How do you keep remote workers from feeling like second-class citizens?  

How do you keep remote workers from feeling like second-class citizens?  

Many employers, however, “have let remote work happen rather than make it happen. They haven’t done the (management) training,” says Kate Lister, president of consultancy Global Workplace Analytics.



It's all too easy to forget that person who dialed into the meeting remotely (and for them to forget about you). Good communication doesn't just happen, you have to make it happen. That's true for face-to-face or remote employees. Dell, National Equity Fund, and many others make it work in a big way and reap the benefits in attraction/retention, engagement, cost reductions, and more.

Emotional Intelligence—A key skill for the future, particularly for managers of remote teams 

Emotional Intelligence—A key skill for the future, particularly for managers of remote teams 

"No amount of technological wizardry or personal autonomy negates the fact–which has long been true for office-bound workers as well–that job satisfaction is still closely tied to having an effective, emotionally intelligent boss."



Importantly, the article cautions:

  • Don't forget your remote team members. One examples cites a financial services firm that insists if one person is attending a meeting remotely, everyone else must attend using the same tool.
  • Establish trust by taking the time to get to know your remote team; sharing information about who you/they are as a person strengthens relationships.
  • Talk less and listen more. Emotionally intelligent managers excel at asking effective questions to draw their people out.

Does your workplace strategy help people connect with others? If not, perhaps it should.

Does your workplace strategy help people connect with others? If not, perhaps it should.

Self-reflection, introspection and some degree of solitude are important parts of a psychologically healthy life. But somewhere along the line we seem to have gotten the balance wrong. Because far from confirming our insistence that “happiness comes from within,” a wide body of research tells us almost the exact opposite."


Time use studies show the average person spends little more than 30 minutes a day communicating and socializing! We are eating alone more, attending fewer social events, and "hanging out" virtually rather than face to face.


Yet we know good social relationships are essential to both happiness and our health. And we know having friends at work is an important factor in employee engagement.


What are you doing to encourage human connectedness?
