The “anywhere office” trend, which is expected to grow in the post-pandemic, brings management challenges for companies and leaders
By Victor Sena
In the post-pandemic, the world should be different. Among the main trends is the possibility for people to work from anywhere, something that is only possible with the popularization of remote work.
At first, there must be a nationalization of the Brazilian workforce, according to experts heard by Exame, which will increase competition in the labor market. This will have effects mainly for the most qualified professional. Among the challenges that arise for companies are the integration of new employees, the dissolution of a culture that values those who personally go to offices and the monitoring of productivity. When looking at companies that hire professionals from other countries, the time zone challenge also appears.
Check out some tips given by Renato Bolzan, CEO of Invillia, a company that has its team working 100% remotely, to better manage a team that is “spread out”.
For Bolzan, it is necessary to totally redefine the concept of what it means to be present and committed to the company.
1. Be a good leader
It is essential that the company has a management that is prepared for the digital culture. In addition, it must involve leaders, so that they are the first “ambassadors” of the anywhere office. They must ensure the conditions, knowledge and tools that add value to the connected work.
2. Take care of people
Thinking about the team should be something even more present when the company decides to put the teams totally remote or hybrid. The “where” is no longer important, but the “how” is absolutely critical. Not only professionally, but also personally.
3. Create an environment of trust
With distance, creating a secure environment and mutual trust between everyone is extremely important. Clear, fluid and transparent communication is one of the secrets of managing a team that works remotely.
4. Focus on personal development
Leadership by example, discipline and personal development remain valuable, even stronger.
5. Pay attention to data and metrics
Making decisions based on metrics, data, performance indicators, individual and collective development, are fundamental factors when the work does not happen in person.
6. Know how to connect people
It is necessary to redefine the concept of what it means to be present in the company. A good leader has the fundamental role of understanding the individualities of each employee and knowing how to make the connection between them.
7. Ensure cultural fit
It is the role of good leaders to be guardians of culture, motivators, provocateurs, courageous. They are who inspire respect and truth. Communication without limits and leadership proximity to the entire community, as well as sponsoring initiatives and experiences of cultural practices aimed at the evolution of corporate culture, is essential.
