When your company transitioned to remote work, hot smoothly did that go? Was there a lot of back and forth about how to keep people accountable now that they were working in a place where they weren’t in your direct line of site? As it turns out, some of the smoothest transitions came in companies that trusted their workers to get the job done. After all, if you hire someone to do a job, shouldn’t trusting them to do that job be a natural extension of that? Remote work isn’t as big a deal as many employers pretend it is. The fact of the matter is that just about any job that is done on a computer can be done anywhere, and all it takes is a little trust in your remote workforce to make it happen.
Workers who feel trusted are happier, more engaged, and more productive than those who don’t feel trusted at work. Learn more about the psychology behind trusting remote workers from the infographic below.
