Building Up Remote Work Opportunities in Your Company Culture

Making Sure Your Employees Fit Your Company Culture

company cultureRemote workers are increasingly becoming a part of many company teams. According to a Gallup poll, nearly one-third of those working out of the office do so up to five days a week. For companies with remote workers, this means they are learning how to adopt a work from home scenario in their company culture.

Gallup surveyed 15,000 adults and found that 43 percent spent at least some time working remotely over the last year. Thirty-one percent said they were working from home four to five days a week, and that’s an increase of seven percent since 2012.

More and more organizations are listening to their employees, establishing a company culture that puts the employees’ needs first, and that includes remote work opportunities. Many companies are tracking the results of their work-from-home programs, and they see successful outcomes.

While the move to remote work opportunities can be seen as a perk for current employees, for many organizations, it’s about attracting the best talent, a talent that will pick a company that offers these opportunities over the one that hasn’t embraced it in its company culture.

What about the companies that are still wondering which employees will thrive in a more autonomous work environment? They’re perhaps not willing to take a chance with an employee who might turn out to be less productive at home than they are in the workplace. Rather than risk it, they might just avoid it all together in their strategy for building up company culture. They might also be missing out on the best talent looking for work in their industry.

To know how someone is going to perform in a remote work situation, it takes a thorough behavioral assessment. Bring in a predictive index consultant to help you optimize your strategies for gaining the competitive advantage. Your employees have a variety of skillsets, some of which will differ from others, and some of these skills aren’t going to be apparent up front.

When you go through a behavioral assessment, you can ascertain which employees will be a perfect fit, not only for remote work opportunities, but also when it comes to which ones will work well together on teams. Furthermore, companies have relied on behavioral assessment to pinpoint future leaders.
