The future of work is here, and we have the proof. The evidence comes in the form of the many industry-leading companies that are championing remote work. Each distributed team that closes a deal, sends off a successful campaign, or builds a better product is setting a powerful example that remote work is here to stay.
When we launched our new remote work guide, we asked nine of the most advanced remote companies out there for advice. And over the past month, we’ve been thrilled to help build out a conversation about #embraceremote alongside some of the best remote experts out there.
The result is a wealth of information across the internet for tackling some of the most pressing remote issues: UNICEF’s Office of Innovation showed us how their global team works successfully across extreme distances. Evernote shared their best remote productivity tips for individuals and teams. Buffer uncovered the science behind why working from bed is a bad idea. Litmus provided their real-world process for getting into the remote frame of mind. Zapier put together the remote workers’ toolkit, Stack Overflow focused on the remote developer’s experience, and Automattic (makers of Wordpress) looked at the equalizing potential of remote teams in the future of work.
In fact, we uncovered more great ideas than we could fit in the guide, so we’ve created this infographic of the best advice from these stellar remote experts. These 10 nuggets of wisdom are a great jumping off point for teams to build a foundation of remote work success.
