A common mistake a boss will make is assuming a remote employee won’t be productive. The reality is most remote workers do the exact opposite and work LONGER hours from home. The issue here is a disruption in a healthy work-life rhythm that leads to decreased productivity and frustration.
The solution as a manager is to help employees establish boundaries between work and personal time. Create a schedule with a start and stop time and encourage your team to stick with it. You’ll have a happy, productive team as a result!
