Challenges of the new trend
Remote work is steadily on the rise. It is estimated that there will be 1 billion digital nomads worldwide by 2035. Switching to remote mode gives companies access to global talent pool, helps to increase retention rate, and save some operational costs. However, it is not always easy to keep your team together and build a global business that functions in a virtual world. When it comes to remote work, there are also specific challenges to be prepared for.
Lack of face-to-face communication is the most obvious one. Managing a team distributed over different time zones leads to miscommunication, slower turnaround, and isolation. Intercultural teams enrich the company culture, but how do you get together in a video call when your team is spread on all five continents?
On top of that, many corporate leaders are reluctant to the idea of remote work because they feel like losing control over employees and don’t have enough trust in self-management. Adapting the hiring process and handling administrative aspects of a remote company represent a whole other set of challenges.
Get together and network with peers
Fortunately, there’s an easy way to overcome the above challenges by sharing knowledge and best practices with other remote teams from different industries. If you are running a remote team with people from all over the world and have always wanted to get together with international and like-minded peers at a conference in a dream location, then Running Remote in Bali from 29-30 June might just be the perfect fit for you.
Whether you are a digital nomad, an entrepreneur, a remote worker or a manager it is important to get inspired and network with other founders and business leaders who are also running remote teams. You will gain inspiration, knowledge and advice from people who are exactly in the same situation as you are.
This conference is not only a great opportunity to meet and mingle with thought leaders, founders, tech companies and globally distributed teams. The aim of Running Remote is to shape the future of work, build an active community of remote workers, and to educate professionals from every corner of the world. Topics such as dealing with multicultural teams, communicating across time zones and keeping your team motivated will be discussed. Running Remote is the world’s largest remote work conference focusing on management aspects of this topic. Here you can learn all about the latest trends of digital work, best hiring practices, company culture, financial management and improvement of life-work balance.
