I recently received the following question:
How do companies prevent remote workers from feeling “left out”?
I’m not a fan of handing off the responsibility of our own career and growth to someone else.
- It is not the companies’ responsibility to make their telecommuters to ‘feel included’.
- It is not the companies’ responsibility to make sure their employees network and build the proper working relationships with the right co-workers, sibling departments, other managers and executives.
- It is not the companies’ responsibility to make sure their employees keep their jobs.
