NSLAP WELLNESS: Managing Teams Remotely

"We expect many things to go back to normal once the COVID-19 pandemic is truly over. However, some workplaces will continue to embrace the remote work model because they find that it works for them. Research finds that employees who occasionally work remotely are “more likely to feel engaged in their jobs than those who never work remotely.” By working from home, some individuals have saved up to $4,000 annually with optimal considerations, while the businesses that employ them save about $11,000 per year for every employee they shift to remote work status. The immediate savings result from increased productivity and reduced turnover, but regardless, it’s safe to say that more people will work remotely from now on.

This article will explore ways to optimize working conditions for individuals who find themselves working at home more often. We will use recent data to answer common questions about trust, productivity, engagement, and mental health for remote teams."
