The idea of a remote workforce is appealing. You don’t have to pay for any physical premises to house them all, and you can source the talent you need anywhere in the world. That’s the good news! The bad news is that making full remote teams work can be difficult. As social creatures, most workers need regular contact with others to motivate and inspire them. It is a rare person who can toil away every day in front of their computer screen with no face-to-face interactions with colleagues at all. Although I can wholeheartedly say that this kind of peace and quiet is one of my favourite aspects of freelancing. But it’s just not the way that nature constructed most of us.
Remote teams aren’t impossible. As the following infographic shows, you just need to adopt the right management practices. The benefits of operating a remote team are enormous, both for employees and their employers. The average worker costs US companies around $11,000 per year in desks, chairs, water dispensers, bathroom cleaners, and so on. And workers themselves must spend an enormous $2,000 to $7,000 on their annual commute, so avoiding offices could benefit both.
