Working from Home – Integrating them into the team

How do you help your remote workers feel like part of the team? To find out, we gathered advice from professionals who’ve worked from home, managed remote workers, and studied them. Here’s what they said:

  • Watch out for overwork, not underwork.
  • Schedule regular one-on-one check-ins.
  • Give them permission to make decisions on their own.
  • Accommodate them in meetings.
  • “Humanize” them.
  • Keep the door open.
  • Keep a workspace available for them in the office.
