Technology and the internet have engendered the rise of remote work. This means companies that offer the option of remote work can experience multiple benefits, such as a diverse range of job applicants and reduced operating costs, while employees can pursue opportunities far from where they live. To be successful, employers should set clear standards for success for their remote employees, encourage regular communication, and ensure employees have the tools they need to do their work. Employees that are successful in a remote role are self-directed, motivated, and are able to stick to a set schedule and maintain a strong social and professional network even without the structure of a traditional office.
