As everyone transitioned to working remotely, we all became very familiar with web conferencing platforms like Zoom and WebEx. We also discovered how much energy it takes to be on camera for hours and hours every day. Many L&D specialists are rediscovering distance learning techniques including the "Flipped Learning" model.
Remote work requires slightly more trust in virtual teams, but it is more fragile, easily broken, and harder to rebuild.


Virtual workplaces are advantageous in an information age where technology is expanding rapidly. A virtual workplace enables individuals to work from any place in the world at any time. This is convenient not only for the employee, but for the customer as well. For international business it fits the need for excellent and timely customer service.

What does working virtually really mean?

As businesses move towards fully online systems the requirement to be on-site to provide administrative support is reducing. Virtual implies not physically existing, but the larger concept of virtual working is still to have someone operating in a trusted role within the business construct, but in a way that you physically do not see them for the majority of the work. A virtual work environment can be beneficial for both employers and employees when done correctly. Virtual workplaces streamline systems, decreasing costs as well as increasing efficiency. And a virtual workplace is often easier for employees because it consolidates services and assists in the communication process.

We’ve identified five key factors to run a successful virtual business:

1. Technology The right technology tools will work to keep your team members in touch, keep projects running smoothly, and make information quickly accessible. Tools to help managers set goals & deadlines along with collecting feedback helps them keep tabs on the bigger picture. Communicating virtually has never been easier. Strengthening the connection process helps support a strong company culture – an important detail in a virtual workplace.

2. Trust If a business owner cannot trust their employees to do their jobs remotely, a virtual workplace will fail. There needs to be complete buy-in from the top down to support a flexible work environment based on mutual trust. Specific expectations should be set for employees about their role in the company, the work they own, and how performance will be measured. If this information is clear for all parties involved, then the logistical details of how they get their work done are less important.

3. Time Management Some people may find working virtually too challenging. Separating work time from personal time may be distracting for many. Helping your team to set boundaries for themselves so they can focus productively during their work time while also acknowledging the need for personal time will increase engagement and retention of your virtual workforce.

4. Sense of Community Even if your employees are not together all day they can still enjoy a great sense of bond and purpose and function highly as a team. Encourage employees to make time available during the day so their teammates will know when they can reach out for a quick brainstorm or just to take a virtual break together to chat. And use video chat as much as possible for team calls and virtual meetings.

5. Inform and Acknowledge Sharing company news and information regularly is also valuable to help everyone remember that they are part of something bigger, even as they toil away in their home office. Celebrating successes, milestones, and goal achievements is a great way to highlight all the good things that are happening in the company. Give shout-outs to team members that have had a nice win, finished a project, or overachieved – they will appreciate the recognition.
