Google Employees Who Choose To Work From Home Could Soon Face A Pay Cut

Working from home could soon cost you if you’re a Google employee. As the pandemic continues to take the world by storm, many companies are restructuring what work looks like for their employees.

Tips for Managing Your Remote Team Effectively

Conflict on any team can negatively affect productivity and kill morale. However, remote working can bring its unique challenges because interpersonal relationships evolve differently than with on-site teams. Electronic communications cannot convey body language or tone, essential aspects of non-verbal communication. The online disinhibition effect can also make people do and say things they would never do in a traditional office environment. If you’re not carefully managing your remote team, it can be all too easy for problems to develop and fester. Here are some tips for staying ahead of the potential issues and resolving conflict effectively: Onboarding Conflict resolution starts with prevention. Implementing a robust onboarding process will go a long way in minimizing conflict on your distributed teams.
