    Best Practices Cultivating a Healthy and Productive Remote Working Environment

    Best Practices Cultivating a Healthy and Productive Remote Working Environment

    A leading research and advisory company, Gartner, Inc., found that nearly 75% of the 317 CFOs and business finance leaders they surveyed planned to move at least 5% of their formerly on-site workforce into permanently remote positions even after the COVID-19-related quarantines have ended. 

    Zach Peterson, prolific technology content writer, scientist/engineer, and owner and CEO of Northwest Engineering Solutions, joins the OnTrack Podcast to examine the implications of this finding, and to share best practices for creating a viable and productive remote working environment from both a manager’s and employee’s perspective.

    • Suggestions for managers and employees that will ensure their remote teams remain viable and productive
    • The importance of setting clear expectations for your remote team
    • Why you shouldn’t “babysit” your remote workers; the importance of allowing workers to work within their comfort zones
    • Setting clear boundaries: how remote working can upset our work/life balance, and what steps one should take to cultivate it
    • Tackling the myth of slackers in the remote work environment
    • Ideal tools for the remote working environment
