Creating a Culture & Best Practices to Support Remote Workers
June 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
Nearly half of the US workforce is estimated to spend at least part of the time working outside of the office. This brings the benefits of greater flexibility, higher productivity, and better employee retention. However, it comes at the risk of being “out of sight, out of mind”. Remote workers often face becoming burned out, increased feelings of loneliness, and difficulty integrating into teams.
With employees based in different parts of the US and other countries, Red Door Interactive has been repeatedly recognized as one of San Diego’s best companies to work for. In this session, CEO Reid Carr, shares how his company developed a culture that places a high value on flexibility, and then put behaviors, processes, and infrastructure in place to enable its employees to be successful no matter where they are located.
Whether you are working remotely, or managing someone who is, come learn about:
- Understanding the needs and motivations for why employees may prefer to work remotely
- Why checking in frequently with remote workers matters
- Assessing employees’ performance based on accountability to deliverables, not time.
- Adopting and implementing processes to help remote workers feel included and aligned to the same goals as everyone else
- What tools and technology systems can effectively support a distributed workforce
With nearly 20 years of digital marketing experience, Reid Carr has built Red Door Interactive, a full-service marketing and advertising agency with hubs in San Diego, Denver and Orange County, to change how marketing firms service brands that are fighting for market share. He has built a fiercely independent agency over the last 15 years that has been awarded for both fast growth and effective culture by Advertising Age, Inc. Magazine and San Diego Business Journal. Reid has been a finalist for Entrepreneur of the Year from E&Y and Most Admired CEO by the San Diego Business Journal. Red Door has been selected as the Best Place to work in SD.
