What objectives define success?
What else should you consider when adjusting your processes to better align with new circumstances?
- Employee evaluations. Do these need to change with remote employees? Do you measure anything differently?
- Employee/supervisor interactions must now be scheduled. How often? Do you need to adjust the frequency based on the needs of individual employees? How do you support those who need more feedback and direction? How do you even know that they need more attention?
- Will your hiring criteria change for jobs where people will be working remotely? Have you identified any personality traits that will ensure that they can work well remotely? Do you have minimum requirements for their home Internet speed? Must they have a certain amount of technical expertise so they can set up their work-at-home technology?
- How will you build rapport among team members and pass on company culture? Video can help, but it’s not the same as meeting in person. Do you need to make any changes in the way meetings are conducted?
