I'm Dermot Dennehy, CEO of Manage Remote Teams.
Following a successful corporate career, I have run my own businesses for the last 20 years on an international scale in industries such as consultancy, technology, eCommerce, luxury and now hybrid/remote working. I have been very lucky to work with some amazing business partners, investors and teams without which, I would not have been so successful.
In 2014, largely inspired by trailblazing remote (mostly) tech companies, we eventually gave up our London office in favour of hot-desking, coffee shop meetings and working from our respective homes. We did this while working with internationally located remote teams.
Using that vast knowledge and our experience of managing remote teams in Asia, Europe and the UK, we have created a 7-point programme for organisations of all sizes to ensure they become exceptional hybrid employers.
We work with SMEs, Enterprise size organisations and charities of all sizes in the UK, Europe, Asia and the US.
The Genie Is Out The Bottle
The future of hybrid working is likely to be shaped by a number of factors, including advances in technology, changes in social, economic conditions and shifts in employer attitudes towards remote work.
BUT, none of this matters if we continue to manage our employees in the same way we did before the pandemic.
The traditional approach to managing employees is simply not effective in this new reality. We need to adapt and find new ways to support and motivate our employees, especially given the added stress and uncertainty that many are experiencing.
That goes way beyond the practicalities of deciding how many days are worked in the office and who works with whom.
We know that when companies become consciously adept at operating with remote or hybrid teams, two things happen in a loop:
First, meaningful productivity, creativity and loyalty increase.
Second, employees have a chance to have a true work-life balance, which in turn, is energising and motivating.
