Advancement in technology has made it possible for organisations to hire remote employees. Managing teams working remotely, however, can be a challenge for most managers. Some of the issues you'll encounter include workflow problems, undedicated team members, and communication challenges. However, managing virtual teams should not be a problem if you follow the following tips:

Hire the right people

Hiring employees who have the right qualifications, experience, and skills will save you unnecessary stress. Don’t just pick random people and make them part of your team. Instead, go for the most qualified ones. A person with the right work experience may find it easier to submit quality within the set deadlines. Importantly, you should look beyond the CV by getting to know more about them and checking if they have the right skills for the job. Are the people you are about to hire self-disciplined? Can they work with minimal or no supervision at all?

Use the right communication tools

Numerous digital workplaces tools are available for managing personnel remotely. Go for platforms that can track productivity, facilitate discussions, and share information in real time. Regularly use live video chats as they have a personal touch and leave little room for misunderstanding.

Set clear goals

You should set clear goals for the team members around work hours, project deadlines, and mode of communication. Give out detailed directives on when and how employees should complete the assignments and the expected outcomes.

Organise for face-to-face meetings

Face-to-face meetings have numerous benefits for virtual teams. Physical sessions help strengthen bonds among the members. It gives the members the opportunity to connect and get to know each other. It allows members to develop trust by discarding perceptions they had among themselves. Trust among the employees leads to better productivity and improved morale.
