Is your remote team engaged with their work? Are they productive and happy?
If not, it’s crucial to focus on what you, as a project manager, can do to improve things.
Keeping remote team members happy and engaged can be tricky. In the office, it’s usually clear who’s slacking off, facing burnout, or simply having a bad day. Remotely, you may have very few clues to go on. If one of your team members is quieter than usual on Slack, for instance, that could mean they’re feeling disengaged … or it could mean that they’re busy doing focused work.
