5 Tips for Maintaining Company Culture in Remote Teams

5 Tips for Maintaining Company Culture in Remote Teams | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
At Maven Wave, building a partially remote workforce that feels just as much a part of our close-knit team as the onsite employees have been integral to our success as a company. Every year, we win awards for our culture and growth, and we’ve learned a lot of lessons along the way.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Here's the quote that reinforces most of the attitudes about remote work. 

 

“If I can’t see them working, how do I know they’re actually working?”

 

This sums up the managerial attitude of the vast majority of my clients. It covers for the excuse of not investing time to define expectations, conduct on-going performance management through one-to-ones, and learning how to coach teams.

5 Reasons Why Employee Recognition Is Essential to Performance Management

5 Reasons Why Employee Recognition Is Essential to Performance Management | Retain Top Talent | Scoop.it
Learn why frequent praise and appreciation benefits any company’s performance management.
Barry Deutsch's insight:

Here's the quote that got my attention:

 

"Gallup found that just one in three U.S. employees felt they’d received recognition for a job well done in the past week."

 

That's a horrible metric. What are you doing to build a strong recognition program into the fabric of your culture?

 

You'll never realize high productivity from your workforce until they feel you appreciate their effort through recognition.
