    Good afternoon,

    In these current times we have a good deal of employees working remotely. It is going well and if we decide to keep this mode of operation for the foreseeable future, does anyone have a type of communication that works where the employee documents their work for the day?  I am not saying I have any doubts they are not working, but I think there needs to be some accountability if an employee is working from home because they don't  feel comfortable being in the office right now.

    Any information would certainly be helpful and appreciated greatly!!!

    Our process is simple. We have a morning Zoom meeting each day to see where everyone is on their work, answer questions etc. That tends to keep them accountable because we will ask about progression of their work.

    At the end of each day we ask them to email a Task list for the day so we can see in general what they accomplished.

    If someone is extremely low on work we know it is hard to motivate so we will assign measurable tasks to them to complete.

    Why not (just) clearly define the outcomes each WFH worker is responsible for?


    Achieving those outcomes while representing your firm as Ambassadors in your marketplace legally, ethically and professionally should be what matters more than how, where or when they got their work done.


    Admittedly, this is easy to say and hard to do because it represents a huge paradigm shift for most Supervisors who have relied on "you have to see 'em to know they're working" theory.


    Keep it simple and be available if they need help meeting their goals that you've both agreed on.
