Engaging your remote workforce

4 keys to engaging your remote workforce

We talk about the remote workforce as if these colleagues are any different than the ones sitting next to you in the office. As I was writing about this for TalentCulture, I realized that in order to truly achieve employee empowerment and engagement, we need to find a way to make “remote” and “in the office” not two separate things.
One big issue with working remotely is, unsurprisingly, being remote. But what does that really mean. Are people less willing to work? Are they less able to do a job? The whole issue starts with the idea that the office is the center of the company. As leaders, we need to take down those barriers between the office and “the others” outside.
We need to transform digital interaction into personal interactions, and (surprise, surprise) mobile technology helps you to do that. We need to make reaching our people a priority and not take the easy path by excluding all those not in the office. And, we need to finally stop judging people by the presence in a place and prioritize results over time. Easy, right?
While it sometimes feels like this is a technology challenge, it is actually not. This shift in approach is a cultural change and can be summed up in one concept: people. You don’t single out left-handed people and you shouldn’t do it for your remote people. Aspire to create a workforce in which remote work is not only accepted, but also a part of everyday life.
