Want to become a pro at working from home? Earlier today, we held our first Quartz at Work (from home) workshop, “Remote Control.” If you missed it, don’t worry. Quartz members can watch the entire event below. And here are some of the key takeaways for teams that are shifting to remote and distributed models:
Mimic your office culture as much as possible. Schedule digital lunches or happy hours on Slack or Zoom, create “fun” Slack channels based on shared interests to create a sense of community and foster cultural moments without seeing each other in person.
Don’t expect normalcy. You and your team might not immediately perform at your best. Schedule more frequent check-ins until everyone is more comfortable.
