Almost half of the US workforce works remotely and over half of them have been left out of important meetings. Also, 2/3 say they deal with challenges they would not encounter in an office setting.
Remote workers can seemingly disappear because they are not physically present, but how to be more visible so your team wouldn’t forget that you exist?
Let the team know if you’re present or not – you can do this easily by changing your status to away on your messaging app
Speak up – when you’re not physically present, speak up to be heard (can be tempting to push mute button during meetings, but... don’t)
Create a professional working environment at home – helps you be more productive and makes it easier to disconnect from work
