I’ve expanded by client base to include clients from Tampa, St. Petersburg and Orlando. Each month, I’m spending a few days in the sunnier climate to not only meet and work with new clients and businesses, but also to recharge my batteries.
An HR practice I need to employ as my business grows will be to depend on a remote workforce that I don’t see regularly. I’ve gotten good practice at working remotely with others through my Virtual Internship Program students, so I feel I am prepared to go even further by eventually hiring remote freelancers and eventually employees.
Trust and time management are the two crucial elements of remote work. I’ve found my best interns have reported to me on time, managed their time well, and worked with limited supervision.
If you’d like to find out more how to manage Virtual Interns or staff, contact me and I’ll be happy to offer you some insights.
