Remote work (full-time work-from-home) is supposed to be the one real benefit of the internet. We got ‘TikTok’ instead.
Imagine if all of us could work from anywhere, anytime, however, we want to, without any barriers.
We are advocates of flexible work, work from anywhere policies, sharing economy, diversity & gender balance at work.To make sure there is real value in this online conference, we got together a phenomenal panel of speakers. See & judge for yourself.
Some say hard work pays off. Four years, the numbers speak for themselves.
Surround yourself with people who have been there, done that.
“I don’t just message my CEO with ‘Hey Joel’ and wait for him to respond. When working remotely, it is highly essential to respect the team member’s time and get straight to the point.”
“Remote work was a necessity for us because we wanted to hire the best talent. Since we didn’t know the labour market or the local language of the city, our founders decided to use their network to hire people remotely. This concept served us in many ways and we decided to stick to it.”
“Whiteboards are an essential part of any team. And for virtual teams, it is more important to have a virtual set up that engages them and keeps them in the loop. So we built Miro. At its core, it creates an intimate virtual whiteboard that helps the team collaborate virtually.”
“Remote workers need the same skills that a traditional office worker would require. However, there are some specific areas of remote work skills that need special attention. If you do not learn the skill of remote work, it will instantly reflect on your work and productivity.”
“I highly believe in referrals when hiring remotely. Since the candidates come through someone I trust, it builds this transitive web of trust between the candidate and me. But that’s not all. Proof of work is also a great way to evaluate candidates.”
“We follow a remote-friendly culture at Trello. We do not say remote-first because we want to give our team members a choice. But what we do focus on is engaging every employee in the organization through defined processes and guidelines.”
