Shopify, Twitter, Coinbase, Facebook will do it, many other companies will follow. Home office and remote working will become the standard in many companies. So far, home office has been something for freelancers or has been allowed by bosses as a treat in the employment contract, but in the future, the work from home will become the standard for millions of people. BUT… What are the good practices, how to practically make the transition from office-first to remote-first, how to keep employees engaged, what culture do we need to adopt, what is the favorable leadership style, and not least, what are the hot new products that will assist this whole change?
In less than a month, How to Web is bringing for the first time in Europe an online technology event dedicated to remote work, with over 15 international experts, including company founders and remote team coordinators, authors, trainers, consultants, and other specialists in teams working remotely.
The RemoteCon event will take place for four days, between June 30 and July 3. During this time, speakers and companies will present online, in front of an international audience, the most important challenges they had faced in the organization and remote management of the teams, but also their solutions to these challenges: from leadership adapted to these new realities and modeling organizational culture in times of crisis, from moving to a new way of organizing teams and improving work processes, to demos of online tools that can successfully solve the problems that may arise from working remotely in a company.
Trending Topics SEE is joining How to Web as a media partner and will be covering some of the most exciting highlights during RemoteCon.
