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.

Why do so many companies offer this option? Perhaps it’s because this is what the younger generation of workers expects. Or it could be that it is very difficult to both find and retain top talent, so having flexible work options is necessary for growth and success.

Of course, the big question is how to train and establish effective communication with people you never see in person. Does it work?

Yes, it does, if you have a good plan. Whether you’ve been using remote employees for a while or are new to the game, the following tips offer the best ways to communicate with your valuable remote staff.

"Ving Understands What Safety Managers Need to Improve Training"

One of the biggest problems I've had with safety training platforms is making the training easily accessible on mobile job sites, making it easy to upload in-house training, and technical issues with outdated software. All of those problems have been solved by Ving. It's well-thought-out and easy-to-use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the QR code option. For example, you can print a QR code sticker that explains how to inspect fire extinguishers and post it next to the extinguisher so anyone doing monthly inspections isn't guessing based on training that was six months ago. They can review the training immediately.
