Remote Work Culture

Intentionally defining and nurturing your remote work culture is essential in building an organization.  It helps define the norms, values, behaviors, and expectations from each team member, and makes it clear what will get someone hired, promoted, or even fired at your company. It’s like the constitution of a country that sets forth the rules and guidelines by which everyone must abide.

A solid remote work culture can help to improve communication and collaboration among team members, foster a sense of community, and increase overall productivity and business metrics. Additionally, having a well-defined remote work culture can help attract and retain top talent, as more and more people are now looking for flexible work arrangements.

When creating or revising your culture deck,
there are a few key elements to keep in mind:

Define the core values of the organization. These should be the guiding principles that everyone in the organization lives by, regardless of location. Remember that these need to be broken down into behaviors, as big words like “integrity” can mean very different things for different people.

Communicate and frequently share reminders of your remote work culture with all your team members. It is essential that everyone is on the same page and understands the expectations.

Encourage feedback and input from your team members. The remote work culture deck should be a live document that evolves to meet the needs of the organization and its employees.

Have a system in place to hold everyone accountable. This could include regular check-ins, performance & feedback sessions, or other methods of tracking progress.

Celebrate success. Ensure and reward employees who embody the spirit and behaviors desired by your values and policies in their everyday work.

A robust remote work culture deck can be a significant asset for any organization. By defining and communicating the culture, you lay the foundation to set your team up for success.
