“Be Clear in Your Communication: You always have to be transparent when communicating with your employees. Even if the news are bad, you should still clearly talk with your employees and explain them what is going on within the company. Create time to listen to your employees’ concerns and do your best to solve them. Keep an open channel of communication and get their feedback when necessary.”
This is the big one for me. The others are important, but this is the one I can’t live without in a job. It’s difficult to feel valued when you don’t even know what is going on, and when you have remote employees, they have to be kept in the loop, or they will feel utterly disconnected from the company, which will lead to them leaving.
