COVID-19 presents companies with a completely new challenge: how can I maintain business operations while protecting my employees from the coronavirus? The answer; remote working. But this brings its own challenges. As a remote-first business, BRYTER will be offering a series of online sessions from March 20, where it will share its experience and provide guidance on how to organize your business for remote working.
“Currently, we have more than 70 employees at BRYTER across different countries and time zones. Remote-first means that employees can choose from where they prefer to work or work best. At the same time, we ensure we all stay connected as one BRYTER. Virtual coffees and online meetings via Zoom or Slack offer numerous opportunities to connect with one another. Despite working remotely, the cohesion and motivation amongst our employees and teams are very high. This way of working gives us the opportunity to hire the best people globally for the respective roles available“, explains Michael Grupp, CEO of BRYTER GmbH.
To ensure a remote-first approach works, BRYTER is organized along certain guiding principles. This includes: empowering employees to work anywhere allowing work to revolve around one’s life rather than the other way around; encouraging clear communication; recording tasks to be undertaken and adhering to processes that are in place to avoid information being missed or lost; replacing on-the-job training with self-directed learning; taking a results-driven approach; and making all relevant information easily accessible to employees.
So what might sound simple at first requires proper planning and good organization. In fact, it is the backbone to ensuring BRYTER remains successful and continues to grow its customer base comprising some of the world’s largest corporations, consultancies and law firms.
