Hiring remote workers can be a great asset to growing your business. Many businesses have begun employing remote workers to lower costs, increase employee flexibility, and to gain access to a larger pool of high-quality talent. Here are three things you can do to develop accountability for your employees.

Number 1: Establish Clear Expectations – No matter what kind of work your employees are performing, it’s important to have clearly defined goals, expectations, and deliverables. Develop a specific plan at the beginning of the project and make updates as needed to make sure everyone is clear on expectations. It doesn’t matter how good your remote workers are if they don’t understand what they are supposed to do or how you are going to measure success.

Number 2: Regular Meetings – One of the challenges of having remote workers is accounting for the time they spend working. The purpose of these meetings is to go over the status of projects and provide assistance where it may be needed. By holding these team meetings, everyone will know the progress of a project and be able to respond to changing needs or challenges.

Number 3: Use Technology – There are numerous technology solutions available to help you and your team be more accountable. Cloud-based collaboration services, project management tools, video conferencing, and more can help your teams be more productive, and track the progress of their work.

By setting clear expectations, holding team members accountable, and using the right tools, teams can work effectively without having to step foot into an office.
