This infographic has 5 tips that will guide you in establishing (or improving) effective communication with your remote employees.
Let’s say you own or manage a small business, and you just found some great new people you’d like to hire. There’s only one problem. They don’t live in the area, and you don’t have any money to offer them for relocation expenses.
If you’re savvy, you will do what over 50% of companies are already doing: let employees work remotely.
That’s right. According to the following infographic, 57% of companies have a formal policy allowing staff to work off-site.
