The COVID-19 pandemic put many businesses to the test: Can we function as one company with remote workers in several locations? While some businesses have mixed reactions to the experience, others are choosing to maintain the arrangement or turn to a hybrid workforce – some on-site and some continuing remotely – to reap positive benefits, such as downsizing office space and thus, real estate costs. Long-term arrangements may not have worked two decades ago, but improved technologies in broadband and videoconferencing have eliminated many impediments to the remote work arrangement. If you are just starting a business, being proactive about the challenges of managing a remote work team increases your chances of a positive outcome.
