Alexander Embiricos is the CEO of Remotion. In this day and age, the vast majority of companies have employees that work remotely whether it is hybrid or fully remote. It can be tricky to figure out how to work alongside these employees but today’s guest aims to change that. Alexander joins host Molly McGrath to talk about how to communicate with remote workers and embrace the remote work culture.

Takeaways:

  • Your employees and even your contracts can do even more if you just empower them and believe in them.
  • The biggest thing you lose when you let go of the office is people talking to each other outside of work related needs. The human interaction of getting to know someone personally disappears.
  • The hardest part about remote working is that it makes creating relationships with your co-workers more difficult than normal.
  • You want to continue to support remote workability for your employees. This allows them to work in an environment they are comfortable with and work more productively.
  • You can create a call with your co-workers where you mute yourselves the entire time, and just casually do your work and you can unmute to talk about life.
  • Employee retention is something that many companies struggle with but it can be solved by having a work environment that people enjoy heading into.
  • As a leader, it is your job to structure the environment around your company. You can do little things like showing appreciation for your co-workers.

Quote of the Show:

3:44 “Your employees and even your contractors can do a lot more than they might be doing for you right now, if only you can empower them, which is to create a context where they can do what they wanna do for you and then basically get out of their way.”
