here and it's revolutionising the way we work' according to Trello who recently released a great guide on the 'Best Advice for Remote Teams Success'.
I wanted to share this with you, but deciding where to post this was a tough choice. There's a 'digital' element when you consider remote working and the tools that are invovled in keeping workers connected wherever they are located. It made sense on this count, to post it in the digital skills group. But then there's the way remote sits in with L&D. How do people keep learning wherever they are. Then there's the role that HR play in helping the culture of an organisation marry up with the change that remote teams bring about.
I've posted this in Employee Engagement but I can imagine it equally applys to the other zones here on the DPG Community.
For the past three years, I've been in a dedicated remote working position here at DPG. Whilst I do spend time at the office or out at events, the majority of my work is done from home. It's not dis-similar to my previous position. Where home-working was much less frequent, there was a large amount of time spent travelling up and down the country, meaning that I was remote from my office-based colleagues.
From what I've seen, there is a definite shift in working, collaborating, communicating and the whole culture and mind-set that sits around this. The guide from Trello is a good one which covers a lot of ground.
I'm interested in how remote working works at your organiation.
- Do you have remote workers?
- How has having a remote team changed things in your organisation?
- What's the mind-set that's needed to make sure a remote team works at it's best?
I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this. You can download the guide from Trello just here
