Did you know there are people who help companies go remote? Yes, and they’re called remote work consultants!
These are experts who know how best remote teams work and they will take your company from the office to an all-remote setup quickly and effectively.
Some of the services they provide:
Design a remote workflow
Train the team
Write remote work policies
Find remote talents
Provide ongoing coaching and support
Getting the company ready to work remotely can take weeks or even months. Experts need to get to know the team, operations and business needs. Only then can they design and propose a suitable workflow for working remotely.
“It depends on the needs of the team. For some, it could take a day, for others a year. On average, our change management sprints take 3-6 weeks.”
– Laurel Farrer (Founder, Distribute Consulting)
With a lot of companies now working from home due to COVID-19 restrictions without the possibility to really prepare, consultants need to adapt their programs.
“My usual program when helping companies to go remote is 6 weeks from the kickoff meeting to the pilot program, and it works great. Most companies don’t have 6 weeks now so… I created a fast-paced 2-week consultancy program that doesn’t compromise the quality but demands more effort from me, the managers and the teams.”
– Gonçalo Hall (Founder, Remote Work Movement)
