Supervising Remotely

The key to successfully supervising remote employees starts with the same fundamentals of good supervision, but the way in which you do it looks different. Everyone on your team is adjusting to this change differently. Before making assumptions about the level of contact or support an employee needs, it is best to check in with each of them to get a sense of their comfort level with remote work and managing their workload during this time.
