Remote Success: How My Team Beats Your Team in Their Pajamas | Sessions
Work used to be something done in offices. Today, it's done in coffeeshops, in co-working spaces and on couches across the world. Not only does remote work provide better work/life balance for employees, it can be highly beneficial to employers as well. Benefits include increased employee engagement, higher retention and lower operating costs. In a world where 76% of Millennials would prefer to have a job that pays less money if it offers flexible work, acquiring top talent is becoming more and more difficult without allowing employees virtual work options. As the CEO of a fully remote workforce with 26 full-time employees and 3,000 independent contractors, Chris Dyer has a deep understanding of the benefits and challenges that come with virtual teams. Chris attributes much of this success to creating a phenomenal virtual workforce where employees strive to do their best every single day. In this session, Chris shares secrets for a high-performance culture where virtual employees thrive.
