Tips for managing a remote workforce

Managing a remote workforce presents a range of leadership challenges and considerations.

In the Summer edition of OTA's Connections Magazine, WorkPlacePLUS provides tips to assist healthcare managers in the following areas, which can be particularly challenging when staff members are working off-site or in people's homes:

  • Monitoring Staff Performance

  • Addressing Workplace Conflict

  • Protecting Employee Mental Health

The two common threads throughout our management tips for a remote workforce are the importance of knowing the organisational policies and processes, and the importance of regular, transparent, 1:1 communication between supervisors and staff.
