The current growth in work-at-home employment is unprecedented. Companies all around the world are hiring remote employees to handle essential business tasks outside of a typical office setting. There’s just one problem; managing remote employees is different than managing employees in an office. Now, more than ever, company’s need remote workforce managers who know how to lead and manage remote employees effectively.
