Remote working should be viewed by an organisation as a strategy. Therefore, chalking out clear procedural rules and guidelines is very important.
Despite not being in-house, remote employees should have all kinds of access channels to the management in order to make sure that the remoteness does not inhibit a timely operation.
A training course or orientation should be organised for newly-hired remote employees in order to guide them to the intricacies, pitfalls and benefits of working remotely.
There should be a fair assessment of the performances of remote employees in order to encourage them further.
In order to have a good assessment, achievable goals should be setup for the remote professional as it will help them have clarity in their achievement.
There needs to be total unambiguousness on the parameters of work quality which should be accepted by remote professionals at all levels.
If a remote professional is in direct contact with the client, it should be given a key assessment on it.
Technology has changed things quite a lot for this era. If a company has good infrastructure, it will easily be able to manage all its remote employees in a through fashion. Due to new means of communication, it is safe to say that nothing will be lost in the reading.
Having regular audio-visual meetings with a group of remote employees at the same time can also help in managing them and listening to their suggestions.
