“When working with a remote team, one must figure out what works best to keep the team productive and motivated. It’s important to have an open line of communication. Time Doctor is one tool I would recommend to help keep things on track and monitor the team without the need to breathe down their necks. It is important to create a systematized approach to projects.

Finally, we’ve found that by paying team members above market rates, we’ve increased quality and retention. There are a lot of people who want to work virtually and many will do so at a reduced rate, however we believe in taking care of our team so that they will take care of us. This approach has resulted in low turnover and most of the team has been with us since we opened the division nearly five years ago.”

Managing remote teams can seem like a daunting process to a lot of leaders. This isn’t the case when you use a tool like Time Doctor. Stay easily informed with real time reporting and get ahead of potential workflow bottlenecks by knowing exactly what everyone is working on.

“Before using Time Doctor, I had very little oversight of my employees’ time allocation.”
