Hiring for Remote work

To hire for a remote culture, look for candidates who have the specific characteristics needed to work effectively and maintain personal well-being while working from home. It’s important to consider whether candidates have the innate personal and professional characteristics to work effectively in a virtual workplace, and whether they will be happy and fulfilled working from home in the long term.

Look for candidates who are self-motivated, self-directed, strong communicators, self-confident, and accountable. These characteristics allow remote employees to work effectively and consistently without in-person oversight, figure out problems proactively, communicate clearly, confidently execute tasks without oversight, and take ownership of assigned outcomes.
