What Makes A Great Remote Worker?

In addition to the normal methods we use to screen job candidates, and the tactics we use to judge whether those candidates are a fit for the organization, those same leaders have found that hiring remote workers and setting them up for success, requires candidates are evaluated for more than just their knowledge, skills, abilities, and past experience.

In this episode, we’ll review the three biggest questions that leaders need to answer when evaluating potential new hires.

Are they collaborators?
Are they communicators?
Are they self-motivated?

Beyond just “Can they do the job?” these questions answer the even bigger question of “Can they do the job remotely?”
