Temporarily transitioning your team from in-house to remote is one thing; making it permanent is another and requires additional planning.

Although most employees can be hired or transitioned to working remotely, not every employee will be cut out for remote work. Some employees may not work well alone or may not be productive, and there may also be skills gaps. It’s important to first understand your processes and then take a look at your workforce to see if there are employees who already struggle with being productive without supervision. This is a tough part. Your company may not be able to easily transition all of its workforce without additional training or, unfortunately, letting go of some staff. Before letting any staff go, consider the different types of training, setting performance goals and measurements, and talk with your employees about what is being contemplated.
