If you've ever managed a virtual team member or an entire remote team before, you know how difficult it can be to keep everyone aligned. If you're about to manage a virtual team for the first time, there are a few major challenges you need to carefully consider before work begins:

  1. How to get your team organized without seeing them in person.
  2. How to encourage the company vision without holding a face-to-face conversation.
  3. How to ensure team members work diligently without sitting in the same office.
  4. How to keep a good project pace without constant communication.

We've created a remote work policy checklist of the processes, tools, and mindsets you'll need to create solutions for those challenges and keep your virtual team on point.

Check out the infographic below to get a visual on the checklist, and download and print our handy accompaniment: the Virtual Team Management Guide PDF. Go through it with your boss and colleagues at work.
