Posted by Diana Montero on Apr 14, 2020 4:37:29 PM

In the current COVID-19 crisis, remote working has moved from an occasional or part-time preference to a full-time necessity. "But before the crisis struck ‘business as usual’, it was already a trend on the rise with the amount of people working remotely at least once per week growing 400% since 2010."

Popular among the young professionals, it’s not uncommon to see millennials trading other benefits for flexible work opportunities, including working from home. And it’s popular among the top leaders too who reportedly choose to work remotely on numerous occasions.

With such a rise in remote working, organizations must establish their own best practice guidelines for this new virtual mindset and support employees in order to make the transition a successful one.

Surveys from HBR indicate that roughly 30% of companies prepare employees to have the necessary virtual work skills; however, the content of these sessions is centered on tech skills and company policies rather than on social and interpersonal skills. Here we share our top 10 skills required for building effective remote teams in the following infographic:
