Whether you’re working abroad or working from home, you’ll encounter the same challenges that all teams have. Whether that be productivity, communication or time management, remote working can throw up unique situations. But, it can also throw up unique opportunities to those who prepare accordingly. The beauty is that teams can now be truly global, no matter the size of the business. You could be a business of 3, based in New York, London and Berlin, yet when done right, it’s just as effective as in person.
Yet, no matter if you’re a global corporation, an SME or a freelancer, you have to assess the processes you have in place. What can you improve, what can you streamline, what strength can you highlight? By doing a comprehensive review, you can find the blind spots and shine a light on them before they catch you out. If you do, you’ll be ready to do your best work straight off the bat.
