Remote Team Management
Carlos Castelan’s company shares an article on how to find the right remote employees and how to manage them.
Managing a business takes a lot of ingenuity and drive, no matter what kind of industry you’re in. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only added to that, which is why it’s crucial that your business takes a critical look at your needs (both current future) to help keep things afloat. While smaller businesses often rely on government programs like SBA express bridge loans and the Main Street Business Lending Program to stay in business during these troubled times, larger companies can often avoid these types of loans by making internal changes, giving them a better chance of getting things under control without the use of external sources of funding.
Once you’ve gotten your finances under control, you can start thinking about putting together a remote team. Not only do you have to be extremely focused and dedicated, but you also have to be great at employee relations in order to ensure your team can go remote seamlessly. It can be tricky to maintain good communication with employees and keep everyone on the same page. Finding the right people for the job, if needed, and learning how to keep them motivated when there’s no office environment can be done; it just takes a little creativity. Knowing what mistakes to avoid will help you keep the process smooth.
Key points covered include:
- Finding the right people
- Keeping communication clear
- Staying organized

The Internet of Things has caused much disruption in the retail industry where only the most agile and innovative survive and thrive. Carlos Castelan’s company blog explains how to transform or build businesses to match customer expectations.
There’s a great line courtesy of Albert Einstein where he was quoted as saying, ‘If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask… for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.’ Though we (thankfully) do not have a problem that our lives depend on today, the line epitomizes the spirit of reflection that many people take at the start of the year to make changes for the coming 12 months.
Areas covered in this article include:
- Personalized experience
- Pricing and promotion optimization
- Process transformation
