The All-Remote Team Management Reality – Social Cast Ep. 17

As companies around the world begin transitioning to an online format, many employees are left floundering in the learning curve of remote teamwork. Working remotely can be tricky for employees, but also for managers as daily operations shift from the office into living rooms.

The first step to all-remote management is establishing a clear channel of communication. Whether it’s over Slack or WhatsApp, consistent communication is one of the most crucial and challenging aspects of working remote.

Implementing weekly one-on-one virtual meetings is a great way for managers to connect with employees to answer any questions, assign new projects and evaluate productivity.

In this episode we had Christina Mann, Socialbakers Director of Marketing Operations and Field Marketing, join again to discuss how she manages a remote team. Christina has years of experience managing a team that is spread out all over the world, and we talk about the ins and outs of doing this effectively.
