Consider these ways of foster engagement and peak performance.

What does the first trip to a new job appear to be for a remote employee? Work attire: likely comfy clothes. Start time: flexible, perhaps with a “welcome to the team” conference call at 9 a.m. First assignment: Strat to get acquainted with new-hire training tools. There’s very little oversight for a fresh remote employee, meaning the first-day jitters are most likely less of a concern.

Studies also show that home-based employees are more productive. Aside from the benefit this brings to employers, remote work includes dreamy perks for employees: work-life balance, flexible hours and unlimited workspace options.
