Even if this isn’t a permanent situation, being prepared for remote workers is always a good thing. The future of work is more and more mobile, so take this opportunity to re-evaluate what you have, and plan for what’s ahead.

2. Help Your Employees Stay Motivated at Home

Working from home can be lonely, and the change of pace can be a difficult transition for some. Here are some great tips for keeping your employees happy, engaged, and productive while they’re working at home, without feeling overwhelmed.

3. You Can Still Be Engaging, Even Remotely

Just because you aren’t sitting in the same room doesn’t mean you can’t hold an engaging and lively conversation with your candidates. Using the 5 tips laid out in this article, you can create an interview experience that is conversational, unique, and makes a lasting impression — while still getting the critical information both parties need out of the process.

4. Maybe It’s Been a While Since You’ve Used Video Interview

Get back to basics with this article on video interviewing must-knows. Video interviews allow individuals to keep their distance, while still allowing the hiring manager to get to know the candidate. As an added bonus, it’s easier to schedule, lets both parties be better prepared, and often makes the person being interviewed more comfortable and at ease when they can do it from the comfort of their own home.
