Whether it’s the software development team in Prague, regional sales reps scattered across the country, a contract manufacturer in Shenzen or a CEO who prefers working from her Caribbean beach house in the summer, there’s a good chance that everyone is in separate locations (maybe even hemispheres!). And this is just the start. Your organization is likely going to get even more distributed in the coming years, with nearly 75% of the workforce expected to be remote by 2020.
Don’t worry, just because your employees are spread across the country or globe doesn’t mean the team will be impossible to manage. By imposing some order and taking advantage of handy tech tools and strategies, you can help keep everyone connected and on the same page.
