Since its inception as a digital company, Tana has maintained a virtual office with remote workers all across the US. With everyone else working from home, often for the first extended period of time, we wanted to share some advice that has helped Tana be successful outside of the traditional office environment:
- Invest in reliable technology. Shared documents are key to helping keep the virtual office organized.
- Over communicate. Make sure everyone has a conference call number, and if needed, start new traditions for gatherings or events which used to take place in the office.
- Give yourself boundaries, and know when to logoff. Sometimes it’s too easy to have work right across the hallway. It’s important to figure out your own rhythm with the family and personal demands right outside the door.
