We're just hitting the tail end of Telecommuter Appreciation Week, and it's a well-deserved week. Remote workers often get a bad rap - there are negative assumptions about working in pyjamas, being emotionally distant, and being tough to collaborate with. Nevertheless, there are tons of benefits to allowing telecommuting, including increases in productivity, decreases in turnover, and even environmental benefits.
We know just how important it is to keep employees engaged. We've talked about it many times before. But keeping someone feeling appreciated when they aren't in the same four walls as you is a tough ask of a manager. So we talked to a number of leaders around the Halogen office about how they keep their remote employees feeling appreciated, involved, and engaged.
