Many modern companies are rolling out remote work programs to give employees autonomy, have access to top talent around the world, and save resources on office space. With a new approach to work, there are new challenges that need to be addressed.
Gallups research shows that remote workers have a more difficult time sustaining work relationships and being recognized for their work.
