9 IC Experts Share Their #1 Tip to Engage a Distributed Workforce

The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the workplace. The way we work, communicate and interact with our colleagues has drastically changed in no time.

In the United States alone, 62% of employees worked at home during the pandemic. That’s up from about 25% a few years ago. With a majority of companies planning to shift to a heavier focus on remote work, the question on every communicator’s mind is: “how do I engage my remote, distributed workforce?”

We’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that there are a lot of companies and IC professionals that have been engaging a distributed workforce even before the pandemic started.

The bad news is that, unfortunately, there really isn’t a 1-size-fits-all. So that’s why we went out and got a few more opinions.
