Synopsis

'Invaluable guidance on how organizations can embrace the flexibility of remote work while sustaining wellbeing and connection . . . Immensely timely, practical and encouraging.' Caroline Webb, author of How to Have a Good Day

Transform your career or your business with these simple tips and tricks to make virtual working easier than ever before – office no longer required.

The remote work revolution is here. Even before COVID-19 created the largest remote work experiment in history, the business world was already gravitating toward virtual workplaces. Suddenly organizations as big as Twitter are learning that their employees don’t need an office in order to get great results. How to Thrive in the Virtual Workplace shows how to stay productive, feel like part of a team and make the most of remote working.

Robert Glazer shares the principles, tactics and tools his company has developed in more than a decade of successfully working as a joined-up but 100 per cent remote workforce, as well as interviewing other leaders in the sector about what works for them. As founder and CEO of Acceleration Partners, an organization with 170 employees who all work from home, Glazer has been recognized with dozens of awards for its industry performance and company culture. Here, he shares a step-by-step guide to building a culture of flexibility and trust, hiring and communicating effectively – both internally and externally – as a successful remote business.

Robert Glazer has assembled an essential playbook both remote leaders and employees need to build top-tier organizations. This comprehensive book will help you set the right cultural foundation, hire effectively, and ensure top performance in remote work.
